This Month I watched From Dusk till Dawn and the sequels. I absolutely loved them- the original film ranking first, of course. Check out my two sentence review for each film!
From Dusk Till Dawn, 1996 – Robert Rodriguez
The best of the bunch, an all out crime thriller that takes a dramatic twist into horror during its final act. Starring Tarantino and George Clooney, Tarantino also co- writing it, so you just know it’s going to be good. 5/5
From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money, 1999 – Scott Spiegel
You take away Tarantino’s wonderful dialogue and most of the charm present in the original film and you get From Duck Till Dawn 2. While it’s not a complete failure (it still has that crime turns horror goofy-ness) it still fails to stand up to the original. 2.5 / 5
From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman’s Daughter, 1999 – P. J. Pesce
Technically a prequel, technically a disaster. We’ve taken a sudden and disastrous turn and ended up in period piece- it has the feeling of the first two films but got seriously lost somewhere. 1.5 /5
Best Moment of the series: Tarantino drinking from alcohol pouring off Salma Hayek’s foot.
Worst Moment of the series: Can the last film not exist, please?
