With the rampant success of the supernatural in entertainment, featuring the likes of vampires, werewolves, and more recently zombies, it was just a matter of time before a satire of the genre came to light. But rather than a movie by the Wayans family, we got MTV's 'Death Valley' (Mon., 10:30PM ET on MTV).
Every bit as gory and tense as its more serious targets in popular culture, 'Death Valley' is surprisingly entertaining. Dare I say it's even started developing characters that we actually care about. But, more importantly, it's making us laugh.
