Vampires, Texas rangers and pythons storm on to SBS 2 next month in the premiere of new ten-part series From Dusk Till Dawn, starting Tuesday July 1, 8:30pm on SBS 2.

Based on the cult classic film from Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, this supernatural crime saga is violent, unpredictable, and addictive.

The series follows bank robbers Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona) and his violent, erratic brother, Richie Gecko (Zane Holtz). On the run to Mexico, and wanted by Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Don Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia), the Gecko Brothers take former Pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his children hostage. Using the Fuller family RV to cross the border, chaos ensues when the group ends up at a strip club populated by vampires. With the law, the undead and some of Mexico’s most hardened criminals on their trail, the group must fight until dawn to get out alive.

With impressive special effects which are equal parts enthralling and unsettling, the series deepens the tone and expands the storyline of the original film, adds new characters and backstories and explores the Mesoamerican mythology behind the creatures inside the club.

From Dusk Till Dawn is frantic with a healthy mix of sharp witty dialogue, bloody bursts of violence, vampires, and supernatural horror.
