The 10 part series, developed by Rodriguez, follows bank robbers Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona) and his violent, erratic brother, Richie Gecko (Zane Holtz).
On the run to Mexico, and wanted by Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Don Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia), the Gecko Brothers take former Pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his children hostage. Using the Fuller family RV to cross the border, chaos ensues when the group ends up at a strip club populated by vampires. With the law, the undead and some of Mexico’s most hardened criminals on their trail, the group must fight until dawn to get out alive.
Described as having “a healthy mix of sharp witty dialogue, bloody bursts of violence, vampires, and supernatural horror” the series deepens the tone and expands the storyline of the original film, adds new characters and backstories and explores the Mesoamerican mythology behind the creatures inside the club.
