Pleasantly Surprised!By Phil from Saffron Walden, England , 05 Nov 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a film that I've been put off watching for some time now. The original was fantastic - a definite five-star all-time favorite. But the first sequel was absolute crap. How anyone could screw up the original concept so badly, I just don't understand, but they did. So I've not got round to watching this second sequel (actually a prequel, set over a hundred years before the first film) for some time now. However I'm glad I eventually did, because this film is much, much better than Texas Blood Money.
However it's still not quite as good as the original. The story is very similar, just in a western setting. So it misses out on the originality and impact of the first movie. It's got the feel of a remake, just with cowboys rather than escaped convicts, and is therefore somewhat predictable. Also the main characters aren't as developed as they were in the original or as well acted (but Clooney, Tarantino and Keitel would take some beating, so that's not too surprising). However this film is just as much fun as the first (the violence, gore and nudity certainly compare favorably), and with this sort of movie, that's what counts.
The disc itself wasn't anything to get excited about though. The picture and sound were OK on my laptop, but the only extra was one cut scene from the very end of the movie.
Overall, a good, fun, enjoyable film. Watch the original, watch this one, but stay well clear of the first sequel which is truly dire!

second best by farBy number1son (50 reviews) , 05 Dec 2013I have to agree with the first review on this page,the original is still by far the best,but this is so much better than the sequel Texas Blood Money.
Better than Texas Blood MoneyBy TheTaintedGeek (9 reviews) , 18 Feb 2013much better than no2 in my opinion, owing mainly to Rebecca Gayheart and Ara Celi featuring, but not up to the standard of the first movie.
Wondrous B-Movie Entertainment!By CaptainBeerfart (1 review) , 07 Jan 2013This is simply a sublime, ridiculous and hastily made rehash of the first movie minus the acting talent that made the original Dusk Til Dawn so watchable. If you're content with cartoon violence mixed with sheer silliness in the vein of the Evil Dead then wrap your eyes around this Western-tinted remake of Dusk til Dawn. In short, it is a party movie through and through - frenetic, high octane bad special effects with a terrible script to match. Dont think I'm putting it down, if you're in the right mood its a sweet time-waster that will satiate your desire for gore, energy and vampires. If anything it knows exactly what it is and I bet the cast and crew had a great time putting this nonsense to film. Put your brain in third gear, crack open the tequila and enjoy the ride!
"I'm a Vampire Baby"By Kusanagiguy (101 reviews) from London , 28 Jul 2012I don't know how they did it but Hangman's Daughter is quite a good little movie and a step up from part 2
While not quite the greatness of the first this really does feel a worthy prequel which has a better tone and story than Texas Blood Money.
Switching the period to a western was a great addition and really looked great considering the budget limitations of direct to video features.
Using Michael Parks in an extended role was a great move and he brought life to a brilliantly crafted character that shone among the other 2 dimensional cut outs.
The other upside was that the dusk till dawn bar had a greater impact on proceedings (as a plot point) unlike the sequel which cast it aside.
On the downside there were a couple of problems which stopped it from gaining a higher rating from myself. The comedy later on seems out of place as Hangman's daughter has a darker tone throughout and while some jokes worked the slapstick musical ques really were distracting.
There were also a few plot holes especially concerning Park's character who quickly slides into the background (and is defiantly missed when not onscreen) and a post credit sequence that confuses the film.
That aside this is not that bad
Vamp flick - doesn't suck so bad after allBy Locksley (13 reviews) , 10 Jul 2012You might appreciate this film more if you had seen the other two films first. Was quite good in all, lower budget in terms some of the costumes. Its a basic vamp flick, worth watching just the once, but time not wasted. It is at least okay, to rate it less isn't fair.. Combining the Wild West with vampires, some humour, and the added interest if you've watched the other two films.
