From Dusk Till Dawn (1996 vs 2021) Cast: Then and Now


On the run from a bank robbery that left several police officers dead, Seth Gecko (George Clooney) and his paranoid, loose-cannon brother, Richard (Quentin Tarantino), hightail it to the Mexican border.

Kidnapping preacher Jacob Fuller (Harvey Keitel) and his kids, the criminals sneak across the border in the family’s RV and hole up in a topless bar.

Unfortunately, the bar also happens to be home base for a gang of vampires, and the brothers and their hostages have to fight their way out.

From Dusk till Dawn is like The Devil’s Rejects meets The Lost Boys, with the harshness of one and the goofiness of the other. Its a fun ride throughout and generally seems to have the right idea about making a film like this, don’t take it seriously! With Rodgriguez at the helm it would’ve been hard to achieve a serious film anyway. Tarantino gives a surprisingly decent performance and isn’t doomed to give the kind of acting that directors, singers and models usually give. Clooney steals the show completely and is fantastic as a relentlessly professional criminal/thief. This one really is NSFW, with profanity in almost every single sentence and themes of sexual violence, murder and general demonic possession throughout. The ending is one of the most fascinating play ons for a sequel I’ve seen in a film and slightly alters the tone from fun to actually quite creepy.
