He also plays the monster in the action-horror opus.

Shudder has announced a December 9 premiere date in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand for DEATH VALLEY. Written and directed by Matthew Ninaber, who played the title role in PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN, it stars Kristen Kaster, Ethan Mitchell and the director’s brother Jeremy Ninaber. The synopsis: “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 was produced by the genre specialists at Black Fawn Films, creators of VICIOUS FUN, ANTISOCIAL, THE OAK ROOM and others.
