Hangover in Death Valley is a roller coaster story like no other as two Las Vegas entertainers mysteriously find themselves in the town of El Dorado. Will they be eaten alive by the town's occupants or will they manage to escape? In this star studded story where blood drips and laughs are heard aloud in the most unusual action/horror film you will see this year. One thing's for sure, you'll die laughing.
Re-cut of 2012's HIGHWAY TO HELL a.k.a. ELDORADO. Just as bad but less of it.
For reasons I cannot begin to understand but which must have some Hollywood cultural or traditional basis of which I'm not aware, A-list actors are sometimes moved to lend their faces, talents and reputations to movies that are literally appalling. With 2 L's.
HANGOVER IN DEATH VALLEY is stunningly, startlingly and stupefyingly BAD. And I mean right up there with PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE horrendous. And yet, somehow, undeniably reputable actors participated in its creation. And by this I mean talents such as Daryl Hannah, Peter O'Toole, David Carradine, Jeff Fahey, Bridget Nielsen, Steve Gutenberg and Robert Llewellyn. I kid you not.
AND this bomb has been inflicted upon the unsuspecting public MORE than once. HANGOVER IN DEATH VALLEY is a re-cut of 2012's HIGHWAY TO HELL a.k.a. ELDORADO. The only "improvement" in the recut is a pairing down of the movie from 2 hours to 92 minutes. I suppose the good thing here is that the suffering experienced by watching this movie has been marginally reduced. We can all be thankful for that.
Poor old David Carradine. After killing himself accidentally in one of the most embarrassing ways imaginable, his personal version of hell is to be forced to keep making unwatchable movies AFTER his death. I'm serious. Check out his IMDb page. He died in 2009 and he's still making movies as of 2017. Ain't technology wonderful?
My best guess is that this stinker is reaching for a cult reputation. In considering how it is not only terrible, but STYLISTICALLY terrible, it may somehow accrue a cult following, and from that perspective there may be some value in it for twisted enthusiasts. Personally, no amount of acid could make me want to watch this movie.
It had a lot of cheesy nudity in it, so I guess there's that to look forward to if you plan to watch it.
