‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"Great documentary full of behind-the-scenes moments with stars and crew."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com

‑ Chris Grunden, Film Journal International
"A colorful and entertaining look behind the scenes of From Dusk Till Dawn"
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Even better than the film they're making! a must-see!"
