FROM DUSK TILL DAWN
starstarstarstar
It's NEAR DARK crossed with THE GETAWAY. No, it's EVIL DEAD 2: DEAD BY DAWN by way of THE WILD ANGELS. OK, got it: It's NATURAL BORN KILLERS meets VAMP -- you may not have seen the Grace Jones vampire-strip-joint picture, but you can bet writer/costar Quentin Tarantino has. Director Robert (DESPERADO) Rodriguez's film is a high-octane fun-house ride with only one speed: sick-making. The murderous Gecko brothers (George Clooney and Tarantino) hijack a preacher (Harvey Keitel), his kids (Ernest Liu and Juliette Lewis) and their RV for a trip to Mexico. At a roadside strip joint, they meet up with bloodsucking B-girls, gross special effects, a dynamite soundtrack and a trophy cast of '70s exploitation idols: Michael Parks, John Saxon, Fred Williamson, Cheech Marin and gleefully sleazy Tom Savini as a biker named Sex Machine, whose pistol-packing codpiece may be the last word in gun-as-phallus symbolism. If you're going to like it, you already know it. leave a comment
