Hoping for a cast commentary track

Love the cover artwork! Glad they stayed close to the poster. I heard the movie is bad but I don't care day one purchase for this one!
Stop the Replacing of original Studio Opening / Closing logos! These are becoming endangered and should be kept intact. They are part of film history.

DEATH VALLEY is actually my most-anticipated of the upcoming Shout Factory lineup. It's the only film in the series that hasn't had an official release since the VHS days (that I know of), which makes the release a tad bit more exciting IMO. I remember very little about the film except that it had a "DUEL/HITCHER" kind of vibe to it.

I can't believe this is getting a blu upgrade.

I always stopped to watch it when I caught it on the old AMC, or TNT... whatever it was aired on. For the longest time I didn't even know what it was or realize that the kid in it is Ralphie from A Christmas Story. I only remembered that a vintage car kept showing up mysteriously, a little, blonde kid was scared to death as he became interested in the car, and it took place in the desert. It was very haunting even when seen in fragments here and there, and it may be worth it on blu if it's cleaned up properly.

I'm interested.

This one had heavy rotation on HBO back in ~1983 or so... watched it a ton as a kid. It's long since removed, but someone uploaded a copy of their VHS to YouTube a couple of years back and I watched it again -- it still holds up pretty well.

Not an amazing flick or a classic or anything, but definitely not anything that deserved to become as obscure as it did. Glad to see it's getting a blu and I'll definitely be getting this to include in my Halloween movie marathons this year.

Then you wouldn't have liked the original poster either.

I do agree it looks like a blow up doll. But it's always looked like that.

I wish people were more specific when they label a film as "bad". Are the production values down the crapper? Actors stink? Dialogue laughable? Story doesn't make sense? What is it that you don't like about the film?

There's a classic HBO promo for "Death Valley" at the start of this reel.


Boy, have I not seen this in a while. I remember it having a solid cast, a unique enough setting for a slasher film and some suspenseful bits. If anything, it's strange this has finally been released in a proper presentation before 1988's "Jack's Back," another staple of cable which boasts the director of "Road House" and James Spader in dual roles.

Got mine in the mail this morning - not bad considering I'm in the UK right now. I can't wait to watch this tonight with the wife.
Incidentally, I mention it only in passing. I could always tell the judge it was a matter of confession...

Dvdtalk reviewed it recently and said the PQ was very impressive. Love to hear your thoughts about it.

Great disc. Naturally the transfer will not win any awards (due to source limitations) but it's a good, solid presentation (both on Blu and the bundled DVD), representative I'm sure of the original theatrical release.

Special features are confined to 4 trailers (Theatrical and TV spot for the title, bonus trailers for The Island and They Live) and an informative director's commentary.

Props again to Scream Factory for continuing to give proper due to these genre offerings, expanding on previous releases (Halloween II & III) or, as is the case with Death Valley, making them available for the first time in the digital marketplace. I haven't seen this one since it's early days on VHS in the UK and it's great to see it once again.
