From Dusk Till Dawn back to product details

I have to set this one straight.

I've been reading the reviews here and I just have to point something out. It seems to me this is a perfect example of a love/hate film for one reason, and that is the sudden plot change from a crime/gangster movie to campy horror and vampires. Now personally, I loved it because it completely catches you off guard. Granted I knew about the vampires beforehand and I only wish I had seen this movie without knowing anything about it. You have to open your mind up and just be entertained. This may seem pretentious but the film breaks barriers and conventions because of the radical change. How many movies switch genres half-way through and offer the possibility of any character being killed? Horror movies lately have the characters you know will survive and the minor characters you are just waiting to see bite the dust. This combined with the first half of Tarantino's script work very well an odd way..

Funny as hell!!

Rent a sense of humor!!
This movie ranks with Night of the Living Dead and its two movies in one! Tarantino is the perfect psycho killer.

This movie sucked!!! (And not in a good vampire way.) Usually, if it has a vampire in it, I like it. I also like George Clooney and find Cheech Marin hilarious. I've been enjoying horror movies since I was 9 or 10 years old. So you'd think I'd like From Dusk till Dawn. Wrong.
The movie fell apart after they entered the bar. From then on, all you saw were half naked women or bodies slashed into bloody pulps. As Hneline1 states, the plot just disappeared. Maybe if the bar had been filled with almost naked men instead of women, I might have liked it better. I doubt it. My advice is: Don't bring a date if you are going to insist on watching this movie.

It's like Rocky Horror

But No Singing, No Transvestites, No Rocket Ship, No Married Couple, No Tim Curry. Cheech of Cheech & Chong fame plays 3 Characters. Guys Like it, Girls don't.

Bad Quentin, Bad

What starts out as your normal, shockingly violent Quentin Tarantino gun flick suddenly metamorphs into a nonsensical, common-variety horror flick. Plot development gets dropped. Character development gets dropped. All you have left is a vehicle for Quentin to show off naked women at a strip club turning into ugly vampires who get killed repeatedly in a variety of bloody ways. Yuck.
