Synopsis

Bizarro vampire shocker directed by Robert 'Desperado' Rodriguez and written by Quentin Tarantino... who also co-stars with George Clooney as a pair of criminal brothers who kidnap a preacher (Harvey Keitel) and his children (including Juliette Lewis) - before finding themselves in a bar full of vampires. Salma Hayek is at her most snake-charmingly seductive as the club's main attraction. Bloody. Crazy.

Review

An exciting crime-and-vampire thriller taken at a breakneck pace and not taking itself seriously for a moment.

Quentin Tarantino, who wrote the demented script, and George Clooney star as the notorious Gecko brothers. Fleeing from the law in a mobile home with a hostage family (clergyman Harvey Keitel, daughter Juliette Lewis and adopted son Ernest Liu), they rendezvous in Mexico at a nightclub that houses a nest of vampires, headed by sultry Salma Hayek.

Mass battle is soon joined in a film that gets bloodier and more outrageous by the minute. Blood-hounds will love it.
