Chaos and Carnage get cozy with bad boys, bloodsuckers, and big trouble south of the border in the cult classic “From Dusk Till Dawn”.
This week, we head back to the mid-1990s with the Tarantino-written From Dusk Till Dawn, the only crime drama/vampire flick of its kind. Prepare for violence and mayhem, and Juliette Lewis!
Two criminals and their hostages unknowingly seek temporary refuge in a truck stop populated by vampires, with chaotic results.
Directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by Quentin Tarantino from a concept and story by special effects wizard and filmmaker Robert Kurtzman (Wishmaster), From Dusk Till Dawn is a 1996 American action horror film starring Harvey Keitel, George Clooney, Juliette Lewis (Yellowjackets), Tom Savini, Cheech Marin, Danny Trejo, and Tarantino himself. It also features an iconic performance from Salma Hayek. It received mixed reviews from critics, who described the film as well-made if overly violent. But audiences loved it, making it a box office hit and a cult classic. It also spawned a media franchise of sequel films, a video game, and other media adaptations.
Tune in to hear your hosts talk about small but memorable performances, the safety of cats, the happiness of snakes, Tarantino timelines, a bit of the ultra-violence, the definition of trashy fabulous, tequila vs. whiskey, men behaving badly, foot fetishes, and mutha trucking vampires.

This week, Carnage takes us to a Gothic mansion where a school for troubled but gifted young women is harboring dark secrets! Down A Dark Hall is a film adaptation of the Lois Duncan novel of the same name which follows the story of Kit, a teen girl whose parents are at their wits end due to her constant acting out. Her psychologist has seemingly found an answer to their problems in the form of the Blackmoor boarding school run by Madame Durant, who promises to draw out and develop Kit's latent talent. But her methods and motives are sinister indeed, and Kit soon finds that the beautiful halls are more oppressive than inspiring. She becomes a piano virtuoso practically overnight, though she and the other girls at the school suffer from missing time, obsessive devotion to their creative pursuits, losing touch with reality, voices that speak only to them, and ghastly apparitions that roam the halls at night. Will Kit be able to regain control of her life before it's too late, and how will she confront the dark forces conspiring to tear them all apart?!
