From Dusk Till Dawn Plot Synopsis:

After a bank heist in Abilene with several casualties, the bank robber Seth Gecko and his psychopath and rapist brother Richard Gecko continue their crime spree in a convenience store in the middle of the desert while heading to Mexico with a hostage. They decide to stop for a while in a low-budget motel. Meanwhile the former minister Jacob Fuller is traveling on vacation with his son Scott and his daughter Kate in a RV. Jacob lost his faith after the death of his beloved wife in a car accident and quit his position of pastor of his community and stops for the night in the same motel Seth and Richard are lodged. When Seth sees the recreational vehicle, he abducts Jacob and his family to help his brother and him to cross the Mexico border, promising to release them on the next morning. They head to the truck drivers and bikers bar Titty Twister where Seth will meet with his partner Carlos in the dawn. When they are watching the dancer Santanico Pandemonium, Seth and Richard fight with three bodyguards. But soon they discover that the bar is a coven of vampires and they need to fight until dawn to leave the place alive.

From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) Review

From Dusk Till Dawn deserves to be in the best vampire movies list because the second half of the horror film throws you into a mess of ancient vampires and the survivors must last through the night. Another reason, Salma Hayek delivers an extremely sexy dance scene in the film while holding a snake, every man knows this scene. George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino along with the rest of the cast deliver killer performances. The vampire costumes are done extremely well and are unique in many scenes. Of course Danny Trejo also makes an appearance as the bartender.

From Dusk Till Dawn is one badass film that Robert Rodriguez cooked up and will be giving birth to a TV series in 2014. The only thing that I wished they had changed was the slowness at the beginning of the movie. I watch the vampire film often but find myself skipping most of the beginning to get to the good vampire scenes.
