From Dusk Till Dawn
DIRECTOR: ROBERT RODRIGUEZ
CAST: GEORGE CLOONEY, SALMA HAYEK, HARVEY KEITEL, JULIETTE LEWIS, DANNY TREJO, TOM SAVINI
This Quentin Tarantino-scripted, Rodriguez-directed cult mashup prettily pulls off a brilliant, bizarre brokeback premise, beginning as a sweaty, sleazy 70s-style escaped-cons-on-the-lam action picture, then turning a 180 into vampire movie territory, while never along the way taking its foot off the pedal. George Clooney stars alongside a Murderer’s Row of movie tough guys, including Fred Williamson, John Saxon, Harvey Keitel, and Danny Trejo, though none are any match for the wiles of Salma Hayek and her hypnotic snake dance. Savini, who appears in the role of biker Sex Machine alongside fellow FX Hall of Famer Greg Nicotero, will be on hand to introduce, and let the gory times roll.
