The Gecko brothers, George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino, do have a little problem. The Texas police and the F.B.I. want them dead since they have killed 4 policemen while Seth was escaping. They kidnap Harvey Keitel and his children and hide in Keitel's motorhome in order to cross the mexican frontier. Now, they just have to meet Carlos, their mexican connection, in a bar near the highway. But there will be a slight problem to solve before dawn as the bar is filled with thirsty vampires dying for fresh blood.

A sleeper deserving to be rediscovered.
