The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series, Season 1 (2014)




Starring: Wilmer Valderrama, Robert Patrick, D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Jesse Garcia, Eiza Gonzalez, Madison Devenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Jake Busey, Don Johnson


Premise:
Two brothers are being hunted by Texas Rangers as they try to escape the United States and make to a safe haven in Mexico. They take a family hostage and wait for their contact at a strip club with turns out to be full of vampires

My Take:
The first season is really just an extended version of the original movie.  Some background character depth is fleshed out for main participants, a couple new characters are added, and the overall story is tweaked a bit with a huge back story concerning the vampires added. For the majority of the series, I felt like I had seen this done before by a better cast and with story that wasn't so series. The last few episodes take it off in a new direction and it does leave it open for more exploration for more seasons. Maybe I will like further season better. For now, the show is mildly interesting.

Rating: In the middle
