Rating: Not Rated Stars: Jeremy Ninaber, Ethan Mitchell, Kristen Kaster Writer: Matthew Ninaber Director: Matthew Ninaber Distributor: Shudder Release Date: December 9, 2021 DEATH VALLEY has an odd title, considering its contents.

It’s taken a couple of weeks, but “Zombie Fights” is a step in the right direction. It’s still not laugh out loud funny, but the mixture of funny, serious and super-sized gore is starting to gel.
