October is finally here and we can all embrace the things that go bump in the night. From executive producer Robert Rodriguez comes the first season of the original El Rey Network series, “From Dusk Till Dawn.”
Both the Blu-ray and DVD offerings give fans all 10 episodes from season one including episodes directed by Rodriguez and Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project). This supernatural series, based on the 1996 cult classic Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino film of the same name centers on bank robbers Seth and Richie Gecko, who are wanted by the authorities after a heist leaves several dead. Escaping across the Mexican border with a family of hostages, the Gecko brothers take a detour to a strip club that’s populated by bloodsucking creatures of the night.
There are no “sparkling” vampires, no soft pop music and unlike some other vampire shows/ films, there is plenty of blood feasting. Rodriguez knows how fans like their blood-suckers…sexy, seductive, vicious and ravenous.
The cast includes: D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Eiza Gonzalez, Robert Patrick, Wilmer Valderrama and Don Johnson. (Yes, THAT Don Johnson). Fans will be pleased to find that there are a bunch of bonus features including:
