New Release: Dylan Dog: Dead of Night Blu-ray and DVD

Dylan Dog: Dead of Night movie scene

Brandon Routh is paranormal private dick Dylan Dog.

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment released the paranormal horror-comedy film Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, starring Brandon Routh (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World), on Blu-ray and DVD on July 26, 2011.

Based on the Italian comic book series Dylan Dog by Tiziano Sclavi, the movie tells the tale of the titular New Orleans-based paranormal detective (Routh) whose clients include all manner of supernatural beasties, be they werewolves, vampires, zombies or even guardians of Hell. Enjoying a kind of semi-retirement, Dylan Dog is forced to return to work to solve an ugly murder that may be the tip of a monstrous approaching war between his clients and humankind!

Directed by Kevin Munroe (TMNT) and co-starring Taye Diggs (Equilibrium), Sam Huntington (TV’s Being Human) and Peter Stormare (Small Town Murder Songs), the 2010 film was highly anticipated, and I was really psyched to see it when it embarked on a limited release in theaters in May 2011. (But, damn, I just couldn’t make it before it was yanked from the few screens it flickered upon.)

Dylan Dog actually played on a not-unimpressive 875 screens, grossing $1.2 million at the box office.

No bonus features are on the Blu-ray and DVD, which carry the list prices of $29.98 and $22.98, respectively.

Here’s the colorful looking trailer:
