From Amazon.co.uk

This box set collects From Dusk Till Dawn and its two lesser-known sequels, plus a wealth of associated material. None are horror classics, but taken as a trilogy the series offers above-average thrills and an interesting invented mythology.

The original is a trashy but fun crime spree/vampire movie, directed by Robert Rodriguez, with Quentin Tarantino doing one job too many as producer, writer and co-star. The crime movie half is suspenseful and flavoursome and the left turn into horror begins wonderfully, but the script makes the mistake of getting rid of the flamboyant monster villains too quickly, replacing them with an orgy of rubbery Evil Dead II-style effects. It never gets boring, there's a terrific Tex-Mex-Gothic soundtrack and Rodriguez stages shoot-outs better than anyone not called John Woo. It was a big enough hit to warrant sequels made for the video market, shot back-to-back in South Africa (doubling for Texas and Mexico).

From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money begins as another cowboy noir, with ex-con Robert Patrick playing cat and mouse with Texas Ranger Bo Hopkins. It segues into horror as heist man Duane Whitaker runs into a bat on the highway and proceeds to turn his gang into vampires who engage during a total eclipse in a Wild Bunch-style bank raid-cum-shootout.

Switching genres and playing the prequel game, From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter is more distinctive. A cod-spaghetti Western, it takes a plot nugget from history as the aged Ambrose Bierce (Michael Parks, the Sheriff killed before the credits in the first film) tangles with vampires in Mexico in 1914 en route to his mythic disappearance. Though it has the best storyline of the trio, it still degenerates into a compilation of horror gags in its carnage-strewn climax.

On the DVD: From Dusk Till Dawn is identical to the previous collector's edition release, while the sequels here appear on disc for the first time in great-looking 1.85:1 widescreen, which shows off the attempts made by directors Scott Spiegel and P.J. Pesce to add visual quality to reruns of the original's plot.

A second disc included in the first movie's keepcase features "Full Tilt Boogie", a light but informative feature-length documentary about making an effects-heavy film on the cheap; there's also a Rodriguez-Tarantino commentary; alternate and deleted scenes (more gore effects); excerpts from the film intercut with on-the-set-footage and commented on by Rodriguez and effects man Greg Nicotero; the trailer; Rodriguez music videos; a still gallery; cast and crew bios. If you count the sequels as extras in their own right, it's not that disappointing that they only rate one tiny extra between them, a deleted snippet from The Hangman's Daughter originally intended as an after-the-end-credits punchline.--Kim Newman

Product Description

Box set featuring all three 'From Dusk Till Dawn' movies. In the first Quentin Tarantino and George Clooney play Richard and Seth Gecko, a pair of brothers on the run together after a prison break. The brothers have kidnapped a preacher (Harvey Keitel) and his children and hidden out in an isolated nightclub. However, the club is full of bloodthirsty types, and the captors and convicts soon team up to preserve their skins. In 'From Dusk Till Dawn 2' a gang of murderous bank-robbers head down to Mexico with the plans for the perfect heist. Unfortunately, en route, they stop at the wrong bar, and end up confronted by a host of vampires. As the robbers begin to develop a strong taste for blood, it is up to the last human gang member (Robert Patrick) and a Texan sheriff (Bo Hopkins) to thwart their vampiric desires and escape. Finally, 'From Dusk Till Dawn 3 - The Hangman's Daughter' goes back to the time when the whole saga began. Johnny Madrid, on the run after kidnapping the beautiful Esmeralda, daughter of the man who tried to hang him, takes shelter in an isolated inn. Unfortunately however, the inn is run by vampires and Esmeralda is in fact their long-awaited princess, the legendary half-human, half-vampire Santanico Pandemonium. This means it will probably be a sleepless night for most concerned.

Format:DVD
I must admit I took a punt on this - but it paid off. We all know the first Tarantino film is great, but the follow ups - parts 2 & 3 - could have been awful. But they were OK.

OK - I admit it, they were more than OK, in fact, they were pretty good. They weren't amazing, granted, but they weren't unwatchable by a long stretch and I'm sure if you like vampire filcks you'll enjoy them.

The second part of the trilogy -Texas Blood Money - has a plot centred round a bank heist gone wrong and reminds me a bit of another Tarantino film: Killing Zoe Killing Zoe [DVD] [1994], which I happen to think is a great film. There's blood and carnage galore and enough of a story line to keep you guessing. All in all, I think it's a pretty good watch once it gets going.

In the final Instalment - The Hangman's Daughter - we learn more about the origins of characters and the location of the 1st film. Set in old Mexico this is another new take of the vampire genre: The Vampire-Spaghetti Western. Again it's better than it sounds and is a good way to wrap up a nice, fun little trilogy. A trilogy that receives bonus points for turning the vampire genre on its head, and credibility - if for no other reason - than the fact that it was spawned by Quentin Tarantino himself.

I bought my box set years ago and I'm constantly selling DVDs to make way for new ones; haven't sold these ones though. In fact I think it's about time for another watch.

7 or maybe even 8 out of 10 from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1 great film, 2 minors. 6 May 2003
Format:DVD
The first time I saw From Dusk Till Dawn, I thought I was watching a different film. The reviews said 'Vampire movie' I was not watching a vampire movie. at least, I didn't think so.
Which is probably what makes the film so bizarre. You are convinced that it is your standard crime movie. Until that fateful moment when...
Ok, I won't spoil it. Excellent CGI effects make this a superbly presented vampire film, different from all others.
The sequels are definitely worth watching, but neither can match the first.
The third film, The Hangman's daughter, is basically a remake of the first. It has a very similar storyline. The second film is not bad, but the lack of Rodriguez' and Tarantino's contributions are its downfall!
Everybody should at least own the first episode of these fine films, and if you like that one, buy the rest.

4.0 out of 5 stars From Dusk to Yawn? 27 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This ais the complete three film box set. Each film is supplied in it's own disc case,eclosed in a card outer case, the first film being a double disc affair containing the bonus disc of extras [which i found mostly superflous waffle].
The first film starts with Seth Gecko [George Clooney] and his perverse brother Richie [Quentin Tarantino] heading for mexico following a successful robbery. Without giving too much away they [and the hostages they take on their journey] end up at a desert wtaering hole where the adult entertainment runs from 'Dusk till dawn'. The box set is worth getting for this film alone and I'd rate this as a 5 star. The second film From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money has little to do with the first one, although some characters do reappear. This is the weakest of the three and is simply a bank heist with vampires and it barely gets a 3 star rating.
The third installment From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter is actually.a prequel set many decades before the first film and helps to explain something on the background to the club that is central to all the films. Not as good as disc one, but worth 4 stars.
Overall these have sufficient gore to entertain most viewrs and plenty of eye candy for all [especially the first disc].Tarentino is at his creepy best,Salma Hayek as Santánico Pandemonium steals the stage, but is sadly not on screne for long.Overall the discs include a range of star talent but the box set is not worth 20 but get it cheaper and you're onto a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars best vampire flick of all time 14 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
this is a terrific film, a great cast, great script written by quentin tarrantino, and great efx. george clooney is terrific in the main role and ably supported by tarrantino who, proves that he can act, and harvey keitel and juliet lewis who we all know are very fine actors.parts 2 and 3 are understandably inferior which was bound to happen after the first film, but they are good enough examples of the genre. this is so much more than a horror flick, it's very well priced for a box set so get your copy now - you'll not regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far better than I'd expected 18 Nov 2011
By CJ
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Most of us will have seen the film Dusk till Dawn, and know it to be an entertaining, engaging and truely original film. As you'd expect, the sequel and prequel don't live up to it, but they're not too far off.

To be honest, Dusk till Dawn 2 screams B movie, and never shows anything that elevates it's status from there. It is enjoyable to watch, but I don't think anyone would rate it higher than 3 stars.

The prequel on the other hand clearly has a touch of class about it, this much is clear from the outset with the picture quality and cinematography on display. The cast is also quite impressive and again, the film delivers value in entertainment. I'd rate this as a 4 star film.

To sum up, if you don't own Dusk till Dawn but are thinking of buying it then I'd recommend buying this box set for the price of only a few extra quid.
