Yes, you read that right. The 1996 cult horror classic about Mexican vampires is being made into a TV series. The show premieres on March 11th on the El Rey Network, which was founded by Robert Rodriguez, director of the original movie. The cast includes Robert Patrick (Terminator 2) as Jacob Fuller, the role played by Harvey Keitel in the movie. Don Johnson will be playing Texas Ranger Earl McGraw. I’m not sure how they’re going to stretch this story out into a weekly series, but I’m anxious to check it out.
Here’s a trailer for the show.
For those who are unfamiliar with the original movie, here’s the trailer for that.
