From Dusk till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money Reviews

This cut-rate sequel to Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's 1999 vampire/road-movie nightmare picture was directed by longtime Sam Raimi associate Scott Spiegel. Ex-convict Buck (Robert Patrick) is planning a big heist in Mexico with his pals C.W. (Muse Watson), Ray Bob (Brett Harrelson), Jesus (Raymond Cruz) and fugitive Luther (Duane Whitaker). While the others hide out in the isolated El Coyote motel, Luther makes an unwise detour to the Titty Twister roadhouse and meets vampire barkeep Razor Eddie (Danny Trejo), who turns him into a vampire. Luther in turn infects Jesus, and the unded crooks hatch a plan to betray Buck, C.W, and Ray Bob. The bank robbery turns into a variation on the vampire-siege sequence that took up most of the last third of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, pitting Buck against the police, headed by Sheriff Lawson (Bo Hopkins), on one front and an ever-growing hoard of blood thirsty monsters on the other. The combination of an uninvolving story and Spiegel's aggressively stylish direction make for a disappointing experience.
