Trivia

In a photograph in Dylan's flat, we can see him and his assistant masked as Groucho Marx. In another scene, we can see that Dylan keeps his weapons stashed in a safe behind a Duck Soup (1933) poster (a Marx brothers movie). Both are references to the Dylan Dog comics on which this movie is loosely based on. Although in the comics, Dylan's assistant, sidekick and comical relief is not the zombie from the movie, but a stage actor who looks exactly like Groucho Marx, calls himself Groucho, and always dresses and behaves like the legendary comedian (it's implied this is due to the character's slight insanity).

Goofs

When Dylan takes the handgun from the disgruntled husband early in the film, he is shown making the weapon safe. However, by racking the slide BEFORE ejecting the magazine, this would eject a cartridge but immediately replace it with another. So unless the businessman came with only one bullet, the gun would still have a bullet left in the chamber. See more »

I'm a big fan of Dylan Dog, by the way, that is comic book, and the writer or writers of this movie haven't read a single page of it.

The story is not even close to this and the characters are all wrong presented. One of the most important character is missing, Dylan's sidekick Groucho Marx, who gives whole new dimension to the comic and is one of the reasons why is this comic so great.

This could be fun for the people who never read Dylan Dog but for us fans, this is desecration of a great comic. I'd rather recommend "Dellamorte Dellamore"(Cemetery Man) with Rupert Everett which was written by Tiziano Sclavi, the author of Dylan Dog.

For fans who like their comics with good stories and not with just "smash-bash", and who like supernatural stuff, i recommend you not to waste time with this move but to try to find comic Dylan Dog, and like me, to wait for someone to make a really good movie about Dylan Dog.
