From Dusk till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

MPAA Rating: R

A group of thieves planning a bank heist are turned into vicious vampires. With Robert Patrick, Duane Whitaker, Bo Hopkins, Muse Watson, Raymond Cruz, Brett Harrelson, James Parks, Danny Trejo and James Ryan. [1:28]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Sexual innuendo (including a reference to homosexuality). In several scenes, we see men watching a pornographic movie of an obviously nude man and woman having intercourse in various positions with thrusting and moaning (their faces and bare shoulders, arms and backs are visible). Twice we hear people moaning sexually; in one scene we see a man thrusting on top of a woman (his back and the top of his buttocks are visible and we briefly see her bare breast), and in the other scene we briefly see a scantily clad couple rolling around in a bed. A clothed woman straddles a man sitting on a couch, kissing him passionately; we briefly see his underwear as he gets up and buttons his pants. We see a woman's bare breasts, buttocks and back as she's showering, and we see her bare breasts in another scene. We see several scantily clad women dancing in a bar and a woman wearing a very short skirt and a cleavage-revealing shirt.

VIOLENCE/GORE 10 - Several people are impaled by knives, poles and a bull's horn; green goo, foam and blood pours out of their bodies and their flesh quickly decomposes. A man chokes a nude woman, pushes her into a mirror (we later see big shards of glass sticking in her bloody face) and decapitates her with a shard of glass (her head rolls into the bloody bathtub, and we see it there again in a later scene). A nude woman is attacked by bats in the shower and we see her bloody body lying in the bloody bathtub (her bare breasts and shoulders are visible); later we see bloody water overflowing onto the floor. A man is pushed onto a telephone pole hook; we see the hook coming out of his mouth and blood on his face and clothing. A very bloody man pulls a bullet out of his stomach (we hear squishy noises) and then falls to the ground (blood splatters as he hits). In one scene, lots of gunfire is exchanged and we hear screams; in several scenes, lots of people are shot -- sometimes repeatedly -- but we rarely see more than a few holes in their clothing before they fall to the ground. Many people are attacked by bats or bitten by vampires (we see lots of blood squirt on their clothing and nearby objects and bloody marks on their bodies). A man strangles another; a man wraps a cord around a woman's neck and pushes a fan's uncovered spinning blades toward her face as the scene ends. A man is thrown from a building and electrocuted by some wires, then falls onto a car. A man throws a knife into a man's leg and a man stabs another, then licks the bloody knife. We see many corpses, some decomposed and some with bloody bite marks all over them. A head is thrown at a wall and leaves a bloody mark. A few bats are shot; we see a few with bloody wounds and some flailing in puddles of blood. Many scuffles with many people thrown into walls, poles, cars and plate glass windows. A man hits one man with a parking meter and another with a street sign. Several cars explode and a man bursts into flames. A man squeezes another's crotch, a man is thrown over a fence by a bull and a man is nearly hit by a car.

PROFANITY 8 - About 26 F-words, lots of anatomical and scatological references (including one anatomical reference seen on a sign) and lots of mild obscenities and insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Vampirism, robbery, criminals.

MESSAGE - Men defeat vampires -- again.

Special Keywords: S6 - V10 - P8 - MPAAR

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
