R | | Action, Crime, Horror
Two criminals and their hostages unknowingly seek temporary refuge in a truck stop populated by vampires, with chaotic results.
This marks the first time in a film scripted by Quentin Tarantino and that Harvey Keitel co-stars with him, that they're on opposite sides of the law. In Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Pulp Fiction (1994) they were both criminals. In this film, Tarantino is a criminal, and Keitel is a former preacher, although he still wears the clothes and a hat. Incidentally, they both wear glasses in this film.
Earl McGraw: Yes, sir.
Pete Bottoms: What do ya know?
Earl McGraw: Well, it's a hot goddam day
Seth Gecko's tattoos change between scenes. From when they are in the hotel, to when they are in the RV, there is a change in design. At first two parts of the tattoo are attached, in the RV, they are no longer attached.
Ernest Liu's opening credit is run off the screen by Seth and Richard's car.
Changes were made for the TV version, notably Titty Twister changed to Kitty Twister in dialogue and on the sign, and violence has been cut from when the strippers turn to vampires and when Seth beats up the door greeter.
