Audience Reviews for Death Valley
This is not much of a horror movie, though it does have some horrific elements including extreme violence and an off-camera rape. The story is one you've seen before. Shiny, happy people travel to desert for fun and debauchery (a rave), overstay welcome and get attacked by the locals (surprisingly NOT mutants in this case). These folks with no background in dealing with this sort of thing man up and give the biker gang from Hades a run for their money. Cornball, trashy stuff, but there are bits that have stayed with me even days later. And Genevieve Cortese helped make it worth my time as well.
Another one of those thriller movies where a group of pretty young things puts themselves in a stupidly reckless situation and then is shocked when they realize they've put their lives in danger. I only watched it because of Eric Christian Olsen and was surprised to see Mrs. Jared Padalecki (Genevieve Cortese) in it. Olsen is his sexiest when playing a serious role, so that ALMOST made up for it. The movie wasn't awful, it was just nothin' to celebrate. And in case you didn't know: if your friend invites you to a rave out in the middle of the desert while high off your @$$ on mescaline, JUST SAY NO.
neither great, nor horrible. i could see what the creators were going for, but never quite made it out of mediocrity. i enjoyed it, to a certain extent, but some scenes made me cringe. parts of the story weren't fleshed out or explained enough, and an unidentifiable something was missing. it's not a movie i'd watch more than once though, because it's not the kind of movie where you'd see new things upon a second viewing; the concepts that are lacking won't be there, no matter how many times you rewatch it. it wasn't bad enough to make me feel like i wasted my time, but it wasn't good enough for me to recommend to others. it was just "ok".
