  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Death Valley

    An enjoyable and permissible break from the routine, bodycount slasher films of its time is this film that balances family drama elements with a slasher nature, in which, annoying camp cannon-fodderish side characters get sliced up. These disparate genres never quite cohere tonally (it never has a fever pitch in tension) or dramatically (we are in melodrama here) but it's well-intentioned and engaging.
