Dylan Dog: Dead of Night Blu-Ray Quick Review

Matt Boiselle

If you were one of the handful (pretty accurate count) of people that spent their hard-earned money to watch Dylan Dog: Dead of Night in theaters, then you won't be disappointed with the release of the film on Blu-Ray,because you saw the exact same copy of the film as you will on this release. This truly is a bare bones version of the movie, only accompanied by one (count it) trailer.

The movie, while a victim of poor marketing and even worse distribution (less than 1000 screens worldwide), wasn't terrible, but it failed to even make a ripple in the big box office pool. If you are looking for a decent creature- feature time killer, give this one a go. Brandon (Superman) Routh stars as P.I. Dylan Dog who is trying to solve a murder while attempting to prevent an all out large scale war between different factions of the undead (zombies, werewolves, vampires, you name it.) When all was said and done, this was a long 100 minutes but mildly entertaining at best. Websites and stores will probably have this for differing prices, but unless you are a huge fan of this film, I would advise waiting until you can pick this up off of a sale rack.

  1. Dylan Dog, since it is an Italian comic, he's really famous in my country (guess where I come from.. ;) ) The movie didn't had so much success here because, trying to adapt the character and the story/background for the international market, they changed it so much that the real fans of the comic didn't liked it very much...
