Trivia

In the comics, Dylan Dog's sidekick is a Groucho Marx impersonator who goes by the name Groucho and behaves exactly like the comedian, having lost all recollection of his true identity. This had to be changed for the film, due to legal issues related to the use of Groucho's likeness. See more »

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 »

Quotes

Marcus: I guess we could just talk about the location of the flesh-eating zombie when you guys are done boning.

In defense of Dylan Dog
20 March 2011 | by lucamaffei92See all my reviews

I've been waiting for this movie for many years and I've followed every news about the production since 2007. I'm not a very obstinate fan of "Dylan Dog" but I like it. In Italy "Dylan Dog" is a sort of religion because in the late 80's early 90's every teenager have read at least one episode of the comic book series. Now, this movie is slaughtered by Italian critics and fan because of his "infidelity" against the comics: in the movie there is no Groucho (DYD assistant), no inspector Bloch, no London and that is enough to cause the terrible reaction of all Italian fans. Obviously the greatest part of DYD fans decided to suppress this movie months before it's coming in cinemas. I've seen "Dylan Dog: Dead of Night" and I must say that it's a very funny movie, with a good balance of horror/comedy/action parts. Brandon Routh is able to play the part of "Nightmare's Investigator" and his character is more faithful than what is said. For reasons of money it was impossible to set the movie in London but the setting of New Orleans is the best alternative option that director Kevin Munroe could do. For the same reason there isn't Groucho, DYD assistant, but the character of Marcus replaces him with no regrets. I think it's a miracle that an American production company decided to make a film about an Italian comic and I'm very glad for this decision and for the result because I've seen in this project two very precious qualities, very important to make a good adaptation: passion and respect. I'm waiting for a sequel and I recommend to everyone to see this movie!
