Twilight vs From Dusk Till Dawn
By Joseph Mosselson | Tue, 13 Nov 2012

There’s no two ways about it: November is a good month for Twi-hards. In addition to the world premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, M-Net Movies is bringing you a feast of Twilight movies, beginning with Twilight on Friday 16 November at 19:15 on M-Net Movies Showcase and ending with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 on Sunday 18 November at 20:30 on M-Net Movies Premiere.

However those who like their vamps with a bit more bite shouldn’t feel neglected; we’ve got something nice and nasty lined up for you as well. On Saturday 17 November, M-Net Movies Showcase presents Robert Rodriguez’s grimy vampire thriller From Dusk Till Dawn, which takes place almost entirely in a biker bar populated by vampires without a moody pine tree or emotive lunar event in sight.

But just how does From Dusk Till Dawn stack up against Twilight? Here are a few comparisons:

Let’s just say that the eye-candy in From Dusk Till Dawn has a bit more of an edge (and often a lot less clothes).


The only thing the vamps in From Dusk Till Dawn are particularly sensitive too is the smell of blood. And once they get that scent, it’s safe to say that discussing their feelings is pretty low on their agenda.



Bad-ass leading men
Neck tats and revolvers vs lovingly tousled hair and whatever was going on with Jacob in the first movie. No contest really.


Bad-ass leading ladies

In Twilight, Bella is armed with a pout. In From Dusk Till Dawn, Kate Fuller is armed with a crossbow.


Bad-ass vampires
Let’s just say that the vampires in From Dusk Till Dawn don’t sparkle.


Catch Twilight, Fri 16 Nov at 19:15 on M-Net Movies Showcase and From Dusk Till Dawn, Sat 17 Nov at 23:15 on M-Net Movies Showcase.
