4 out of 5

Delivering everything you'd expect from a splatter-action horror bearing scriptwriter Quentin Tarantino's name, this in-your-face shocker from director Robert Rodriguez juggles sharp dialogue, excessive violence, great special effects and bad taste with stylish verve. Tarantino and George Clooney play two crooks heading south of the border, who take preacher Harvey Keitel's family hostage and end up under attack from bloodthirsty vampires, undead strippers and Hell's Angels when they hide out in a sleazy Mexican bar. Energetic film-making and engaging performances keep this hilarious gore-fest firing on all its raucously tongue-in-cheek cylinders.

Plot Summary

Black comedy action horror starring Harvey Keitel, George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino and Juliette Lewis. Fleeing the law, two murderous brothers kidnap a priest and his family, driving the priest's Winnebago south for a rendezvous at a lowlife bar in Mexico. Little do they know that the bar's staff and regulars hide a blood-drenched secret.
