"Death Valley" is by far one of my favorite 80's slasher flicks,
The plot is very believable and the acting is above par with actors such as Paul Le Mat'The Burning Bed',Catherine Hicks' Childs Play',Peter Billingsley 'A Christmas story' and Stephen McHattie who is perfect as the slasher.

A mother and son go to Death Valley with The mother's new boyfriend hoping that the son and her new Beau will make nice with each other. The boy is very inquisitive and nosy resulting in him getting too close for comfort to a Serial killer who's very handy with a switchblade.

It becomes a cat and Mouse game between the two all the while he is trying to get the adults to believe him.It isn't a gore fest the kills are good,effective and the action and suspense are superb.There is a little some comic relief in the form of an obese babysitter who manages to wrangle all the kids candy and food away from him,her question of the night "Are You Going To Eat That?" am delighted that this Gem is now on not just DVD but Blu Ray.
it's a 5 Star film.

I don't know about most people but I tend to like this 1 star movie for once. I think its great Its not boring at any time, and its not dull its just a good movie not scary. When it was released in 1982 it received horrible reviews. Thsi is Peter Billingsley's first movie he is the kid who is in the all time favorite christmas movie " A Christmas Story" as if like nobody knew that. It has a great cast though Paul lemat, the mother from Childs Play, The guy from the quaker oats commercials,and many more. Country western movie I like those kinds of movies when they go out of the city and film in the desert I just like the movie and its not shakespeare or anything the acting is just like any regular person would act a good movie though.

I don't know how the timing could be more perfect for Shout Factory to release the 1980's thriller "Death Valley" on Blu-ray. This is the film that introduced the world to little Peter "Ralphie" Billingsley of "A Christmas Story" fame. Is it destiny or great marketing foresight that brings this lesser-known gem to store shelves during the very season the actor is seen the most in?

"Death Valley" centers on a young boy named Billy who accidentally stumbles upon a murder scene while taking a road trip with his mother and her new boyfriend. He unknowingly picks up the only thing that can tie the killer to the location of the crime - a necklace dropped during the struggle with the victim. Billy's mother and her boyfriend attempt to bring the psychopath to justice before the murderer tracks the child down.

This is one of those forgotten films of the 1980s. It's not bad by any means. It just didn't make enough of an impact on moviegoers to grant it cult classic status. Many would consider it a slasher film and they have every right to. There are graphic scenes of blood and violence, but not enough to place it in a category with "Friday the 13th" or "Halloween."

The cast of "Death Valley" is relatively impressive in hindsight. Many of them hadn't hit their successful strides yet and were still on their journey to stardom. Catherine Hicks ("7th Heaven," "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home") plays Billy's mother. Veteran actor Edward Herrmann ("Gilmore Girls," "The Lost Boys") has a bit role as Billy's father. Wilfred Brimley ("The Firm," "Cocoon") plays the town sheriff.

The audio and video quality for this high-definition edition of "Death Valley" will thrill viewers.

I have search high and low for a new copy of this without spending a fortune. Nonetheless, I had to go with used for a small price. The reason I like this film is I remember seeing it when I was a young kid and I like the desert, out of cities movies. This is a great family vaction slash horror flick. The acting is not so great but the story and flow of the movie keeps you going. I hope to see this one come to DVD.

I saw this movie on TV many years ago and while it wasn't the scariest of horror shows, I thought the acting was great. The acting in this movie wasn't obviously acting -- the actors were natural and acted like anyone would act under the circumstances. Paul LeMat was great and was believable as a man who was trying too hard to get the son of a girlfriend to like him. Anyone who's dated a person with a young child would relate. The son was believable as a kid who wasn't particularly impressed with his mother's boyfriend, and a kid who was trying hard to not like the boyfriend, and a kid who would be perfectly happy if the boyfriend disappeared out of his and his mother's lives. A fun creep show.

Those were the innocent words of Billy to a madman who was intent on killing him! This movie was really good and I remember seeing it when I was in junior high school. I haven't seen it since and have been searching for the video for the longest time. Yeah, it's dated 80's fare, but IGNORE that! The storyline is cool and a small boy who is smart enough to outwit the killer time and again in ANY way possible. It was like playing cat and mouse. The line quoted in the title shows that Billy believes that this maniac is just "playing" with him, unaware that his life was in danger. When he DOES realize it in the movie, he has more wits than an adult!!! This movie was cool back then and I'm SO GLAD to add it to my movie collection! It is one of those RARE thrillers that do not show a bunch of blood, gore and just a tad of nudity. Also, the scenery was LOVELY!!!
