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!

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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.See all Product Description

Tarantino and Clooney are bank robbing brothers who grab conflicted widowed preacher Harvey Keitel and his kids in an attempt to make it over the Mexican boarder to cash in their loot. Taking refugee at a strip bar over the boarder, things get well and truly out control well the occupants turn out to be vampires intent on having the new arrivals on their menu.
Bluray has a solid video and audio presentation that would make DVD upgrades a no-brainer, also included are some of the following;

Suprisingly, Kietel turns in a (for him) sub par performance. Tarantino continues, in the face of all reality to continue to act when he plainly has no talent for it. Juliette Lewis is only slightly better. The film would be a great deal less enjoyable except for Clooney, whose violent take-no-sh@t-from-anyone Seth Gecko steals the show from all and sundry.
Further support comes from two of their fellow embattled brothers in arms. A biker known as "sex machine" with the most laugh out loud firearm you'll ever see, and a grizzled black Vietnam veteran with (you guessed it) a story to tell about being in country.
Cheech Martin has a number of roles in the film. Why, is never explained. Particularly as they are all clearly Cheech Martin. His vampire MC's pitch is priceless, however.
Is this film worth watching? Sure.
Is it worth buying? Sure.
It may not be a great film, but it is a great film to watch with a beer and some buddies.
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.Read more ›
