Brandon Routh stars as Dylan Dog, world famous private investigator specializing in affairs of the undead. His PI business card reads "No Pulse? No Problem."

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While he's fine playing bemused and beleaguered, Routh can't muster the edginess that Dylan is also meant to have. Diggs looks fabulous, but has his own problems with the dangerous stuff."
‑ Tom Russo, Boston Globe
"A cluttered, uninspired hash of familiar genre ideas."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night is a fun comedy/horror whodunnit with a supernatural twist. It delivers plenty of movie fun too, just like those campy 80's monster flicks."
‑ Amy Curtis, We Got This Covered
"Dylan Dog works best when it has fun with P.I. conventions; when the monsters take over, it goes downhill."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"...a disappointingly lifeless adaptation..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Brings vampires, werewolves, zombies, detective noir and spoofy comedy together for a murky genre gumbo with barely any flavor."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Lets the likeable erstwhile Superman do his best impression of a jaded P.I., down to one of the most ineffectually boyish attempts at a grizzled voiceover in memory."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"Fun performances from Routh and Huntington can't make up for an extremely convoluted and mostly soulless story -- even when there's a giant zombie running around."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"The movie wants to be a combination film noir and horror comedy, but the timing is all off and the performances are flat across the board."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"Entirely derivative and utterly wretched."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"A monster mash and genre mash-up that leaves one pining for the swagger of Hellboy."
‑ William Goss, Film.com
"Put a stake in this film noir monster movie, it's done."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"A pointless, very loose adaptation of the popular Italian comic that plays like a bad episode of Buffy."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"the whole shebang plays out like a twisted Murder She Wrote episode"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Isn't awful, but it is awfully familiar,...coming across as something that might appear on the SciFi Network on a Saturday night."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
