ZAM: Wishing Well Wednesday

Wishing Well Wednesday is a new weekly feature showcasing the books we have on our wish lists and those we’re looking forward to being published.

Since Shamblin’ Dave has been chatting about movies this week, I thought I’d stick with that theme and talk about the movie I’m looking forward to seeing soon.

Dylan Dog: Dead of Night premiered in the US 29 April. So far, the reviews range “just ok” to “don’t waste your time”. But, I’ve always been a fan of campy horror, so I’m going to ignore the reviews and watch it anyway. I’m guessing it’s safe to say that it isn’t going to be a favorite like ‘Shaun of the Dead’.

If you’re interested in checking out what people are saying about the vampire-zombie mash-up based on the Italian comic, here are a few to get you started:

  • IMDB rating: 5.3/10 after 743 votes
  • Rotten Tomatoes rating: 5% tomato; 43% liked it
  • Robert Abele with the The Chicago Tribune says, “Simply put, fans of bloodsucking, claw-swiping, flesh-rotting entertainment have enough going on in pop culture without needing to waste their time with “Dylan Dog: Dead of Night.”
  • Adam Markovitz with Entertainment Weekly rated it C- saying, “Look for this one to make a swift retreat to the DVD afterlife.”

Have you seen it? What’d ya think of it?

I’m also interested to know …. do poor reviews keep you from watching a movie? Or do you spend the money and take a chance anyway?
