Was this released theatrically?
It was great to come across this board because I figured that there was probably not more than a handful of people in the whole world who saw this thriller besides me. I nearly thought I imagined the whole thing because this movie is quite obscure! I only saw this once. What a relief there are others out there!!! I must have seen "Death Valley" when I was 12 or 13 years old. Now that was a long time ago! What I remenber, was watching this on cable over my cousin's house at 1:00 in the morning or something. I remember this being a very low budget film with that kid from "A Christmas Story." My recollection is this was not a top of the heap movie but it was on the suspenseful side, so I became engrossed. I can barely remember anything that happened except for some of the violent stuff. (The sheriff getting picked and possibly a babysitter getting killed?) Also, I thought there was a scene where the killer posed as a waiter at a diner or something, in order to intimidate the kid? Am I right about this scene? Wow, I remember this making me nervous back then. I'm sure today it wouldn't have that kind of effect on me since I've seen so many more thrillers since then and because it is probably a stinker. (Although I can still remember it, so it left some impression on me). I was wondering if this hit the theaters back then or went straight to video? I think it was the latter.share
