Death Valley: The Revenge of Bloody Bill

Is this a sequel or something? Death Valley: The Revenge of Bloody Bill plays out as if we already know who Bloody Bill is, why he wants revenge and how he commands an army of zombies. I mean, we’re treated to a few flashbacks and whatnot… but it all feels like a summary from a previous film.

Anyway, the whole thing looks like it was filmed through a pair of aviator sunglasses. Although i suppose that’s because the movie is set in some magical Wild West ghost town where there’s a perpetual sunset… which is another plot point that’s just sort of glossed over.

As a fan of low-budget movies, i generally enjoy the crap churned out by The Asylum. And it’s always fun to see zombie films expand into other genres. But this one was just a little too scattershot for me.

Best Scene: The first appearance of Bloody Bill was pretty epic and featured a catchy little industrial-metal tune called “Bill Will Kill.

Worst Scene: The flashbacks were drenched in filters, fake scratches and all manner of digital nonsense. They were just too dark and almost unwatchable, which meant that you had focus on the lame, melodramatic voice-over instead.

Does Not Follow: I’ve seen horror films that feature camp counselors, high school sports teams and even spelunkers… but this may be the first to feature a debate team.

    I was under the impression that this was in some way related to “Bloody Bill Anderson”, one of the Irregular Forces that foght out west before/during/after the civil war. I think the gist of the film was that he came into the town to get revenge for the murder of his sister by townies. He comes in, wipes out the entire town, and is cursed. I think I had the misfortune to see this on syfy chanel.
