From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series: Season Three Blu-ray Disc Set Review

Two years ago, acclaimed filmmaker Robert Rodriguez brought his hit cinamatic collaboration with fellow filmmaker and close friend Quentin Tarantino to the small screen with From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and in the process created an epic and expanded translation of the first film that in many ways because of the extra time allowed for character development, I find I like the TV series more than the classic film collaboration that inspired it. 

The talent involved is amazing and includes D.J. Cottons, Zane Holtz, Eliza Gonzalez, Jesse Garcia, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Emily Rios and Jake Busey. The third season features recurring guest stars like makeup master Tom Savini, Ans del la Reguera, Marko Zaror, Maurice Compte and Nicky Whelan.

The third season presents Amaru as the main antagonist, who possesses Kate (Madison Davenport). Seth and Richie Gecko are the antiheroes that go up against the Culebras, vampire and snake hybrids that run hidden empires in Texas and Mexico. 

Featuettes profiling the different demons and monsters of Xibalba, returning and new characters and more are included. The extra value features found within this three-disc set are detailed as follows:
