From dusk till dawn 3: Hangman's daughter
Threat advisory: Guarded - General risk of entertaining activities
From Quentin Tarantino the director of Pulp fiction and Robert Rodriguez the director of Desperado comes this thrilling horror prequel.
It is 100 years before the original film and Mexico is in the grip of a bandito massacre... infamous outlaw, Johnny Madrid, has just escaped the gallows, taking captive his hangman's sensuous daughter, Esmeralda.
As a frantic Madrid makes his way across Mexico's parched, unpopulated deserts, he also takes a stagecoach hostage - in it, a newlywed couple and famous American author Ambrose Bierce (a true-life character who actually went missing in Mexico, never to be heard from again). Together the group takes refuge for the night in an isolated whorehouse run by Quixtla, high priestess of vampires... and she's on the hunt for fresh meat. Once the sun goes down, the blood begins to flow. Featuring the same shotgun shooting style and hyperactive action as El mariachi and Desperado, this is one prequel that's better, bolder and bloodier than the original.

Since From dusk till dawn 3: Hangman's daughter takes place 100 years before the first one, the temple that will one day support the bar is smaller, or is covered in more sand. Likewise, the plot is a little more solid than its predecessor.
