Perhaps one of the weirdest vampire films ever, the movie starts off with a couple of escaped criminals, Seth and Ritchie Gecko (played by George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino), who're on the run from the law, as they try to get over the Mexican border.
With the police, FBI and Texas rangers closing in on them, they Hi-jack a camper van, belonging to former priest Jacob Fuller (Harvey Keitel) and his family and force them to drive them across to Mexico.
After bluffing their way through the border check-point, Seth then forces them to drive to a rowdy bar in the middle of nowehere called the Titty Twister, where they are to meet with some of his gangster chums. But what they don't know is the bar is actually a front for a vampire coven, who prey on unwary travellers. As they find out when they get into an argument with the management, and they suddenly sprout fangs.
Seth, Richie and Jacob's family then find themselves fighting for their lives, along with the other people in the bar, as they try to hold off the bloodsucking creatures long enough for Seth's Gangster buddies to turn up. Juliette Lewis also stars and look out for special appearances by horror actor John Saxon, SFX wizard Tom Savini, Danny Trejo and comedy actor Cheech Marin, who has 3 separate roles.
Not your typical Tarantino/Rodriguez film, being part road movie, part vampire film (which caught a lot of audiences off guard). If you're a fan of Tarantino's or Rodriguez's films and if you like vampire stuff, you'll probably love it. It's great fun, but it is a little unusual...
