From Dusk till Dawn probably needs no introduction, basically every visitor of this website should have heard about this cult movie. Due to the huge success, two direct-to-VHS-sequels were produced that lacked the quality of Robert Rodriguez' first moive. Since this year there also exists a TV series. From Dusk till Dawn: The Series is the first own production by Rodriguez' El Rey Networks.
Content-wise, the show more or less reenacts the first movie. However, over the course of the 10 episodes, the plot evolves to something more distinct. Two prominent scenes of the movies were borrowed, yet updated with a few new ideas. Also, the viewers get a deeper insight into the overall mythology, which makes the series much more than just a retelling of the movie. Thus, the series is very entertaining and has a lot to offer fore gorehounds around the globe.
Besides the broadcast on El Rey Network the episodes could also be watched "On Demand" on big providers such as Netflix, iTunes, or Amazon. And believe it or not - there are differences between the TV Version and the Online Version. The individual versions do not differ in terms of violence but in terms of nudity. Netflix & Co. show a few more naked women which - of course - were not shown on television.
This is a comparison between the censored TV broadcast and the uncensored On Demand Version.
Both differ in 1 scene. The TV Version is 1,46 sec longer.
In the TV Version, there is also the logo of the El Ray network founded by Rodriguez plus the piece of information "Original Series".
30:14 Minutes / 30:23 Minutes
One of Carlos' men drags along a young woman so that Richie has something to bite. In the TV Version, she is wearing a bra. In the Online Version, one gets to see her naked breasts. The cuts to Richie or Carlos in between slightly differ as well.
