Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is an American horror/comedy film that mixes of the subgenres of vampires with werewolves and zombies. It is based on an Italian comic book series by Tiziano Sclavi called Dylan Dog, which was first published in 1986 by Sergio Bonelli. The film was directed by Kevin Munroe with a screenplay by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer. It was produced in 2010 and released theatrically in the United States on April 29th, 2011. Dylan Dog stars Brandon Routh, Sam Huntington, Anita Briem and Taye Diggs. Routh's character, the eponymous Dylan Dog is a private investigator who deals with an extremely exclusive clientele - monsters. Along with his sidekick-turned-zombie Marcus, Dylan finds himself caught in the middle of a cold war between vampires and werewolves, one that may threaten to erupt in the streets of New Orleans, unless he can bring peace to the varying factions. The unasked question becomes however, does he really want to?
