Confession time: I hate horror films.
It probably has everything to do with the fact that my Pops traumatized me at the age of 6 by making me watch Night of the Living Dead with him and my little brother. Ironically, I don’t remember much of the movie — although the they’re coming for you, Barbara line will stick with me forever — I do distinctly recall the feeling of being scared. Feeling scared is not entertainment for me!
When Halloween season is here, I know people love to Netflix and chill watching scary movies. Although horror films get a hard pass from me, there is one movie on Netflix that I will endure by watching with my blanket partially covering my face and that movie is From Dusk Till Dawn.
Why would I want to watch a movie about a pair of criminals who sneak across the Mexican border, kidnap a preacher and his family in their RV and stake out in a topless bar filled with people who turn out to be vampires?
It has everything to do with Salma Hayek as Satanico Pandemonium. If you haven’t seen Salma hypnotically dance with a giant white snake on her shoulders, making Quentin Tarantino drink beer off the curve of her foot, you ain’t lived.
