Six months after the events of Underworld: Evolution, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) was captured by humans. Eventually both government officials and the public learn about the existence of the two immortal species of Vampires and Lycans (Werewolves). A crusade and all-out war has begun: study and eradicate. After being imprisoned in cryogenic suspension for 12 years, Selene manages to escape the facility. During the same time, another subject has also escaped the same facility that Selene was in. That subject was Eve (India Eisley), a hybrid who is the key to ending the war.

Via Spike TV Press Release
Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is a new horror/comedy film based on one of the world’s most popular comics. Brandon Routh stars as Dylan Dog, world famous private investigator specializing in affairs of the undead. His PI business card reads “No Pulse? No Problem.” Armed with an edgy wit and carrying an arsenal of silver and wood-tipped bullets, Dylan must track down a dangerous artifact before a war ensues between his werewolf, vampire and zombie clients living undercover in the monster infested backstreets of New Orleans.
Unfortunately, I’ve read a ton of reviews from Italy and the fans are NOT happy. First off, they don’t understand why Dylan’s sidekick, Groucho Marx, is NOT in the movie. Xarabas, Dylan’s father is not in the movie either as one pointed out. The Italian fans also suggest that we read the comics and see their point of view. Not having the movie set in London also threw them for a loop, even though some fans understand it was probably due to trying to stay within budget.
Even after reading these comments, I think I’ll try to go watch this movie. I can see their point of view as it is one of their iconic characters in their country. Anyone else want to go? It looks like a corny but fun movie. It’s funny enough to see Sam Huntington in it. I think he does a fine job in Syfy’s Being Human, and think he’ll do well here as well.
