i had never heard about this movie before, but i was a big Tarantino fan. So one day on comcast, there was a section called All Tarantino in the on demand section, and i saw From Dusk Till Dawn, and I had never heard of it so i started watching it. It was good, it had the same dark and twisted feel of any Tarantino movie, and then one hour into the movie, with only 30 minutes left into it, everyone turns into a vampire and everyone gets killed. If your looking for a terrible movie that will leave you saying what the F#@$, go ahead and watch this. If you take out its horrible choreography, bad acting(good actors but terrible acting... except for the Chinese kid, he just sucked straight up monkey a$$) the ridiculous weapons they use or how about VAMPIRES in general, this would be a good movie. Maybe this would have been a good movie if it was only being watched by 4 year old children the day it came out in theaters so they would actually get a scare out of this (and so they could explore ma$+urbating
