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.
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.Read more ›
After 40 minutes of introducing and establishing characters, they all end up at a desert inn where we meet our favorite bar tender, Danny Trejo. At this point, anyone who has seen the first film knows that a blood orgy will ensue and it is just a matter of the outcome.
This production is better than the first sequel, but doesn't measure up to original. The dialouge contained some minor clever lines and on a whole a disappointment. The script suffers from attempting to imitate the first film using less quality stars and writers. My recommendation is to buy it as part of a multi-film DVD.
F-bomb, sex, nudity. 3 1/2 stars.
