From Dusk Till Dawn

Corrected entry: After the first big battle in the Titty Twister, Richard Gecko transforms into a vampire. After a few lines of dialogue Richard is suddenly shown having another vampire face - more similar to the looks of his original character. A few seconds later he again has the gross vampire face.

Correction: Most vampire movies I have seen, the vampires can change their appearance at will. Richard doing this is only to confuse Seth. No mistake here.


Corrected entry: The holes in the walls where the light comes are already there, so as the sun comes up the sunlight will only come in on one side to start with. Also the time between the first ray of light and Seth and Kate leaving is not enough for outside to become that light after dawn.

Correction: Submitted by someone who has never got up to see the dawn. It gets very bright long before the sun is actually visible, I've seen it and taken pictures of it.


Corrected entry: At the end, after Seth hands Kate the money, and before she drives away (how did she get the motorhome keys, anyway) the money is no longer in her hands. Does she drop it and refuse to take the stolen money, or is it just another continuity screw-up? (01:41:20)

Correction: When you see Seth start to pull out, Kate's hands are below the picture frame for a second just as her right shoulder makes a little twist. It is entirely possible that she dropped the money bundle then.


Corrected entry: In the end Kate is shooting holes in the walls in order to let the sun shine in. Then, sunbeams come in from all sides. That´s impossible. The sun, especially in the morning, is shining in only one direction. (01:36:05)

Correction: The sunlight would still come in through holes on the other side of the building. As an obvious example, if you open the curtains in your house sunlight doesn't just come through the windows facing the sun.

Corrected entry: In Quentin Tarantino's original script Jacob kills Salma Hayek and saves Seth this way. But this was changed and Seth kills her himself. After the battle Jacob says something about that he rescued Seth although he could let him die. This makes no sense after the scene was changed. (01:11:45)

Correction: Jacob never says he saves Seth, but rather Seth says something like "If you had half a chance, you'd feed me to those f--kers." and Jacob replies "Why didn't I?" It technically makes sense, assuming we think Jacob means he didn't somehow get the vamps to kill Seth, but it is likely from the original script.

Corrected entry: In the climactic fight scene towards the end of the movie, Kate fights with a crossbow that has seven arrows. Throughout the entire scene, the bow always has seven arrows, as if she retrieved them after shooting them. (01:31:20)

Correction: It has seven arrows stored on top, but by the looks of it, it seems to have some sort of "arrow cartridge" that holds arrows underneath, which is where the arrows are "fed" in from.

Correction: He is never drinking liquor, he holds the burger from the time Seth puts it in his hand near the beginning of the scene all the way until Seth shoves him against the wall, when he drops it. We never see the burger enough to judge the bite size and placement.


Corrected entry: When Richie stabs the bartender multiple times with the knife he then slams it into the table, there is no blood on the knife, yet when Sex Machine (and the others) stake the vampires, blood is everywhere, and even projects over his shoulder.

Correction: There's definitely blood on it, though another mistake points out that the blood on the knife is a translucent green instead of red.


Corrected entry: After Salma Hayek's "routine!" Seth Gecko says, "Now that's what I call a f*@%#n' show!", watch when the angle changes to a slightly overhead one of the room, you clearly see him yell it again. Footage used from a different angle of the same shot?

Correction: No, he just repeats the same sentiment. The second time, the emphasis is slightly different and he is looking around more. Not a mistake.


Corrected entry: There is absolutely no way the Gecko brothers would make their way across the border. Especially when Jacob lies to the patrol men and finally admits there are actually three people on the Winnebago. Simply, no way.

Correction: Actually it looked pretty realistic. Having gone through checkpoints for many years, if you get some lazy border patrol guards, a vehicle search, such as the one shown, is very likely. And if you are lucky, some may not even do that.

Corrected entry: When Seth takes the stake to his brother, he hammers it in with a loaded pistol. This isn't a very good idea as he could have easily set it off and shot himself.

Morgan Thompson

Correction: This isn't a factual error - guns don't always go off when you use them as a hammer. And in real life, people do stupid things all the time. So the film is showing someone doing something stupid but getting away with it.


Corrected entry: When the Fuller family and Gecko brothers are trying to cross the border, we have Jacob talking to the guard to get across the border. While this is happening, we have Seth and Richie having an argument in the bathroom. With the volume of their argument, how can the guard not hear them? (00:38:00)


Correction: Outside noise. Traffic. Others talking. That can drown out talking inside the camper.


Corrected entry: Why, and how while we are at it, would the band explode on its own instead of attacking the survivors of the first big battle? That's pretty nonsensical.

Correction: Yeah its pretty believable that their is a biker bar with vampires and such but not believable that some of the vampires could explode themselves. Seriously it doesn't need to make sense. Unless there is some contradiction the film makes, the rules made in the film are fair game.

Continuity mistake: In the final battle, Jacob turns into a vampire and bites Scott, when Scott hits Jacob with the holy water bomb, Jacob backs away from Scott, when Jacob removes his mouth from Scott's neck, there is no blood on it, two cuts later, there is blood on Scott's neck.

Carlos: What? Were they psychos, or...?
Seth Gecko: They look like psychos? Is that what they looked like? They were vampires. Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits 'em. I don't give a fuck how crazy they are!

Trivia: When the group of main characters enters the Titty Twister, the barkeeper doesn't want to have them in the bar. The explanation is given in the original screenplay. The barkeeper feared that "normal tourists," unlike bikers and truckers, might be missed by friends or relatives.

Question: How did the big, black vampire die? I know that he melted after Harvey Keitel ran him through with the shotgun, but I didn't see anything used that would actually "kill" a vampire. There was no holy water, crosses, etc. used on him.

Answer: Well Keitel turned the shotgun into a cross. So he touched the cross and melted.
