365 Days- Day 61

movie: From Dusk till Dawn 3 Hangman's Daughter
starring: Michael Parks, Marco Leonardi
genre: Western
year: 1999/2000
format: DVD

plot: When an outlaw is saved from death by hanging, he escapes with the daughter of the hangman. While on the run, his gang rob a stage coach, and soon all involved find themselves stuck in the same saloon over night. What they learn is that the hangman's daughter is the princess in a long line of female vampires.

Personally, this is my favourite of the three films.  I have to wonder though if naming one of the main characters Johnny, and another John was suppose to be some sort of inside joke?
This is the prequel, set in the 1800's, and if you want to watch the story happen in order, you would watch this first. 
One of my favourite scenes, is a black and white dance. One of the vampires hypnotizes one of the main characters and we see this strange seduction done like a black and white silent film. It's only about a minute and a half scene but it lends to a sense of humour and comes off like a bit of a tribute to the 1922 version of Nosferatu.

My one criticism of this film is the use of modern style underwear on nearly all of the vampire hookers.

what do i think i learned from this film? You never know who you can really trust in the end, or where you're love will end up leading you. No matter how good your intentions are. And karma is a bitch.
