Plot Summary:
"Prequel to the first From Dusk Till Dawn is set in Mexico in the early 1900's which begins with the escape of Johnny Madrid, a dangerous local outlaw, from the gallows who then kidnaps his hangman's beautiful daughter, Esmeralda, with a little help from Reece, a female outlaw from the U.S. With the hangman and a local posse on their trail, Johnny meets with his gang who all rob a stagecoach which contains American author Ambrose Bierce along with newlywed couble John and Mary Newlie. As night falls, all parties coindicently seek shelter in an isolated inn/whorehouse which is run by vampires led by the high priestess Quixtla who targets Esmeralda, since Esmeralda is revealed to be the half-human, half-vampire princess Santanico Pandemonium, whom the vampires want as their heir in which all the humans must join forces if they are to survive the night from the vicious blood-suckers."

The final part in the trilogy has the opposite effect on viewers, as it has a better story, but suffers from bad effects and basic aesthetics.

The story sees a number of characters cross paths before ending up at The Titty Twister, where they must set aside their differences and work together in order to survive the night.

Once again the film had a decent cast and a better story than part 2, but it never really goes anywhere, and the effects let it down a little. They even looked as though they hadn't been finished.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Both sequels are okay and watchable if you have nothing else to see, but this one is the better of the two.

Marco Leonardi plays a bandit who escapes the wrath of the dreaded hangman (Temuera Morrison- none too proud of the film, apparently) and takes the title character (sexy Ara Celi, in the Salma Hayek role) with him to a bar full of nutty blood-suckers.

They are joined by alcoholic writer Michael Parks, and bible-bashing newlyweds Rebecca Gayheart and Lennie Loften. Stealing every scene, a goofy, lisping bible salesman played Orlando Jones and the astonishing Sonia Braga (who is sexier than usual here, I've never found her attractive) as Celi's whore mother round out an entertaining B cast.

Decadent fun for the most part, this film is an improvement over the not-so-bad but not great second film, but still treads on far too familiar ground to be a classic.

It's probably a peg below the first film, but only slightly. Good location shooting and a fun music score as well. Thanks probably to co-screenwriter Robert Rodriguez this one has more interesting characters than the second film as well, only Gayheart and Loften missing out, though in the former's case, her inability to act in any way shape or form that does not grate enormously, is probably more to blame.

OVERALL SUMMARY
A fun little B-movie for those who like mindless violence, campy performances, and a film that drowns itself in all kinds of excess barely seen in these PG- times.
