With the odds stacked greatly against them, the Fullers and Geckos team together in hopes of defeating the creatures of the night. After a string of robberies that left a river of blood in the Geckos' wake, the sadistic siblings head to Mexico to live the good life. Movie fans are often begging for Quentin Tarantino to make a horror movie, but we kind of already got one way back in 1996. Because I don't think you're worthy of human blood. In an early draft of Tarantino's script, the vampire queen's name was Blonde Death. It was commissioned in 1990 by makeup artist Roberto Kurtzman as a calling-card project that would show off his monster-movie makeup skills.

Tarantino of course co-wrote and starred in the Robert Rodriguez-directed From Dusk Till Dawn, which feels very much like, well, a Quentin Tarantino horror movie. To get over the border, they kidnap Jacob Fuller, a widowed preacher played by Harvey Keitel, and his two children, Kate Juliette Lewis and Scott Ernest Liu. In fact, Hayek didn't want the part either because she had a phobia about snakes.

One of the most memorable scenes in From Dusk Till Dawn saw a bikini-clad Salma Hayek dance around on stage as sexy snake-whisperer Santanico Pandemonium. Makeup artist Tom Savini and blaxploitation star Fred Williamson appear as allies against the vampires, and Cheech Marin fills three different roles. And from that dance, Quentin saw it and wrote me the part in From Dusk Till Dawn… where of course he makes me dance only for him. But when Rodriguez told her he was considering giving Madonna the role of the boa-wearing dancer, Hayek went to a therapist for two months to overcome her fear. Here you will find unforgettable moments, scenes and lines from all your favorite films. The Gecko brothers' reptilian name should have been a tip-off that Clooney's Seth and Tarantino's Richie would be fighting vampires. After a couple of drinks, they realize that they're not in a typical bar, as the entire place begins to teem with vicious, blood-sucking vampires.
