      Critics Consensus

      A pulpy crime drama/vampire film hybrid, From Dusk Till Dawn is an uneven but often deliriously enjoyable B-movie.

      Robert D Bring back more like this. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/10/24 Full Review Cota N An absolutely crazy gory, campy vampire flick with a stacked cast. The first half of the film which is practically a Tarantino crime film, is the stronger part of the film. The vampire side of the movie is still really fun but doesn't engage me as much as the first half which feels odd since that's the draw of the film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Jamie S This is like 2 movies in one. A very entertaining heist film in the first half and a excellent horror in the second. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Franky L This movie provides a glimpse at the master storytelling of Quinten Tarantino, and his ability to paint scenes, images and characters in both a disturbing, comedic and unrealistic light. With a star studded cast with Clooney, Hiyak, Tarantino himself, Keitel, Juliette Lewis, Danny Trejo, and of course Cheech Marin, it's a fast ride with blood, gore, vampires, and of course a "happy" ending. This is a clever take on the 70s B-movie genre, as only Tarantino and Rodguiguez can bring (Grindhouse forshadowing). Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Ryan B A very unique movie for the fact it completely subverts expectations & U-turns on you, & it's certainly memorable for it. However I did much prefer the 1st half of the movie, it was tense & well paced. The 2nd half however is entertaining but of course ridiculous. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/24 Full Review Marc Z A comedic horror romp written by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Robert Rodriguez-this is a lot of fun. The cast is all star. Tarantino, Clooney, and Keitel are the stars, and they are very good. The cast is littered with great stars like John Saxon, Kelly Preston, Cheech Marin, and the legendary Fred Williamson. The Direction and cinematography are really good. The movie has a unique and interesting look. What starts out as a 1970's type robbery and hostage film turns into a vampire film that makes for a really good time. The interplay between the seasoned Clooney, and the novice Tarantino, as actors is really the heart of the movie. Juliette Lewis is as likable as always as Keitel's fiesty daughter. There were sequels, but none can top this one. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jay Carr Boston Globe "From Dusk Till Dawn" answers the question about George Clooney, but raises a couple about Quentin Tarantino. Apr 27, 2018 Full Review David Hunter Hollywood Reporter [Robert] Rodriguez pushes the envelope but fails to make any lasting impression except revulsion at the spectacle of acclaimed independent filmmakers wasting their talents on such trash. Jan 19, 2018 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Imagine two movies plucked from opposite sides of the video store. Rated: B- Nov 18, 2008 Full Review Kristy Strouse Wonderfully Weird and Horrifying From Dusk Till Dawn has stylish direction coaxing its genre-bending narrative, with bouts of dark hilarity, all centered by the charismatic George Clooney. This vampire jaunt has a one-of-a-kind bite.  Oct 19, 2023 Full Review Alistair Lawrence Common Sense Media Despite all the talent involved, it's fair to say that this 1996 film is regarded as a cult favorite rather than a classic. Rated: 4/5 Nov 29, 2022 Full Review Michael Calleri Niagara Gazette The story is about the Gecko brothers, Clooney as Seth and Tarantino as Richie, two exceedingly dangerous bank robbers who are on a maniacal crime spree. The ultra-violent movie is pitch-perfect in its stylistic mayhem. Jul 24, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
