For the uninitiated, the original 'Dylan Dog' comics from Tiziano Sclavi (who also created the later adapted, 'Cemetery Man') is a Dark Horse (US) published horror series about a paranormal investigator, mainly taking place in London. It's a good enough setup for the kind of scenarios that, at least visually, would spring to life in wonderfully horrific fashion if brought to film. Unfortunately, the only adaptation we have is a very tame 2010 release staring Brandon Routh, and it dropped with nary a whimper let alone a howl.
Thankfully there are those who still believe in the spirit of a 'Dylan Dog' production, this time made for the small screen, and running with a crew that can better capture the essence of Sclavi's gruesome work.
Enter passionate fan, Kevin Kopacka, who's penchant for hypnotically captivating visuals (see his short films 'TLMEA' and 'HADES') serve perfectly, the reimagining of 'Dylan Dog' as a "Nightmare Investigator" solving what should be, some disturbing cases of paranormal activity.
The upcoming series simply titled 'DYLAN', will see a release sometime this year, and not to leave you high and dry, peep the teaser trailer below to better understand how this new direction can finally do the original comic series some justice.
