FROM DUSK TILL DAWN (1996 / Director: Robert Rodriguez)

About the movie: From Dusk Till Dawn follows the escape of Seth and Richie Gecko from the police in Texas, where Seth has freed Richie from prison and the two have robbed a bank, taken a teller hostage and killed a lot of people. On the way to Mexico, they blow up a liquor store, and at a motel, take the Fuller family and their motor home hostage for save passage through the border. Tensions rise as Jakob the father, a former priest, and his two children Kate and Scott, have to reluctantly support the gangsters. Once in Mexico they are to spend the night at the Titty Twister, a biker bar and strip club, until the next morning, where the Gecko brothers are to meet with Carlos whom they buy refuge from. It all goes sideways when the doors of the club shut and the strippers turn into blood thirsty vampires….
