Storyline

"Prequel" to the first From Dusk Till Dawn is set in Mexico in the early 1900's which begins with the escape of Johnny Madrid, a dangerous local outlaw, from the gallows who then kidnaps his hangman's beautiful daughter, Esmeralda, with a little help from Reece, a female outlaw from the U.S. With the hangman and a local posse on their trail, Johnny meets with his gang who all rob a stagecoach which contains American author Ambrose Bierce along with newlywed couple John and Mary Newlie. As night falls, all parties coincidently seek shelter in an isolated inn/whorehouse which is run by vampires led by the high priestess Quixtla who targets Esmeralda. Esmeralda is revealed to be the half-human, half-vampire princess Santanico Pandemonium, whom the vampires want as their heir in which all the humans must join forces if they are to survive the night from the vicious blood-suckers.

Better Than "Texas Blood Money"
7 February 2007 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

A prequel to Robert Rodriguez' great "From Dusk Till Dawn" of 1996, P.J. Pesce's "From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter" of 2000 is an enttertaining, but pretty silly flick and nothing near the original, but a lot better than the earlier sequel "From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money".

The story takes place in Mexico of the early 20th century (I guess around 1913), where the American writer and civil war veteran Ambrose Bierce (Michael Parks) has come to join Pancho Villa's revolutionary troops. While waiting for a stagecoach in a small Mexican town, Bierce witnesses bandit leader Johnny Madrid's escape from the gallows. When Madrid (Marco Leonardi) flees to the desert, he takes the hangman's beautiful daughter Esmeralda (Ara Celi) along with him. The infuriated hangman (Tamuera Morrison), of course, doesn't hesitate to track his arch enemy and his daughter, who wants to get away from her strict father and his severe methods. Bierce, Madrid and the hangman who is after him are all going into the same direction. What they don't know is that the bar/whorehouse, where they are about to take a rest in the middle of the desert is run by folks of the rather bloodthirsty kind.

"The Hangman's Daughter" resembles the original a lot more than the first sequel "Texas Blood Money", which had little to do with the Rodriguez/Tarantino film. Although it does in no way share the quality of "From Dusk Till Dawn", this movie is actually an acceptable prequel to he original. It is obvious that the whorehouse in the desert is the future 'Titty Twister', only almost a century earlier. The acting is nowhere near the original either, but again, the movie performances are a lot better than those in "Texas Blood Money". Michael Parks plays the lead very good, Marco Leonardi and Tamuera Morrison are believable enough in their roles and Rebecca Gayheart and Ara Celi are eye candy. The cast furthermore contains Danny Trejo, who was in "From Dusk Till Dawn" as well as in "Texas Blood Money". The amount of violence and gore is once again pretty high, and keeps the viewer entertained.

All things considered, "The Hangman's Daughter" is certainly not a worhy sequel to "From Dusk Till Dawn", but certainly a lot better than "Texas Blood Money" and and overall entertaining, if you keep your expectations low.
