From Dusk Till Dawn: Salma Hayek dances to "After Dark"

Since this weekend is focused on the horror and fantasy films of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, including the latter’s 1996 film FROM DUSK TILL DAWN (scripted by Quentin Tarantino), we thought we should share this video clip of Salma Hayek as the vampire queen Santanico Pandemonium, dancing to the uber-cool song “After Dark.” This memorable sequence is one of the highlights of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN; the hypnotic cadence, moody melody, intriguing lyrics from  Tito and Tarantula’s performance add immeasurably to the obviously stunning spectacle of Hayek’s snake dance. Too bad all this set up only leads to Hayek’s character being summarily dispatched in the movie!
