A deliriously trashy, exuberantly vulgar, lavishly appointed exploitation picture, this weird combo of road-kill movie and martial-arts vampire gorefest is made to order for the stimulation of teenage boys.

On a mindless exploitation level this is pretty good, but on other levels it seems to make promises that it fails to deliver on.

A tired, humorless pastiche of various exploitation genres that is not the least bit imaginative in its campy deconstruction of conventions.

Rodriguez has a lot of fun dreaming up cool ways to kill people (he's making this his life's work), but he also gets something resembling a performance from Tarantino and transforms Clooney into a full-fledged movie star.

Mr. Rodriguez demonstrates his talents more clearly than ever -- he's visually inventive, quick-witted and a fabulous editor -- while still hampering himself with sophomoric material.

The picture shows what happens when a writer (Tarantino) and a director (Rodriguez) come together and reinforce each other's worst tendencies and misconceptions.

As the bloodsuckers attack our 'heroes' again and again, you feel like you're watching a video game -- from dusk to dawn.

It's great fun, but certainly not great art.

The movie, which treats you with contempt for even watching it, is a monument to its own lack of imagination.
