To further celebrate the Season 2 kick-off, El Rey Network Founder Robert Rodriguez and Austin, Texas, Mayor Steve Adler officially proclaimed August 25, 2015, “From Dusk Till Dawn Day” during a ceremony at Troublemaker Studios where both seasons of the series, based on the 1996 cult classic film, were written, directed, and filmed for a whole new generation of fans.

Robert Rodriguez said: “Austin is my home, and I’m honored to have collaborated with the Austin creative community all these years making movies and television for the world to see. I’m so proud that ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ is Austin-made and that we can celebrate this day with the community.”

In addition to the incredible talent the production has brought to Austin, it is predominately powered by Austinites keeping within Rodriguez’s vision of supporting his local community. Mayor Adler said: “We are proud to be home to Robert Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios, his incredible El Rey Network, and of course, his iconic television original, ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,’ which has achieved cult status here in Austin and around the globe. Thank you to Robert, the cast, and the tremendously talented individuals who have brought this extraordinary story to life here in our own backyard.

About “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series Season 2:
Last year “FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES” premiered as El Rey Network/Miramax’s first scripted drama and drew critical acclaim for the reimagining of Robert Rodriguez’s cult classic film From Dusk Till Dawn. On August 25th at 9:00PM ET, the sophomore season of this fan-favorite, supernatural crime saga returns with 10 new episodes that expand the universe of the story. And on August 26th Entertainment One will begin to release each episode for purchase on all leading digital platforms.

Season One of “FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES” centered on bank robber Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona,) and his violent, unpredictable brother Richard “Richie” Gecko (Zane Holtz), who were on the run to Mexico when they encountered former pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his family, who were taken hostage. Using the family RV to cross the Border, chaos ensued when the group detoured to the Titty Twister, a strip club populated by culebras, snake-like ancient creatures who survive by drinking human blood. They were forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive.

In Season Two the show travels between Mexico and the edgy, tricked-out Texas of Robert Rodriguez. It also deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and dynamics. Our characters are all living in very separate worlds – Santánico Pandemonium (Eiza González) and Richie are outside Houston, doing their best Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate (Madison Davenport) are scraping by South of the Border; and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) is protecting his wife and young daughter in the suburbs. Carlos Madrigal (Wilmer Valderrama) and Scott Fuller (Brandon Soo-Hoo) emerge from the Titty Twister, changed men. They will all come together once again – this time facing off against an even bigger threat.

This season the cast is joined by Danny Trejo, who appeared in the original movie as Razor Charlie, and Esai Morales. Trejo plays The Regulator, a horrifying agent of evil who is summoned to perform a deadly errand, and Morales will appear in the role of Lord Amancio Malvado, a figure of terrifying cruelty and power who has a complicated and obsessive relationship with Santánico. They will also be joined by Briana Evigan, who does a turn as Sonja, an American expatriate working as a tattoo artist in a Mexican mercado. Jake Busey also resumes his guest starring role as Professor Aiden “Sex Machine” Tanner, and Demi Lovato makes a guest starring appearance.

Aside from Rodriguez, who directs the Season Two premiere and finale, directors who will be behind the camera this season include Edurado Sánchez (The Blair Witch Project), Alejandro Bruges (Juan of the Dead), Joe Menendez (Ladrón que roba a ladrón), and Dwight Little (Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers).

“FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES” is a Miramax production in association with Rodriguez International Pictures, FactoryMade Ventures, and Sugarcane Entertainment. Executive producers are Robert Rodriguez, showrunner Carlos Coto, Diego Gutierrez, FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa, and Miramax’s Zanne Devine and Daniel Pipski.

Get Weaponized – Enter Now to Win a Copy of this Dystopian Horror Novel

Published

on

A few days ago we brought you an exclusive except from Zac Thompson’s dystopian horror novel Weaponized, and with the book’s Halloween release date fast approaching, we’re back with one more reminder… and a chance for you to score a copy for yourself!

Weaponized was the winner of the 2016 Crypt TV horror fiction contest. For fans of Clive Barker, David Cronenberg, and films like It Follows, Weaponized is a Kafka-esque Eighties throwback horror novel that subverts the slasher genre with a refreshing take on body horror and the twisted, violent, burgeoning sexuality that underpins the genre. It is Thompson’s debut novel.

To enter for your chance to win, just send an email to contests@dreadcentral.com including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS along with “Weaponized” in your subject line.

This contest will end at 11:59 PM PT on October 20, 2017 – so act quickly! Note: This contest is open to U.S. residents only. By entering this contest, you are consenting to allow Dread Central and its subsidiaries use of your email address.

Also, don’t forget about the contest we’re co-sponsoring with Inkshares to find the next great horror authors – just a few more weeks remain!

Synopsis:
Truog Island is a desolate place where sexual activity is outlawed. There lives Trip Yash, bored out of his mind. That was, until he met Cron…

After a night of passion, Cron disappears, taking Trip’s virginity with him. A few days later Trip develops a rash on his hand that eventually blooms into a gun made from his own flesh. It’s not long before Trip becomes a living weapon locked in a battle against an ancient virus that threatens to ruin his island home. As his body continues to change, terrifying forces emerge with the power to weaponize the dead.

Weaponized is a nerve-shattering exploration of sexual identity and people’s strange relationship with tools of death. It is a Kafka-esque horror take on sexual orientation and sexually transmitted infections and how we villainize those who are different.
