Our Score
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.

Summary

A crook and his unhinged brother take a preacher's family hostage and cross the border into Mexico. They head to a rough strip club to make a planned rendezvous with a third party - but they soon have to live on their wits when they realise that the establishment's staff are vampires. Horror, starring George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, Quentin Tarantino, Juliette Lewis and Salma Hayek.
