When From Dusk Till Dawn was turned into a television series, initially, I was unimpressed. It came across as a remake, extended cut off the original 1990s film that starred Salma Hayek. However, the series continued to have a following and by season two it evolved into a show worth watching.
Now, season three of the El Rey Network series is out on Blu-ray and it gets even more gory than ever. Seth (D.J. Cotrona) and Richie Gecko (Zane Holtz) continue to make their way through the hellish world of the culebras, a disgustingly disturbing vampire-snake hybrid empire that controls parts of Texas and Mexico. The two badass brothers are out of their element in this supernatural world but luckily with the vampire goddess, Santánico (Eiza González) they are able to navigate their way through a world that is not their own.
The 10-episode unrated series is even darker and more depraved on Blu-ray. I am a total chicken when it comes to horror flicks and shows and watching most of this through my fingers during the late morning as to avoid nightmares is a good indication of how terrified I am by From Dusk Till Dawn.
From Dusk Till Dawn is out today on Blu-ray.
