Disc 1: From Dusk Till Dawn
From the creators of Pulp Fiction and Desperado comes this wild and wicked action thriller about two bothers on a desperate crime spree. Quentin Tarantino stars as a deranged convict who, along with his brother (George Clooney), kidnaps a preacher and his two kids (including Juliette Lewis--Natural Born Killers) and flees for the safety of a remote nightclub in Mexico. But once they arrive, they discover that the club is anything but a safe haven for criminals. Its bloodthirsty clientele forces the brothers to team up with their hostages in order to escape alive.

From a match made in heaven comes a movie spawned in hell! From Dusk Till Dawn sees young hotshot director Robert Rodriquez (El Mariachi, Desperado) team up with Pulp Fiction auteur Quentin Tarantino (offering his services as writer and costar) to make this outrageous, no-holds-barred hybrid of high-octane crime and gruesome horror. Tarantino 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-film 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. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com
On the DVD: the DVDs lavish features on us. The outtakes and deleted scenes are more of the same--exploding bellies, pus, blood and naked women with large teeth. The documentary "Full Tilt Boogie" is entertaining enough; the row with the unions, which it faithfully records, raises real issues about independent filmmakers and their work force. There are two music videos, a stills gallery, a reasonably acute commentary by Rodriguez and Tarantino and material about the art direction. The film is presented in Dolby Digital and a widescreen ratio of 1.85:1 as well as an ordinary one of1.33.1. --Roz Kaveney

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.
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.
The first 45 minutes or so is just pure genius with creditable performances from Clooney and Tarantino and Harvey Keitel also doing well. But things change rapidly thereafter after crossing the border into Mexico and arriving at the 'Titty twister', which happens to be open from Dusk til Dawn...
An 'interesting' cameo from Salma Hayek insues, and then all hell breaks loose. Sheer genius with characters such as 'sex machine'...
For those not into vampire films, don't simply be put off. It's a good film regardless of the fact that i love a good zombie/vampire film anyway...
Despite the comic aspects of this film, Clooney delivers a slick cool performance to rival that of Travolta in Pulp Fiction, Harvey Keitel flexes his acting muscles and Salma Hayek makes an impressionable performance with a giant snake.
Rodriguez intoduces some of the cast and props from desperado (Sex machines dick like pistol,)which will give Desperado fans something to enjoy.
In short, if you like Desperado and Pulp Fiction, you'll love this film.
