See How From Dusk Till Dawn’s Skull Keeper Was Brought to Life


If you caught the two-part Season 3 premiere of “From Dusk Till Dawn” on El Rey Network this week, you saw some pretty incredible creature effects what with various demons being released from beneath Santanico’s temple when it was destroyed.  We’ve already met a couple of them, including the Skull Keeper, and in this new video executive producers Carlos Coto and Robert Rodriguez give us the inside scoop on how the KNB Effects team brought him to life.

“From Dusk Till Dawn” Season 3 features a returning ensemble including D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Eiza González, Jesse Garcia, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Emily Rios, and Jake Busey. New cast members joining the third season are Ana de la Reguera as Lord Venganza Verdugo, one of the seven remaining culebra Lords; Marko Zaror as Zolo, an Aztec warrior trained in Hell; Tom Savini as Burt, a retired demon hunter who smokes more medical marijuana than he sells; Maurice Compte as Brasa, a mysterious Rasputin-like figure who takes on the Gecko brothers; and Nicky Whelan, whose character will be revealed during the season.

“From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is produced by Miramax in association with Rodriguez International Pictures, FactoryMade Ventures, and Sugarcane Entertainment. Executive producers are Robert Rodriguez, showrunner Carlos Coto, writer Diego Gutierrez, FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa, and Miramax’s Zanne Devine and Daniel Pipski.

Be sure to tune in next week for Episode 3.03, “Protect and Serve,” directed by Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead).
