11. Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night
Director: Kevin Munroe
Stars: Brandon Routh, Sam Huntington, Taye Diggs, Anita Briem, Peter Stormare, Kurt Angle
Who better to lead a campy horror-comedy than Brandon Routh…wait, what? Playing a private investigator who specializes in hunting down supernatural troublemakers, the man who should never have been Clark Kent is neither funny nor edgy, a double-sided issue that makes everything else in the comic book adaptation Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night have to work that much harder to salvage the proceedings.
Surprise, surprise, none of it works. As Routh’s wise-cracking, undead sidekick, Sam Huntington inadvertently gives Jamie Kennedy some unnecessary competition, and Taye Diggs, miscast as the film’s central villain, tosses nuance aside and enters full-on ham mode. The lackluster vampires, werewolves, and shoddy CGI beasties that fill out the rest of this unsuccessful horror-noir hybrid are even worse. The direct-to-video gods must’ve been sleeping.
