“Living investigator. Undead clients. Zombie partner. No pulse? No problem.”
So says the tagline of the upcoming flick Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, which is hitting theaters April 29, 2011. When I first heard about this movie months ago I figured the only undead in it were zombies, not vampires, but according to the official Dylan Dog website there are vampires in the film as well. Woo! Another vampire film to look forward to!
“Based one of the world’s bestselling comic book series with over 70 million readers worldwide, Dylan Dog: Dead of Night blends horror, humor and sophisticated storytelling set in the backstreets of New Orleans – a city with a long and stories history with the supernatural. The story revolves around Dylan Dog, the world’s only private investigator of the undead with a business card that features his slogan, “No pulse, No problem,”
Having left the world of the supernatural behind after the death of his wife, Dylan is pulled back into action to solve the murder of a mysterious woman’s father. Along with his zombie assistant Marcus, he finds himself drawn into the middle of a battle between the clans of vampire, werewolf and zombie for possession of a rare artifact to control both the mortal and monster world. Dylan must go where the living dare not in order to solve the case, save mankind and keep his partner from losing any more body parts.”
Sounds pretty badass and the trailer below is hilarious, I can’t wait to see this one!
Fans of the comic are already spazzing out over the differences between the movie and the comics, but since I’ve never actually read the comic, I’m pretty excited for the film myself. Plus Sam Huntington from Being Human is in it, and I adore him! What do you guys think? Do you plan on heading to the theater to check this one out? Or is it more of a wait ‘til DVD type of film?
