Actually, I thought it was pretty cool, 22 March 2008
Author: Kristine (email@example.com) from Chicago, Illinois
When I saw the first From Dusk Till Dawn film, I thought it was very
cool and an awesome movie. Then I had the experience of the second From
Dusk Till Dawn movie, and oh, wow, I don't even wanna talk about it, it
wasn't horrible, but compared to the first From Dusk Till Dawn movie,
it was pretty bad. But when I saw the sequel for rent From Dusk Till
Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter, my boyfriend had said the third one
wasn't as bad, so I figured to give it a shot. Now despite some over
the top cheesiness, it was a good time to watch. We sometimes need the
gore, especially when it comes to vampires, I love the romantic vampire
films, but sometimes you need the good scare and gore. From Dusk Till
Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter will not disappoint on that part and I
think this was the better sequel.
Johnny is an outlaw/murderer who is about to be hanged, but is saved by an admirer, he saves the hangman's daughter, Esmerelda. Together they ride off, the admirer, a girl, Reece, who wants to learn his techniques, but she's stupid enough to go under his wing and pays for it. Another group, Ambrose, John, and Mary, are robbed and are left to the desert. But they all end up meeting in the same spot, at the bar where they are open from dusk until dawn with hungry vampires.
From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter is actually a very cool film. I was pretty impressed with how it was scary and gory, the story was decent enough. The only thing I thought was a little silly was when the vampire says to Mary "let's dance" or something like that, it was unbelievable a little out of character. But the last scene with the vampires was very cool and had some awesome deaths. But I won't give anything away. Just trust me, this is a good sequel.

All in all, quite an impressive piece of work., 15 March 2007
Author: cappados from London, England
After seeing the PATHETIC From Dusk Til Dawn 2, wasn't expecting much ,
but I was pleasantly surprised. I won't spoil the movie for anyone but
this story (which is actually the prequel to the excellent original
From Dusk Til Dawn) is well written and well directed. Great production
values, very interesting characters, decent plot, ASTONISHING action
And WHAT A CAST! Michael Parks is amazing as Ambrose Bierce, Temura Morrison is terrifying as the Hangman--and then you've got Marco Leonardi, Sonya Braga, Rebecca Gayheart, and Orlando Jones! All in all, quite an impressive piece of work.

A 100 times better than the previous movie., 6 October 2002
Author: John Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org) from Bedfordshire, England
You know, this film aint too bad at all! this is an entertaining horror
flick that returns to the quality of the first film and away from the pure
drivel of the second movie.
this is set in the past and we see the Vampire club as it was in the past.
Like the first movie in this we see no monster action for the first half and
pure blood sucking gore for the entire second half of the film. This not to
say the first half is poor because it isn't.
Again like the first movie the first half is different yet very watchable.
The acting is very good and the special affect are ok if not spectacular.The story is hardly ground breaking but at times this is very funny and in the moments when it was supposed to be, not like in the second movie when it was funny when they were trying to be serious! An above average horror that is hard not to like. 7 out of 10.

Better than #2, 21 January 2000
Author: F_Jenkins from la
At least this film was better than the second sequel to "From Dusk Till Dawn." The casting is a little better (whereas the second one had a poor cast, bad writing and direction) here, although it seems Michael Parks was still wasted, spending most of his time drunk, stumbling from one situation to the next. This film is basically a remake of the first, only situated in the 19th century. The problem with it is that you don't care about anyone in this film. In the first film, Clooney was interesting. No one here is. They're all unlikeable thugs and if they get killed by vampires, you really don't care. The direction here is far better than the second one. You can see the Rodriguez influence. There is humor in the film, references to other films, but unfortunately, they don't really fit. If this was a theatrical release, I'd have to say to miss it. But as a video, it's a good Friday night second feature.

if you HAVE to see these characters again, see this one, 13 November 2000
Author: captbruce from USA
I have a problem with the whole fact of Rodriguez and Tarantino doing a
sequel, let alone sequels, of a highly original, totally off-the-wall
like From Dusk Til Dawn. But where #2, "Texas Blood Money," was a waste
film, #3 "The Hangman's Daughter" is the ONLY one they should've
It tells the story of Salma Hayek's character in the first one and
has a plot, good acting, lasts just long enough and has enough content to
entertaining and not exhausting. I also want to add that Ara Celi is a
GREAT substitution for Salma cause she is just as FINE! :)
The movie does suffer from some of the hokey tricks that plagued Texas Blood Money and is campy, but that's half the appeal of these types of movies. They're not Shakespeare, they're to entertain...and bringing back Michael Parks was a stroke of genius and if you want to see how diverse an actor he is, watch this movie and the first moments of the original where he's featured. If you're jonezing to revisit some old friends at the Titty Twister saloon, rent this one and TOTALLY AVOID the second sequel.

Wants more than it delivers, 14 April 2007
Author: Fredrik Carlsson from Sweden
However, what it delivers isn't a little.
The prelude, if you will, actually lasts the majority of the movie. The horror doesn't start until very late. Until then it's a violent western tale to be told. And if there was time and money on this project I think it could have delivered a whole lot more.
Still doesn't measure up to the first movie, but was a whole lot better than the second one. Besides, Western/Vampire Horror Movie isn't something you see every day and it earns points just for that.
I definitely recommend this movie, it's not about to change your world, but it's different enough to be entertaining and imaginative enough to be interesting.

Better Than "Texas Blood Money", 7 February 2007
Author: Benjamin Gauss from Salzburg, Austria
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
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.

Why Ambrose Bierce?, 17 July 2009
Author: Gregorso from United States
What everyone seems to be missing is the significance of Ambrose
Bierce. He's a real 19th century author, and the film takes it's title
from one of his books. He's best known for the classic twist at the end
of "Occurance at Owl Creek Bridge". (It was made into an episode of the
original Twilight Zone.) This film hints a few times that a similar
twist will take place... but it never does. Why is there no payoff
after building up the Bierce character with so much historical detail?
Anyway, the film is not bad, which is surprising, considering that they
just rewrote the script from the first film into a Old Western setting.
Bierce's story "The Damned Thing" was produced as an episode of Showtime's "Masters of Horror."

An interesting second sequel. I was impressed., 14 April 2001
Author: Aphex97 from Nether Realm
After seeing the mediocre (at best) From Dusk Til Dawn 2, I was not
expecting much from the 2nd sequel, but I was pleasantly surprised. I won't
spoil the movie for anyone but this story (which is actually the prequel to
the excellent original From Dusk Til Dawn) is well written and well
directed. Good production values, very interesting and likeable characters,
decent plot, nice action sequences, and a few good twists make this one a
My rating: 7/10 - Good with few flaws.

Not as good as the first...but a hell of a lot better then the second!!!, 29 December 2000
Author: Nathan Egilsson (email@example.com)
After Watching From Dusk Till Dawn, i fell in love with the movie. I
couldn't wait till the sequels came out! I didn't even mind the fact that
they where being released to video, because the first one was so great, they
couldnt possibly screw up! That was until i saw From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas
Blood Money. There where only a few entertaining parts in that film, and
when i saw a few...i truley mean it! I thought they wouldnt even release the
third installment after how horrible the second one was. But luckily they
did! Hangmans Daughter is a far superior film compared to the Texas Blood
Money. Sure this film does not surpass its original, but i will amdit for a
sequel it is a good film. The cinematography is amazing, and the characters
are well acted. I think the story is very entertaining, and explains things
about the first film, which i thought was interesting! Its just the way this
film shot, that makes it diffrent from the first and especially the second!
And definatly as one person stated Rodriquze really did have his hands on
this film! Some of the style does remind you of his earlier
All in all, a good film, that doesn't surpass the first...but as a film on its own its a good film, with style! Rent it if you have some spare time! But just make sure you like From Dusk Till Dawn, or you might not enjoy this film as much!
