From Amazon.co.uk

From a match made in heaven comes a movie spawned in hell! Young hotshot director Robert Rodriquez (El Mariachi, Desperado) teamed up with Pulp Fiction auteur Quentin Tarantino (offering his services as writer and co-star) to make this outrageous, no-holds-barred hybrid of high-octane crime and gruesome horror, From Dusk Till Dawn. QT plays Richard Gecko, a borderline psychopath who breaks his career-criminal brother, Seth (George Clooney), out of prison, after which they rob a bank and leave a trail of dead and wounded in their bloody wake. Then they hijack a mobile home driven by a former Baptist minister (Harvey Keitel) who quit the church after his wife's death and hit the road with his two children (played by Juliette Lewis and Ernest Liu). Heading to Mexico with their hostages, the infamous Gecko brothers arrive at the Titty Twister bar to rendezvous for a money drop, but they don't realise that they've just entered the nocturnal lair of a bloodthirsty gang of vampires! With not-so-subtle aplomb, Rodriguez and Tarantino shift into high gear with a non-stop parade of gore, gunfire and pointy-fanged mayhem featuring Salma Hayek as a snake-charming dancer whose bite is much worse than her bark. If you're a fan of Tarantino's lyrical dialogue and pop-cultural wit, you'll have fun with the road-movie half of this supernatural horror-comedy, but if your taste runs more to exploding heads and eyeballs, sloppy entrails and morphing monsters, the second half provides a connoisseur's feast of gross-out excess. Bon appétit! --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

Richard Gecko (Quentin Tarantino), a deranged rapist, is on a road-kill journey with his brother Seth (George Clooney), whose ass was rotting in jail for bank robbery and murder before he escaped. After killing a bunch of police officers, Texas Rangers and civilians, they kidnap a preacher (Harvey Keitel) and his family (including Juliette Lewis) to cross the Mexican border and flee for the safety of a remote nightclub. But when they face the bar’s truly notorious and blood-thirsty clientele, the Gecko’s are forced to team up with their hostages in order to make it out alive! Directed by Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, Machete) and written by Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds).

Format:DVD
Having trouble finding a good vampire flick that's exciting and scary? Looking for something that doesn't abide by regular horror genera rules? "From Dusk Till Dawn" may be the one to choose. With a sizzling screenplay by Quentin Tarantino and perfectly directed by Robert Rodriguez, this is a horror/thriller to remember.
The Gecko brothers are two extremely violent criminals who end up taking a family hostage. The family is forced to drive the notorious brothers to the end of the border. They end up making a pit stop at a Mexican bar, where the brothers are supposed to meet their contact. However, things get out of hand when it turns out that the place is contaminated with vampire strippers and truckers. You add all of those elements together and you get one hell of a ride that you'll never forget.
I'm not the biggest fan of vampires, but I thought this was an EXCELLENT movie. It's unpredictable and exhilarating. You have no idea where the movie will take you until it's all said and done. This is not your ordinary vampire flick, and that's what makes this movie so great. It's a breath of fresh air and so much more.
The acting really makes the movie what it is. George Clooney gives a remarkable performance (this was before he was the big star that he is today). Quentin Tarantino does a great job of contributing dark and chaotic humor to the film with his role. Other major players include Harvey Keitel, Juliet Lewis, Cheech Marin and plenty more. The screenplay by Tarantino is great and never misses a beat. It's packed with snappy dialogue that one would not expect to hear in a horror movie. Rodriguez does an exceptional job of directing as well.
"From Dusk Till Dawn" is a wildly entertaining flick that really stands out from the others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks great ;) 1 Jan 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
At first i wasn't sure if i should buy the Blu-Ray version of this movie because there were no other reviews but now i'am happy i did it ;)
This Review isn't realy about the movie but more about the Blu-Ray release of it, because everyone should know this movie anyways!

The Case includes nothing but the Blu-Ray.
On the Disc you have besides the movie the following Bonus Features:
Audio Commentary by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino
Outtakes
Hollywood Goes to Hell Featurette
2 Music Videos (After Dark - Tito & Tarantula, She's Just Killing me - ZZ Top)
Stills Gallery
The Art of Making the Movie
Deleted Scenes & Alternative Takes
On the Set Featurette
Theatrical Trailer

These Bonus Features are pretty intresting and give you a good look behind the scenes. (About an Hour and Half)
The Movie looks very nice in 1080p, sure there are Blu-Ray's with better Quality but it's definetly an upgrade from DVD.

I'am very happy that i finally bought this Movie on Blu-Ray and it's well worth it's price.
I hope this Review helps you with the decision whether or not to buy it.

For any misspelling i'am very sorry but english isn't my primary language ;)
If there are any further questions please contact my via comment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Titties are not the only thing twisted! 26 Nov 2004
By Steve
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
.
When I first saw this film on TV, I had no idea what it was about. I switched onto it 20 minutes in and watched with mild interest the developing story of two violent criminals with their hostages escaping to Mexico with a wad of loot. Only the big names and many familiar faces kept me watching. Whilst the performances were powerful, there was little in any of the characters to empathise with. I think you were supposed to quite like the cool and commanding Seth (George Clooney) as he only murdered people "he had to" (as opposed to his psycho brother Richie - played by Quentin Tarrantino - who kills, rapes at the drop of a hat and whines a lot).
It's all a little uncomfortable and serious......until they reach the remote Mexican bar called the Titty Twister. Then it changes. The two crooks take the scared hostages (a disillusioned preacher - played by Harvey Keitel - and his two teenage kids) into this sordid nightspot. The hard customers are all bikers and truckers. There are numerous near naked beauties dancing on tables and in wall niches and here is where the film provides it's shocking twist - all the people working in the bar (including the bare babes - and the gorgeous Salma Hayek who performs a terrifically sensual table dance) are in fact Vampires. Not your Christopher Lee type, but hideous, vile flesh eaters.
In a flash the vampires turn to their hideous state and a gory, but highly humorous battle kicks off as the vampires lay into the motley clientele.
Anyone who has seen the film Desperado will recognise many of the cast of this film.
This is a pretty unique film and I've watched it many times now. I get great pleasure lending it to the unknowing who can benefit from the shock of the film changing from the 'escaped convicts and their hostages' drama to the horror-gore flick it ends as.
Great fun - buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you'd expect from a Tarantino script. 23 Jun 2004
Format:DVD
"From Dusk Till Dawn" has it all; a hilarious script written by none-other than Mr. Pulp Fiction, superb direction by Robert "Desperado" Rodriguez and lashings of ultra-violence.
George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino are brilliant as partners-in-crime who, on a violent killing-spree, have to make their way to the border. But that's the easy part. While Clooney may at first seem slightly mis-cast as foul-mouthed murderer Seth, it soon becomes apparent that he plays the lead character perfectly. Tarantino is equally as good as Clooney's brother.
The plot is almost like two films in one. Watch the film and you'll see what I mean. It's like Tarantino got drunk half-way through writing a crime thriller and turned it into an ultra-violent gorefest, with the kind of insanity only present in the likes of "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre".
From Dusk Till Dawn is certainly not for the faint-hearted, and some of the gore-effects are so ridiculous they're done for laughs (much like "Kill Bill"). It has a superb cast (Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis and Salma Hayek co-starring), a brilliant, completely unexpected (and equally stupid) twist, lots of over-the-top ultra-violence and hilariously cheesy special effects. Brilliant.
