From Dusk Till Dawn

From Dusk Till Dawn ★★★★

From Dusk to Dawn was a childhood staple of mine that felt super transgressive back then. A film that could stoke that youthful imagination and curiosity like no other. It just had all of those forbidden ingredients. The violence, nudity and overall controversial nature was pure junk food at a young age. Like a strong energy drink filled with doritos and skittles nothing could beat that level of indulgence!

Watching it now, many years later it still has lots to offer. Sure it feels slightly dated and goofy but it remains an important anomaly of genre cinema. An endless whirlwind of ambitious action sequences, gory violence and larger than life characters that provides loads of entertainment. And that whole second half is such a glorious blood bath of zany FX and crazy demon insanity. Always a fan of that human limbs guitar too! Hilarious.

A true time capsule of 90s nostalgia.
