Las Vegas has multiple names and Sin City is one of the most notorious labels for this desert city. In a 24 hour world of any vice imaginable, the darkest stories are never too hard to find and one of these stories has made its world premiere at the Tucson Festival of Films.
The film is “Death In The Desert” and revolves around a darkly dysfunctional love triangle. Kim Davis, who is played by Shayla Beesley, becomes the live-in girlfriend of Ray Easler. Easler, who is played by Michael Madsen, is a legendary casino owner and he lives a drugged fueled Vegas life, with that mix Easler a rash decision to bury $20 million dollars in silver in the middle of the Nevada desert. As this is a difficult task, Easler hires on some help and this help comes in the form of Matt Duvall. Duvall, who is played by John Palladino, catches the eye of Kim and with that final piece, a perfect storm of destruction is unleashed.
As you can tell from this extended trailer, this film is deserving of the critical acclaim and will be an intense trip into the world of true crime.
“Death In The Desert” is based on the book written by Cathy Scott and was directed by Josh Evans, with John Steppling adapting this story for the big screen.
