Editing Details:
From Dusk Till Dawn is a film that splits many viewers some don’t like the direction it takes half way through the film and prefer the first half only. this edit aims to quicken the events that lead us to the Titty Twister were the action starts and adds an element to the fanedit that i think makes for a unique edit.

the documentary Full Tilt Boogie that came with the two disc dvd includes interviews with the cast many still in costume. this along with many other footage from the documentary has been added to the edit, thus adding a new dimension to the film as it now becomes a film that knows it’s a film.

the edit is a little rough around the edges (but then so are some of the best fanedits) and may not be to everyone’s liking. grindhouse effects have been added giving the edit a 70′s look.

Ha ha, one of my better drive-in experiences.
None of the, "Why'd you pick this film?" or 'I hope none of my friends see me with you."

The look of the film, aged, scratched, watched a thousand and one times by Joe Bob Briggs, was terrific. Desaturated colours were a boost, as well. Technical effects like those are easy to over blow, and he did not succumb.

All sound mixing was fine, though the volume was low overall.

I enjoyed the edit, but I'll differ from others about the extras and interviews. Every time I noticed the camera crew, or some insipid TV face, I was sucked straight out of the narrative. I didn't notice them as much as the film progressed, however.

Great job, and I must admit there were a couple trailers I fully intend to chase down.

This movie is perfect for the Grindhouse treatment IMO. It was made as an homage to the old drive-in movies and I think Tarantino and Rodriguez would get a kick out of knowing this was made.

The use of Full Tilt Boogie is quite inspired. At first it provided some good chuckles but as the edit progressed it brought a much deeper tone to it all. I especially loved the opening title sequence but there are many incredible moments throughout.

I will say that most of the interview footage brought me out of the experience a bit. I think I understand why they were included, but maybe it was a little overdone.

The technical aspects of this edit are excellent. All of Leeroy’s work to age the film and cut together different elements is done well.

The bloopers over the credits were a great touch. Hate to be nitpicky about it though but I couldn’t help but think it looked too digitally added.

Man, this edit was fun! Grindhouse and Tarantino come together like mustard and tuna. Pushing things along to the Titty Twister was Buddha-level righteous and wise; there’s still enough time to get to know our protagoners and care for them, if that’s what some of you do. What’s left is almost pure gonzoness.

I enjoyed the scattered interviews. Only the first one (apologies to Michael Parks) ran a bit long. But that’s otay, man, fully effin’ otay, because it was only a minor speed bump on the road to per. . . purdish. . . aw, fuck it.

Uberall, a joy to watch. The original movie’s bonkers inventiveness shines via Leeroy’s dragging it through the flour. Rating: 9.5 rounded up.

Postscript: The trailer for Boss N was touching and dear. It brought moisture to my eyes.
