The mission has gone to Hell.
A gory monster movie titled Death Valley is on the way to Shudder for the holiday season, we’ve learned tonight, and it looks especially suited to fans of Resident Evil. Featuring a practical creature, this one looks to be ripped from the same cloth as the upcoming reboot Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, and you’ll see what I mean when you watch the trailer!
Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, announced today that it will release the original film Death Valley in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand on Thursday, December 9.
Written and directed by Matthew Ninaber (Psycho Goreman), who also appears as the frightening monster in the film, the adrenaline-fueled action horror stars his brother Jeremy Ninaber (Escape the Dark), Ethan Mitchell (Escape the Dark) and Kristen Kaster (If I Should Die).
When a secret experiment goes horribly wrong, bioengineer Dr. Chloe (Kaster) becomes trapped inside a secret underground facility. With only 24 hours before a fatal decontamination protocol destroys the entire lab, Chloe deploys an emergency distress signal before a terrifying creature (Matthew Ninaber) of unknown origin can consume what’s left of her.
Alerted by the distress beacon, battle-weary guns for hire, Marshall (Mitchell) and Beckett (Jeremy Ninaber) are commissioned to carry out a covert operation to extract the imprisoned scientist. Upon deployment, the team is ambushed by another heavily armed militia hell-bent on finding a way into the compound themselves.
Severely outnumbered, the mercenaries find entry to the bunker through an unsealed emergency hatch only to find themselves in a horrific fight for survival. With time and ammunition running out, the team must locate Dr. Chloe while also navigating the underground maze of corridors before they’re hunted down one by one.
Death Valley is produced by Black Fawn Films who also produced the Shudder original Vicious Fun. The film is executive produced by Matthew Ninaber, Ira Levy, Michael McGuigan and Patrick Ewald. The film is produced by Chad Archibald, Cody Calahan and Matthew Ninaber.
