The adventures of supernatural private eye, Dylan Dog, who seeks out the monsters of the Louisiana bayou in his signature red shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans.
Have you ever wondered if the person next to you was really part of your world? They might look ALMOST similar to you; act ALMOST similar to you, but you feel that something isn’t quite right with them and you can’t put your finger on it. They take the third-shift jobs, the warehouse jobs, the jobs that keep them in the shadows and out of the glare of daylight. They are the creatures of the night who live and work next to us and for the most part — leave us alone. Vampires, werewolves, and zombies: they hide in plain sight all around us, living and working, by their own rules but avoiding attention of humankind whenever possible. And yes, occasionally, breaking their own laws as well as society’s, including killing each other and unwary or unlucky “civilians.” Dylan Dog is the world’s only private investigator of the undead with his business card clearly reading “investigator of the paranormal: no pulse, no problem”. While he knows all of their underworld secrets and intercine rivalries, Dylan is also increasingly convinced that, like any normal person, the less he has to do with the undead and their myriad problems, the better. However, a missing artifact, a beautiful heiress and a brutal murder conspire to drag him back into the dark world of the undead. “Dead of Night” is a gothic thriller based upon one of the world’s bestselling series of graphic novels, “Dylan Dog,” and is set in the European-feel backstreets of New Orleans, a city with a long and storied history with regards to the supernatural.
And that’s where Dylan comes in…
He has the bravado of Indiana Jones and the brainpower of Ben Cates — Dylan will go where the living dare not — facing down friend and foe alike, until justice is done. But in this new case, Dylan may have bit off more than he can handle. An ancient artifact has surfaced, one with the power to destroy both the living and the undead forever, and it sets off a war between factions of the dead that has been brewing for eons. Can Dylan find the artifact, uncover the killer among the dead, and at the same time keep his out-of-the-loop assistant Marcus from discovering the true nature of his job? Wait and see. Based on the beloved Italian comic book series, Dylan Dog created in 1986 by Tiziano Sclavi and published by Sergio Bonelli Editore (SBE) which has sold over 60 million units in over seventeen countries around the world. Dylan’s adventures have always tipped their hat to traditional horror elements with numerous “tributes” to the classic monsters (i.e. Frankenstein, The Werewolf, Dracula and many others), but they also deal with questioning the human condition: often putting Dylan in situations that point at the real monster — mankind itself. The collective major studio talent that brought you “Men in Black,” “Superman Returns,” “Premonition” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT – 2007),” have taken the world of Dylan Dog out of its comic book European setting and have given Dylan and the story a rich New Orleans flavor and three-time Academy Award-winning make-up effects company, DRAC Studios (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Bram Stokers’ Dracula”) will make you believe it.
