From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) Review:

From Dusk Till Dawn is in the pure vein of Rodriguez’s movie: B-movie inspired, explosive and filled with brilliant characters and really twisted ideas!

The characters are crazy. Georges Clooney plays a true badass hero/villain. Quentin Tarantino plays his lustful and totally unstable brother. Tom Savini plays Sex Machine, a guy with a penis-like gun! And if you think this a strange idea, wait until you see the film, for it stuffed with a similarly brilliant concept, sometimes obvious, sometimes just seen in the background, such as a vampire band playing with instruments made out of human corpses. One will really need to watch this film multiple times to appreciate how much attention was given to even the slightest details. The atmosphere in the bar is truly what you would expect from a remote vampire repair: bloody and lusty.

The cast is very impressive: to the three cited above (Clooney, Tarantino, and Savini), you must add Harvey Kaetel (Reservoirs Dogs), Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers), Danny Trejo (Machete), Cheech Martin, Fred Williamson, etc. The list goes on but let’s not forgets Salma Hayek. Her dancing scene with the white snake is one of the most hypnotic scenes in all of horror cinema (and the first one to be featured in our Cult Scene of the Week series!).

I could talk forever about that film, which stands in my top 10 favorite horrors ever, but the one thing I need to add is a sentence about the music. If you haven’t yet, I really encourage you to get the soundtrack for that film…it is simply my very favorite soundtrack all movie included.
