Product Description

Product Description

Quentin Tarantino stars as Richard Gecko, an escaped convict on the run with his brother Seth (George Clooney). The pair 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! Robert Rodriguez directs from Quentin Tarantino's script.

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

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.

Format: DVD
It was probably the most fun I had at the cinema back in 1996. I absolutely love From Dusk Till Dawn, very much one of those films that you either buy into or you don't. There's no surprise element with the film, you get everything that director Robert Rodriguez and writer Quentin Tarantino said you would get; a hard buttocked road movie that turns into a raging B horror movie gore fest.

The plot, for what's it's worth, sees two criminal brothers, Seth {George Clooney} & Richie Gecko {Tarantino} on the lam after Richie breaks Seth out of prison. They are heading for the haven of Mexico with wads of cash garnered from a robbery. After overcoming a couple of fatal {for others} hiccups, the brothers, in need of a vehicle, kidnap faithless minister Jacob (Harvey Keitel), his daughter Kate (Juliette Lewis) and adopted son Scott {Ernest Liu }. From here they must make it to a rendezvous point in Mexico; a bar called the Titty Twister, where they will exchange cash with a friend of Seth's and start their new lives as Mexican civilians. Trouble is is that the Titty Twister isn't no ordinary bar, it's a vampire stronghold and the Geko's-and there newly acquired captives, are on the menu. Can they make it till dawn and let the daylight be their saviour? Swearing, blood, limbs severed, nudity, violence, sexual references, guns, more violence, more blood, other weapons, lots of teeth, bats, a snake, more violence. On it goes really, yet as Rodriguez and Tarantino start thrusting a blunt blade into your stomach, you really should be feeling them also caressing the funny bones in both your arms. For it's a key point that From Dusk Till Dawn is a dam funny film as well, something that bizarrely many critics have failed to understand.

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.

A classic and brilliant film and a must have for fans of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino's writing is in sync with his best work and Rodriguez creative spin on the story really drives this masterpiece home. George Clooney's first film appearance that shot him into the limelight acting alongside classic stars like Harvey Kietel. A good vampire film is a rare occurance and only Tarantino and Rodriguez can make it look so easy. The script and story are so well pieced together that you forget it's a vampire film until they suddenly appear out of no where.

The film starts with the Gecko Brothers. Seth (Clooney) and Richard (Tarantino) are on the run from the law and are making their way to mexico. They take a family hostage and use their recreational vehicle, The father played by Harvey Kietel and his daughter played by Kate Lewis and his adopted son. After making it across the border they end up at a seedy bar by the brilliant name of "Titty Twister" (Just as good as Tarantino's 'Jack Rabbit Slims' restraunt in Pulp Fiction) as they are waiting to meet an associate. It turns out to be the worst decision of the day, as the bar turns out to be a hunting ground for the good ol' vamps! From there on end its every human for themselves and a fight they'll never forget! A truly brilliant film and well worth the purchase.

The two disc edition also has the documentary 'Full Tilt Boogie' made by Tarantino's appointed editor Sarah Kelly. The documentary takes us into a no holds barred view on the making of this film. Its a great look into the film making process for any aspiring film maker and overall a really well made documentary.

Overall i feel this film is a must for any Tarantino fans and any Rodriguez fans and is a good mix of well written humour, nail biting tension and great action sequences. Totally worth the purchase and is deffinately one of my favoroutes!
