I really don't what Tarantino does to a movie; they all consist of a bunch of Hollywood stereotypes, mixed with a simple, but coherent plot, stirred for two hours in Quality Gore, then baked at 300 degrees. I don't what the magic ingredient is, but it works. On this movie, Robert Rodriguez directs with a sure and bloody hand.

The film boasts a tarantino screenplay, and a central role in front of the cameras for him, as a psychotic, violent sex offender on a very short fuse. Luckily, (for us) we do not need to rely on him to defeat the vampires.

That responsibility falls to George Clooney, in his first starring role on the Big Screen, ably supported by an ensemble cast of fine actors.

The special effects are Buffy+ ... Vampires are not quietly 'dusted', they tend to explode, disintegrate, liquify or combust, according to mood. And in one case, attempting a second coming as a kind of vampire hound. But that was silly, and unnecessary. I rather hope I dreamt it.

Speial effects are good and plenty, and weaponry includes a 'pump-action crossbow' and a sort of pneumatic Mr Pointy; a kind of power hammer to drive a king-size stake through multiple vampire chests. Holy water-filled condoms (I think) were effective, but a tad on the tame side

This is undeniably a gore fest, but, like most (not all) of Tarantino's gore fests, it is well worth it. Bring your own sick bag!
