Critics Consensus

A bloody treat for fans of the film, From Dusk Till Dawn expands upon the vampiric lore while further fleshing out the Gecko Bros. and company, but some audiences may find this series to be a pale imitation that lacks the same bite.

Critic Reviews for From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (8)

Comparisons to its bigger-budget, higher-profile predecessor do the show few favors and the storytelling offers no surprises for those who know the tale. And so enjoyment of it becomes a matter of execution, which is a mixed bag.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Fans of the film will devour the TV series, and nonfans might give it a shot. Just be forewarned that it's not Blue Bloods. It's more like cold blood.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

If it's really going to be a much longer remake of the movie, we're about five hours away from seeing anything interesting. And then, when we get there, it'll be such a directionless, drawn-out spectacle of flashes and bangs.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Rodriguez likes to toy with audience expectations about violence... That's probably fine with Rodriguez because he knows he already has our attention.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

The movie's mashup of two genres worked precisely because it was so compact and silly, whereas the results of stretching it out to 10-plus episodes, as Rodriguez and company have done, can't help but seem pompous and flabby.

Top Critic

The occasionally snappy dialogue, twisted humor and cinematic direction -- all Rodriguez hallmarks -- bode well for the rest of the series.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Here's the problem that From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series has, and it's only gotten worse as the season's gone on: If you've seen the movie the show's based on, you know what's coming.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

There's a more pronounced supernatural edge to the show than the film ever had, which could be a great thing if Rodriguez and co. take the time to properly flesh out the extensive Aztec mythology that the original film merely hinted at.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Impotent filmmaking, lazy storytelling, and a spit in the face to the fans

Oct 1, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Lacks tension if you've seen the movie on which its based, but entertains nevertheless, and sets things up for what should be a fun ride to the gates of hell.

Oct 1, 2018 | Rating: 7.8/10 | Full Review…

Starting from right before the original movie's storyline gives them the time to get us used to the new faces of the Gecko brothers, and to give us the backstory that the film didn't have time to do anything more than hint at.

Oct 1, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The characters are engaging, the humor winning in its darkness. There was enough to appreciate in the first episode that it made me eager to see more.

Audience Reviews for From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series: Season 1

    Loved the series. Was kind of skeptical about at first cause I really love the movie. But once I got about 3 or 4 episode into it I really started to enjoy it. Was a little mad about them messing up who was older.
  • Feb 11, 2018
    Surprisingly better than I thought it would be and certainly better than the Sequels. The show pretty much expands every 30 minutes of the movie to 3-4 episodes. It lacks the punch of the original movie and is slow at times but all in all it is gory fun.
  • Nov 09, 2017
    Two brother, dark humor, blood, violence and sex. Richie Gecko is a brilliant insane bankrober and he is drawn to a kind of vampire girl that plays with his mind. Seth gecko ist out of prison and is trying hard to save his brother. This show got a lot to like, but the first season is an intro and tells the story of the gecko brothers in flashbacks bevor Richie change and the story get a new level.

    I must admit I have not seen the entire season, but so far it is awfully disappointing and even worse: it's incredibly boring. It tells the exact story as the movie - just much slower, less cool and with less charismatic actors - maybe because Hollywood's recipe is not only: uncreatively milking the old stuff another time, but doing so by casting all roles with much younger actors - hello, doing something allover again/ remaking something for a younger audience does not mean that you just use younger people - ridiculous and lazy and self-complacent. They should have added new stories, and I am not talking about lame bits like the ranger -duh. They could have/should have made more with the vampires, the background etc. - they have done a little bit, but that was not enough and bad, since the movie/plot is about vampires, not ridiculous weresnakes - a remake in a form of a TV show that nobody needed. Just watch the movie one more time. After that Rodriguez did not deliver anything good anymore. One positive thing: they have not added Nazis (yet) like Hollywood always does when it runs out of ideas - transparent, ridiculous, sad, when considering how well movies were in the 80ies and 90ies...

    If you like pulp fiction, please do watch! Refreshing show not formatted at all like most shows on TV.
  • Feb 13, 2016
    An excellent show my second Favorite Horror Based show right under The Walking Dead. The acting is on point, the creature effects are freaking amazing, the titty twister never looked as good, the suspense level is on a high level, Robert Rodriguez knows how to make a Great show. Its 100% worth 5 stars and a blue ray Pick up.

    Not a bad rewrite for tv with an entertaining cast and a familiar story. Obviously not as good as the film but not bad all the same
  • Oct 05, 2015
    Slick style by Robert Rodriguez makes this series a must-see for the original movie's followers... but might disappoint. It surely deepens the mythos of the From Dusk till Dawn universe, but feels like watching the same movie again. Because that's what it is, to begin with.
  • Oct 05, 2015
    Started very well but the standard proved difficult to maintain. A series-length adaptation of the movie of the same name. That was written by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Robert Rodriguez. Now it's just the Robert Rodriguez Show... Story is the same. Two criminal brothers, Richie and Seth Gecko are on the run from the law in Texas. They kidnap a man and his two children and cross the border into Mexico. There they end up at a bar where not everything is at it would seem... Like the movie, this started very well. While it was a crime-drama it was great: gritty, edgy and entertaining. Then, from a certain point it becomes a vampire/monster-drama and loses its edge. Becomes more a plain old action movie, with weird creatures. Still interesting enough, enough that I'll watch Season 2, but less compelling viewing now.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this series. Was unsure whether I would like a remake of the movie but it did it justice and the second series has started brightly too.
