From Dusk Tiil Dawn: Season Three (2016/EOne Blu-ray Set)



Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: B Episodes: B



Director Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, Desperado) continues his hit show From Dusk Tiil Dawn in its third season, which plays on the El Rey network, and is now finding its way onto Blu-ray disc. Inspired by the hit film directed by Rodriguez with a screenplay by Quentin Tarantino, the show essentially re-imagines (without the phony pretense we usually get with that concept) the first film in its first season and has since expanded upon the lore, telling more of what happens with the infamously deadly Gecko Brothers (D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz) who continue their Vampire Hunting spree through the desert wastelands.


Season 3 features a returning ensemble cast including D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Zane Holtz (Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Eiza Gonzalez, Jesse Garcia, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Emily Rios and Jake Busey.


New cast joining the third season are: Ana de la Reguera (Jane the Virgin) who will have a recurring role as Lord Venganza Verdugo, one of the seven remaining culebra Lords; Marko Zaror (Machete Kills) as Zolo, an Aztec warrior trained in Hell; Tom Savini (SFX Legend/From Dusk Till Dawn) as Burt, a retired demon hunter who smokes more medical marijuana than he sells; Maurice Compte (Breaking Bad) as Brasa, a mysterious Rasputin-like figure who takes on the Gecko Brothers; and Nicky Whelan (House of Lies).


10 episodes make up this season which include Head Games, La Reina, Protect and Serve, Fanglorious, Shady Glen, Strait Jacket, La Llorona, Rio Sangre, Matanzas, and Dark Side of the Sun.


Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and a great sounding DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless track (48kHz, 16-bit) the show simply looks fantastic on Blu-ray disc, vastly improving upon the original broadcast with commercial free and uncut episodes and no minor flaws. The show has a 'Western' like look with saturated colors that balance out in cinematic high contrast throughout. The show is shot to look like a movie and feels like one too, more than a television series.

While I would definitely watch the first two seasons before jumping into this one (reviews are elsewhere on this site for those other Seasons), From Dusk Tiil Dawn is more effective than True Blood and lovingly handles the property with plenty of excitement that will hook in Vampire fans from scene one.
