Much like the denizens of the night that its title character is purported to protect, the horror-comedy DYLAN DOG: DEAD OF NIGHT has stealthily crept onto our mortal plane, sneaking into a handful of theaters for the consumption of a small (very small) audience. But are those who witness this Buffy-like mash-up of zombies, vampires, werewolves, and ROGER RABBIT discovering a rare, cinematic gem appreciated by a select few, or does distributor Freestyle Releasing have another motivation for giving this film the kind of release that draws as little attention as possible? Join Cinefantastique Online’s Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and Dan Persons as they search for the answer.
Here’s the full-length Trailer for DYLAN DOG: DEAD OF NIGHT.
