In the wake of horrific incidents, Robert Rodriguez's exuberant vampire flick was banned for years.

The Big Picture Quentin Tarantino has been the most prominent cheerleader for cinematic violence, and he is no stranger to criticism when it comes to his graphic depictions of such. Even in films where he isn't sitting in the director's chair, Tarantino manages to catch controversy. He was merely an actor and screenwriter behind Robert Rodriguez' From Dusk Till Dawn, a film that was eventually banned in Ireland.

'From Dusk till Dawn's Violence Isn't That Realistic Under the lens of those who are enamored with movies in general, there is nothing ultra-violent about From Dusk till Dawn. One can argue that there is nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to the bloodshed in the second half of the picture. However, The Irish Film Institute has been notorious for its overtly strict guidelines when it comes to its film censorship.

Why Was 'From Dusk till Dawn' Banned in Ireland? On March 13, 1996, one of the most despicable crimes was committed in the Scottish town of Dunblane. Dressed in fatigues and armed with four guns, disgraced scout leader Thomas Hamilton went into the local primary school and started shooting. 16 children and their teacher were killed before the criminal turned the gun on himself. The infamous Dunblane massacre led to gun reform in the United Kingdom, but the pain still remains to this day.
