4.0 out of 5 stars Ambrose Bierce vs The Vampires March 29 2004
This third movie in the series goes back to the turn of the century (19th to 20th that is) and concerns author Ambrose Bierce who traveled to Mexico to aid in the revolution but was never heard from again (see the book The Old Gringo by Carlos Fuentes). In this version of history, Bierce runs into some vampires at a saloon that becomes the bar in the first movie.
Bierce is looking for Pancho Villa to offer his services. But on his way he runs into outlaws, highwaymen, would-be outlaws, posses, a half-breed, a Fuller brush man, and lots of vampires.
Several plots bring all of the characters to the vampire saloon. There we see that even drunk Bierce would have been a fine addition to the revolution. But the usual biting and bloodletting ensues and we discover that the hangman's daughter is an important figure for the vampire (although I wonder how the newly-converted brush salesman knows enough to announce that she has come).
Although this film follows the previous films in pitting outlaws against vampires, this one has a different feel due to the historical setting and characters. It also sets the stage for the later events of the first movie. Bierce is a wonderful character and very nicely portrayed. I will not tell you if his historical disappearance is due to vampires or not.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Third Entry In "Dusk" Series Feb. 15 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Third entry in "From Dusk Till Dawn" series is a prequel which has a violent outlaw escaping his execution at the hands of a ruthless hangman and taking off into the desert with his daughter. The two end up at the infamous bordello bar from the first "Dusk" film and it's vampire mayhem galore. This straight-to-video effort is actually very creative with both its direction and general story, not to mention some quality make-up effects from the KNB team. Featuring a strong cast for a video release which includes "Dusk Till Dawn" alumni Michael Parks and Danny Trejo, Rebecca Gayheart, Orlando Jones, and Temura Morrison, just to name a few, this sequel is actually far more solid than one might expect.

1.0 out of 5 stars How it all began Feb. 24 2014
Format:VHS Tape
Ever wonder about the origins of Santanico Pandemonium and the infamous brothel/bar infested with grotesque vampires?

No, honestly I didn't. "From Dusk Till Dawn" told me all I needed to know. But we got a prequel to that movie anyway. "From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter" seems to be a fairly standard "gritty" Western until the final third -- and then it morphs into a less funny, more bizarre clone of the original movie. And for reasons that escape me, it also adds Ambrose Bierce to the mix.

Bierce (Michael Parks) and a pair of newly-wedded missionaries are on their way to Mexico, but they are stopped by Johnny Madrid (Marco Leonardi) and his band of ruthless outlaws. Madrid recently escaped the local hangman (Temuera Morrison), and brought the hangman's beautiful daughter Esmerelda (Ara Celi) with him. Yes, he's falling in love with Esmerelda. Big shock.

After Madrid's gang robs the stagecoach, both groups eventually end up in the same location, a brothel/bar located far in the Mexican desert. Yes, it's THAT one. But Quixla (Sonia Braga), the seductive woman in charge, seems oddly interested in Esmerelda -- and when night falls, the party is attacked by the vampires that run the place.

"From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter" starts off as a very dark, gritty Western movie, mostly focusing on the clash between the cruel outlaws and the not-very-likable "good guys." But in the last third, it starts feeling really familiar -- we have sociopathic thieves, missionaries, an evil vampire queen, and some nameless chumps with "dead meat" tattooed on their faces.

Yes, it's basically a retread of the original "From Dusk Till Dawn," except it's in an old western setting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the beginning, just another vampire movie. July 26 2001
From dusk till dawn part 1 was such a good movie it had it all. To come back with one of the worst sequels ever made part 2, then have the guts to make another film is alot to do. I wouldn't have bought this if I knew what was on this. The film shouldn't even list special features because there is only one deleted scene that doesn't even make sense. The story is so stupid, this is not how it began this doesn't tell you anything about how the movie started. They are the same thing the vampires were allready there when the people entered the bar. It's just like from Dusk Till Dawn 1 except with different characters. The only thing the movie is showing you is the other people the vampires killed. If you like gore and vampires, you could get this but it's not worth it, get part 1.

4.0 out of 5 stars As B Movies Go This A Masterpiece! July 28 2003
Keep in mind this is a direct to video title and the third film in the Dusk Till Dawn trilogy. Now right off the bat that should tell you alot. Now with that said I have to put in a good word for the film because it is thorougly entertaining from beginning to end...A guilty pleasure to be sure. Do not be fooled. This is not high art and not even the best of either Rodriguez or Tarantino's work. But the film does stand on it's own as low budget entertainment ventures go and I highly recommend it. The second is just as good as well. Tons of action and gore. If you like this you should also seek out Legend of Phantom Rider a really oddity to be sure, but also quite surprising and entertaining.
