From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)

Directed by
Robert Rodriguez

After Desperado, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino teamed up in this bizarre movie of two halves (road-kill à la Natural Born Killers and vampiric siege à la Night of the Living Dead). Trashy and vulgar, it's in-your-face, knowing fun. Tarantino and George Clooney play Richard and Seth Gecko, on the run to Mexico following a very bloody crime spree.

After Richard needlessly murders one hostage, the pair creep aboard the mobile home of the Rev Jacob Fuller (Harvey Keitel), who is looking for a new life with his two children after the death of his wife, and force him to take them over the border. The pair's destination is the Titty Twister, the raunchiest bar on Earth where anything goes, but as the sultry Santanico Pandemonium (Salma Hayek) completes her erotic snake dance by turning into a hideous monster, the blood feast starts and both the criminals and the hostages are forced to fight for their lives, ending up retreating to a small room from where they plan their final stand.

This film is widely regarded as the one that gave Clooney credibility after a series of mis-starts in feature films. He is commanding in the central role, holding his own with Keitel, while Tarantino is suitably straightfaced as the demented, psychotic killer.
