From Dusk Till Dawn ★★★★★

🌺Murder and May-hem: Daily Horror Hunt #23 – May 2020💀
Day 30, Challenge 30: Watch a horror you've been meaning to rewatch, but never get around to.

So since I had to double up on the horror hunt, since I missed yesterday’s challenge, I did a double feature of Night of the Creeps and From Dusk Till Dawn. Let me tell you, that was a great way to start my day. 

This was a pretty seminal movie for me when I was younger. I first saw this around 2000-2001ish when I was really getting into both Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino movies. When I stumbled upon this, I couldn’t believe it. My two favorite directors had made a movie together! 

I remember this just blew my little 13 year old mind when I first saw it. I rented it all the time, listened to it with Rodriguez and Tarantino’s excellent and fun commentary multiple times, and was just obsessed with this. I just love everything about it. 

It’s one of those movies (even though I haven’t rewatched it in a few years) where I know every beat and every line. I mean, how do you not love a movie with George Clooney being the coolest he’s ever been, multiple Cheech Marins, vampire Danny Trejo, Fred Williamson telling Vietnam stories, Tom Savini as a guy named Sex Machine with a crotch gun, and Harvey Keitel as a “mean, motherfuckin’ servant of God.”

Oh and of course, Salma. Freakin’. Hayek. 

So, yeah, I still love this movie.
