Film / From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money

Go To

Sequel to From Dusk Till Dawn, released in 1999 and starring Robert Patrick, Duane Whitaker, Bo Hopkins, Muse Watson, Raymond Cruz, and Danny Trejo.

The film deals with a group of robbers planning a heist. One of them stumbles across the Titty Twister from the first film (it's implied this movie takes place sometime before it) and ends up getting bitten, spreading the vampirism to most of his fellow robbers, save for one who's forced to team up with the local sheriff to take them down.


This film provides examples of:

  • Convenient Eclipse: Inverted. Buck escapes the vampires into the sunlight... Then an eclipse happens. Note that the moon must have wanted the vampires to win; it literally comes racing across the sky then screeches to a halt when it reaches the proper position.
  • Dead Star Walking: Bruce Campbell received top billing, but not only does he die very quickly, his "death" is part of an in-film movie that a character is watching.
  • Death by Sex: Jesus and Lupe are vampirized by Luther after having sex.
  • I'm Melting!: Several of the vampire deaths, as the staked vampires' partially-fleshed skeletons remain intact while a nasty black fluid flows out of them, forming a puddle on the ground.
  • Improvised Cross: A vampire displays an aversion to the perpendicular lines of a vault door's hand wheel and later on a vampire attack is halted by closing the backdoors of an ambulance, which have the standard hospital red cross on them.

  • Kill ’Em All: By the end of the movie, Buck and Otis are the last survivors of the massacre.
  • Mercy Lead: In the end, Sheriff Otis gives Buck, a criminal, a headstart before he presumably calls for the backup.
  • Numbered Sequels
  • Porn Without Plot: Discussed by the robbers when they are staying at a motel, and pass time by watching porn on the cable. Buck only cares about the sex, while CW is an advocate at attempting to tell a story. This point-counterpoint provides the page quotes for both tropes.
  • Proscenium Reveal: The film opens with two people being attacked by a swarm of bats, which turns out to be a film watched by the main character CW.
  • Total Eclipse of the Plot: A solar eclipse that was briefly mentioned in the beginning of the film makes a bad situation even worse when it occurs during a vampire rampage.
  • You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: CW's profanity filled response when the moon races to cause a total eclipse of the sun, making containment of vampires in a bank during the day impossible.
