Dylan Dog Dead of Night
UPDATE: You can read my review here.
I think I posted a leaked international trailer last year. This looks much improved. Still has that 80s vibe going on though — like something you might have seen right next to Fright Night, The Lost Boys and Monster Squad at the corner video store. We've come a long way since then. Aside from a few notable exceptions like Shaun of the Dead, horror mixed with comedy is usually box office poison. The comic has a huge following in Italy, but I'm not sure Dylan Dog will pique the interest of American audiences.
The Fright Night remake comes out later this year and Monster Squad is currently in development. It'll be interesting to see if producers and writers were successful in taking 80s camp and updating it for 21st century audiences.
