Throughout From Dusk Till Dawn[]

In From Dusk Till Dawn, he is first seen using his codpiece revolver to scare off another patron when the latter brandishes a knife after Sex Machine swiped his beer. He then watches the show and witnesses the frenzy, killing some of the vampires, including Razor Charlie. After helping Seth, Frost and Jacob kill the remaining vampires, he began staking the dead bodies. He is then bitten by a former patron turned vampire and tries to hide his transformation from the others. He starts hearing voices inside his head telling him to kill the others. He then fully turns and bites Frost and Jacob. He then engages in a fight with Frost, which results in Sex Machine being thrown through the window, letting the vampire bats in. When the remaining survivors head out to fight, he attacks Seth. He is then beheaded by him and this results in him turning into a rat-like creature vampire until he is killed by Kate with a crossbow, causing him to explode.

Physical Appearance[]

Sex Machine wore all black clothing attire, with a leather jacket, sleeveless shirt and pants. He had messy, medium length black hair, a mustache and a small beard. He also had a gun holster on his crotch. After transforming into a vampire, he had sharp claws and a monstrous face. He then transformed into a rat like creature walking on two legs with sharp teeth.


Sex Machine was blunt, but friendly towards the survivors of the bar. He seemed to have a sense of humor to him as well. As he was discovering his vampire transformation, he was trying to hide it and after fully transforming, he becomes cold and uncaring towards the remaining survivors, becoming bloodthirsty and ruthless.
