Violent detective/horror/comedy combo wastes a good idea.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this comic book-based detective story about a human in charge of keeping tabs on a community of vampires, werewolves, and zombie in New Orleans has both horror and comedy elements. There's strong monster violence and fighting; scenes include guns, knives, dead bodies, and blood. There's a bit of minor sensuality (characters kiss and wake up in bed together, but no sensitive body parts are shown) and some swearing (including "s--t"). A fictitious drug, vampire blood, is part of the plot, and viewers see minor characters going through withdrawals and "shooting up."

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about the movie's monster-related violence and fighting. Is the movie scary? How does the movie's often-comic tone affect the impact of the violence?
  • How successfully does this movie combine three genres: the detective movie, the horror movie, and the comedy? Was the mystery intriguing? Were the monsters scary? Was the movie funny?
  • Is Dylan a good role model, or is he more of an antihero? What are his good traits? What could he do better?

I really really really wish that Munroe's unproduced animated film Cat Tale was released instead of this. Crap that's absolutely trashy. I hated this movie. Cat Tale would definetely better than this. Even if its bad.

Silly junk has ludicrous situations and mostly uninspired acting but Sam Huntington is enjoyably glib and charmingly goofy.
