  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money, a gang of bank-robbing misfits heads to Mexico with plans of pulling off a million-dollar heist. Unfortunately, the gang crosses paths with a cranky vampire, and all but one soon develop a taste for blood.

DVD Picture:
The 1.85:1 DVD is not anamorphically enhanced. The stylized picture exhibits warm, slightly oversaturated hues. With much of the film taking place at night, shadow delineation could be better. Visual information is wanting in the darker scenes. Slight smearing is apparent, but the picture can also be nicely detailed with good sharpness. Edge enhancement can be a distraction, but pixelization is minor. (Suzanne Hodges)
