From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series - Season One (2014/E1 Blu-ray Set)

Picture: A Sound: A Extras: A+ Episodes: A-

After breaking out of prison and pulling off a 30 million dollar heist, the Gecko brothers are making a run for the Mexican boarder with a Texas Ranger hot on their tails. Their fate becomes mixed up with the Fuller family when they steal them and their RV to cross the boarder, but when they stop at a strip club full of vampires they all work must together to survive ...or die.

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series - Season One (2014) dares to take the hit vampire film and make a cable TV series out of it. Seth (now played by DJ Cotrona) and Richie (now plated by Zane Holtz) become Texas most wanted after stealing 30 million and leaving a trail of dead Rangers. They are now chased by Ranger Gonzalez who's after them for revenge for the death of his partner. The Fuller family, a family who's lost their faith in god after the death of their mother, finds their faith in each other tested when their path crosses with the Geckos, but everything is placed on the back burner when they find themselves trapped in an ancient Aztec/Mayan temple full of snake/vampire people. Richie is somehow lead by visions from beautiful vampire succubus queen imprisoned for the last 500 years and requests him to 'free' her from the 9 Lords of the the night.

Mexican snake vampires, enough said. The series started out a bit slow, going through the characters back story for the first half of the season and kept on jumping back in time to explain all their stories, but things got more interesting in the second half, after all the characters end up at the temple. Ironically, the two killers become the anti heroes fighting against the evil blood suckers of the night. Impressive.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image across all the episodes is top rate, worthy of the theatrical film and has a consistent atmosphere, while the lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 mix on all the episodes may have outdone the film with exceptional, recording, mixing and overall sound design. Extras include a ton of stuff, including commentary with director and staff, behind the scenes, making of the characters, Q & A, trailers, gags, and much more.
