From Dusk Till Dawn

Corrected entry: There is a gigantic store yard behind the Titty Twister, so why keep this pretty unnecessary stuff in a store room? Just so a few survivors of a blood fest can use it as weapons?

Correction: The stuff is there for the vampires to use, or to sell on the black market.


Corrected entry: Seth, Scott, and Kate flee down the hallway to the storage area, pursued by the bats all the way and barely closing the door behind them. But when Jacob goes down the hallway (backwards, so the cross faces the main room), all the bats have emptied out into the main bar instead of trying to break down the door or waiting for the prey to inevitably stick its head out. Quite convenient, since Jacob can only point his weapon one direction at a time. (01:23:40 - 01:25:10)


Correction: This is a character mistake, not a movie mistake. Besides, if the bats thought the humans had escaped or would be hiding there a while, they might choose to wait out in the room rather than one crowded hallway.

Corrected entry: In the first big battle between vampires and human beings, the barkeeper attacks Sex Machine. The pistol attached to the belt pops out and fires off several rounds driving the barkeeper backwards. But you never actually see bulletholes exploding on the barkeeper's chest. (01:01:55)

Correction: Bullet entry wounds (other than shotguns and very large calibers) do not "explode" when they hit the body. This is a myth. A 9mm round for example with leave only a tiny hole on entry. The only evidence of the hit would be the blood from the wound.

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: 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 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.


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.

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.
