Product Description

B-movie mavens turned A-list genre fiends Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino teamed up in 1996 to take vampire gothic south of the border into spaghetti Western territory for the gory cult film From Dusk Till Dawn. The high-concept mix of southwestern criminals versus supernatural nasties proved too irresistible for either of the video-hound creators to allow it to remain dead (or undead, as the case may be), so they plotted and produced a pair of direct-to-video sequels. Tarantino takes a story credit on the first, a heist film coscripted and directed by Scott Speigel. A Mexican bank robbery helmed by drawling criminal Robert Patrick (Terminator 2) turns into a literal bloodbath when his crew are turned into hungry bloodsuckers. Speigel, a buddy of Sam Raimi, tops both Tarantino and Rodriguez for sheer cinematic acrobatics, putting his camera in the most absurd places (even from inside the mouth of a vampire chomping down on a victim) and driving the film with adrenaline-charged overkill, but despite some clever scenes and a hilarious Psycho spoof, it turns into another aggressively trashy latex-mask and rubber-bat gorefest as cops and robbers team up against the fanged gang. Bo Hopkins costars as the police detective dogging Patrick's trail. Bruce Campbell and Tiffani-Amber Thiessen make cameos in the jokey opening sequence and Speigel and fellow director Kevin Smith briefly appear as vampire bait. Bartender Danny Trejo is the only returning cast member. --Sean Axmaker

This is a sequel to From Dusk Till Dawn but it could just as easily be set before the first film. This one involves a bank robbery South of the border. The team is put together and they all head for a motel near the target. But one member is a little late and runs afoul of a vampire.
As a vampire, he joins the rest of the team and starts converting them to vampires. For some reason they continue with the bank robbery. This is not really explained and is not like the vampire mobsters in Innocent Blood.
In the end we have a final showdown when hordes of police arrive including one policeman who has a vendetta against the one thief not to get converted. Some of this action is rather interesting. At one point in the film there is a convenient solar eclipse. This one is odd as it totally blocks out the sun and the corona and then it lasts way too long. It would have been better to leave this one out.
Although this one is not quite as good as the original it is a rather good film. The characters are really quite interesting (both good guys and bad guys) and the film wraps up in a satisfying way (even if it has been used in countless films).

I recorded this on TV with my Tivo system because it said it was starring Bruce Campbell. It pissed me off when I found out that the only part with Bruce Campbell is a pointless scene in the beginning with Bruce and and the girl from Saved by the Bell. It was also directed by Sam Raimi afiliate Scott Spiegel. I liked the ideas with the camera movement and the scene near the end with the mustard gas and the main character with a cross. Over-all this is a pretty good movie. If it had some better writing and a higher budget it probably would have been better but I guess not. Buy it so you can support these guys.

WARNING: This movie does not really have anything to do with "From Dusk Till Dawn." The story is completely unrelated. There are no shared characters. Even the vampires aren't really the same.

So anyone expecting a bona fide sequel to the classic horror movie is going to be very disappointed. "From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money" is best appreciated as a movie in its own right -- a black comedy/buddy caper that just so happens to have vampires in it. It's fun whenever it's over-the-top and tongue-in-cheek, and rather tedious when it's serious.

Buck (Robert Patrick) receives a call from his old buddy Luther (Duane Whitaker), who has just escaped from prison. He wants to get the "old gang" back together at a small motel in Mexico, and Buck dutifully rounds up C.W. Niles (Muse Watson), Jesus (Raymond Cruz) and Ray Bob (Brett Harrelson). On their trail is Otis (Bo Hopkins), a Texas ranger searching for Luther.

But when Luther stops off at an oh-so-familiar bar (for about two minutes), he makes the mistake of telling the bartender (Danny Trejo) that he hit a giant bat with his car. Turns out both the bat AND the bartender are vampires. And when Luther finally turns up at the motel, he's rocking a pair of fangs himself -- and he quickly starts turning his old friends into bloodsuckers too.

"From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money" will massively disappoint anyone who expects an actual SEQUEL. This is just an unrelated story that just happens to be set in the same universe -- and if appreciated as a silly buddy-movie with vampires, it's actually pretty entertaining at times. Well, at least when focusing on the buddy parts.

Here's a few tips I gleaned from watching "FDTD 2" that I think should be born in mind by EVERY aspiring filmmaker:
1. Just because a camera angle or tricky move seems cool at the time does not mean you should actually use it. As soon as I saw the scene in this film shot from a rotating fan's point of view I knew I was in trouble. Take the time to make sure that camera placement and shot composition actually mean something and add something to the scene. If you can't come up with a good bit of justification, please just leave the damn camera alone.
2. When making a sequel it is advisable to actually bring something new to the story. Otherwise you are simply a hack marking time. As Joe Bob Briggs once said in regard to the first three "Friday the Thirteenth" films, "They made the same movie three times." "FDTD 2" played like a direct-to-video knock-off of the original. The plot was virtually the same with its gang of hoods running headlong into some real evil and getting caught with their pants down. Here's hoping the third entry in the series actually has something new to say.
3. Robert Patrick cannot carry a whole film by himself. I realize this is sure to fly in the face of every X-File-iac and James Cameron obsessed fan on the planet, but the man is a younger poorer man's version of Lance Henricksen and nothing more. Here his acting his negligible, his charm nonexistent and his part poorly written. Doomed from the start if you ask me.
4. In conclusion let me just say that if you intend to make a horror film you really do owe it to your audience to give them a few thrills along the way. This does not necessarily equate to dumping bucket after bucket of fluids and offal all over the characters. Rather, it means building an atmosphere of genuine tension and dread and setting the story's machinations a flying. If need be, watch "Texas Chainsaw", "Phantasm", "Dawn of the Dead" and the original cut of "The Exorcist" until it starts to sink in.
