Review of From Dusk Till Dawn   

Vampires. No Interviews.

Two brothers go on the road and run from the law, and what seems like the hard part of earning their money is over. Over the border and safe in Mexico, now all they have to do is wait at a bar until morning for what they deserve. Little did they know the bar they headed to was possessed with both good and bad traits. The Titty Twister is full of women who drop clothes like they’re on fire for the crowd and make the night one to remember. If that doesn’t get every guy's attention, the part where they lock in everyone, turn to vampires and kill all the customers who have instantly lost their hard ons. Each brother has something to bring them to the screen individually. The character played by George Clooney is extremely badass Seth Gecko; who’s quick with a gun and not afraid to do battle. Making somewhat of a cameo (he wrote this and partially directed it) is the infamous Quentin Tarantino playing Seth’s brother Richard, who is extremely disturbed and can not stop killing the hostages he accompanies, even if they cooperate. Trapped in this hellish nudey bar and skilled enough to stand a chance against them, the Gecko brothers team up with their hostages and other customers to stay alive until dawn; until the sun becomes the living’s chance at freedom. There are multiple scenes of violence, it reminded me almost of a tales from the crypt movie, much like Demon Knight. Nudity, parties and sharp things headed into flesh, a definite piece Director Robert Rodriguez should be proud of and call among his best films. Making his appearance in front of the screen is makeup legend Tom Savini, playing a dangerous gunman named Sex Machine, who’s deadliest weapon is right between his legs and hard as a rock! Very creative to put that gun in a film, along with a whip, which I actually got to see him use at a horror convention last year.. What a Hoot he is! At least twice in this movie is the coping with an infected relative who is no longer human, but possesses the face and body the loved one once knew. Forced to shoot or become a vampire, the scenes are very well acted and make the viewer relate to that in their own way. Great film by itself, 3rd one sucked and I have yet to see the 2nd, but can’t see it being anywhere near this one’s caliber.

Richie: He's in the bathroom. Why don't I just go in there, shoot him in the back of the head, and we can get the fuck out of here.
Pete Bottoms: Don't do that! Look, you asked me to act natural, I'm acting natural - in fact, under the circumstances, I think I ought get a fuckin' Academy Award for how natural I'm acting.

8/10
