No Man's Land: The Rise of Reeker is one of the more infuriatingly bad films in the increasingly dubious Ghost House Underground Eight Film Collection. Things start off quite promisingly with a great little murder scene, but I wanted to hit something by the time the end credits rolled. Apparently, this is a sequel to another Dave Payne film called Reeker, which I haven't seen. All I know about the earlier film is that it can't possibly be as bad as this one. Writer/director Dave Payne basically gives the audience the middle finger with his awful ending to a film that was already devoid of all logic and continuity and weighted down with the most overdone and annoying of story and character clichés. I feel I'm being quite generous indeed in giving this film two stars.

Sheriff McAllister (Robert Pine) made his reputation by capturing the infamous Death Valley Drifter back in 1978 (in truth, he ran like a little girl while the killer basically arrested himself, but our "hero" chose not to disclose the true nature of the incident), and now he's turning over the sheriffing reins to his estranged son Harris (Michael Muhney). On his very last day, a trio of bank robbers come through his quiet little town in the middle of nowhere and stir up all kinds of trouble, including the return of "something else" that used to be the Death Valley Drifter (despite the fact this killer paid the ultimate price for his crimes long, long ago). Wouldn't you just know it?

HASH(0x9c0663fc) out of 5 stars Surprisingly good Oct. 30 2008
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Writer/director Dave Payne remakes his own earlier flick Reeker with No Man's Land: Rise of Reeker, brought to DVD under the newly-minted Ghost House Underground label. If you've already seen Reeker, there is nothing here with No Man's Land that will surprise you in the least. That being said, if you haven't, you'll find No Man's Land a surprisingly good and enjoyable horror flick that delivers the goods. The storyline revolves around a serial killer being put to death, claiming that his crimes were practice for his work in the next life. Turns out he wasn't kidding, when years later a group of strangers in the desert find themselves hunted down by a murderous, demonic force. To make matters worse, stranger things are occuring that you just have to see to believe. There is a certain degree of campiness to No Man's Land to be sure, but for its running time, this flick manages to satisfy in terms of gore, and even some laugh loud moments to boot. There's a delicious twist to be seen as well that is actually kind of inventive, but as said before, if you've seen the original Reeker, it won't be anything to come as a surprise. All in all, No Man's Land: Rise of Reeker is one of the gems of the Ghost House Underground lineup, and is worth seeing whether you enjoyed the old Reeker movie or are new to Dave Payne's creation.

HASH(0x9ba1160c) out of 5 stars This Movie Didn't Stink July 21 2011
By Slasher Diva\ Dayna Newman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I enjoyed No Man's Land (Rise Of The Reeker).
It had just enough humor and camp value,the story was very out there but interesting and fun.

imagine the smell of death greeting you before you meet your demise.
The gore effects were done brilliantly and quite abundantly.There were only a
couple of parts that left me scratching my head but the rest was fun slasher/scifi entertainment that I know I will watch again,so I bought the movie.

There are two really hot guys and two attractive ladies so everyone should be pleased with the scenery.I don't know why so many people are dogging this movie out.This is somewhat of a prequel to Reeker which I quite liked as well.If you want to see a good gory movie with a very different kind of killer. Watch this and even though it reeks it doesn't stink.

No Man's Land: The Rise of Reeker is one of the more infuriatingly bad films in the increasingly dubious Ghost House Underground Eight Film Collection.

Sheriff McAllister (Robert Pine) made his reputation by capturing the infamous Death Valley Drifter back in 1978 (in truth, he ran like a little girl while the killer basically arrested himself, but our "hero" chose not to disclose the true nature of the incident), and now he's turning over the sheriffing reins to his estranged son Harris (Michael Muhney). On his very last day, a trio of bank robbers come through his quiet little town in the middle of nowhere and stir up all kinds of trouble, including the return of "something else" that used to be the Death Valley Drifter (despite the fact this killer paid the ultimate price for his crimes long, long ago). Wouldn't you just know it? One of the bank robbers just so happened to have a relationship with a waitress at the little hole-in-the-wall restaurant that serves as the epicenter of the story - so, yes, we not only have the tired old father and son finally trying to get to know one another plot line, we are also treated to the dynamic of past lovers being forced back together in a crisis. From this, we somehow make the huge and unexplained leap to a soul-catcher of Indian legend terrorizing the whole community (which seems to consist of about seven people). The whole thing really jumps the shark when an invisible barrier enclosing the whole area is discovered - but the ridiculous plot twists don't stop there. As the story skips and jumps along, we're treated to random moments of utterly inane dialogue and increasingly unbelievable plot developments. I actually re-watched a five-minute segment toward the end thinking I must have dozed off at some point, but the problem turned out to be one completely of the writer/director's making and not a temporary loss of consciousness on my part. Now, in retrospect, I can only wish I had actually slept through some or all of this shipwreck of a movie.

Writer/director Dave Payne was apparently never quite sure just what kind of film he was making. It's horror for the most part, but the story also wanders off the plantation periodically to muddle its way through drama and black comedy. Any thoughts of taking the film even remotely seriously are dashed as soon as one character takes to wearing a garbage bag over his head. The acting also leaves much to be desired, with even familiar character actor Robert Pine turning in a rather pedestrian performance.

There are some decent titles in the Ghost House Underground Eight Film Collection (Dance of the Dead is the best of the bunch, but I also rather liked Room 205 and found The Substitute interesting), but No Man's Land is not one of them. There are just far too many problems with the whole production to make this a film worth seeing.
HASH(0x9c171c48) out of 5 stars This Movie REEKS.....of Greatness Oct. 22 2015
By Kane's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
No Man's Land: The Rise of Reeker is a prequel to the 2005 horror film, Reeker, produced by Ghost House Underground. The film opens with a prelude taking place sometime in 1970s Death Valley. A somewhat old man confronts a raggedy hitchhiker on the side of the road before mercilessly running him down with his car over and over again. Apparently this man has a reputation for killing people out in the desert and is known by police and citizens as the Death Valley Drifter.

Later that evening, the Drifter has a brief standoff with Sheriff Mcallister before turning himself in, claiming his work is done. The killer claims his killings were mere practice for his much bigger role in the afterlife and is soon put to death in the gas chamber not long after. Decades later, Mcallister is about to go into retirement and hand his duties over to his estranged son, Harris. However, while having breakfast at a diner somewhere in the desert, a trio of armed robbers pass through, take 2 young waitress' hostage, and get into a shootout with the 2 sheriffs which leads to a chain of turmoil and hectic events.

In the midst of this chaotic cat and mouse chase across the desert, all parties involved have no clue that they're being chased by the Drifter's sadistic and bloodthirsty spirit who now goes by the name Reeker. Suddenly they all find themselves trapped in Reeker's demented, supernatural world under an invisible dome where no one can get in or get out; and where no is quite alive or quite dead but somewhere in between. This unlikely set of characters must find a way to escape Reeker's world and the deathly stench that comes with it or become its next decaying inhabitants.

Overall: I can't begin to tell you how long this movie was on my to-watch list. I constantly slacked on buying it until I finally decided to get it. No Man's Land is a creepily good film. After the prelude, the film runs a bit slow for the next 20 minutes or so with a subplot of the sheriffs against the robbers. After that's over with it's bloody (pun intended) good action for the rest of the film on out. There are a few moments in the film that try to be comical but it kind of falls short on it. What I love about No Man's Land is the creepy atmosphere it brings to the screen. A situation where you feel sorry for the characters being in and wouldn't wish to be in it yourself. Imagine yourself stuck in a demonic spirit's world where you can't leave and no one can get in to help you. You won't know when or where this spirit will strike but in your final moments you'll get a whiff of the stench that death has to offer. For fans of gore, you'll love this movie as No Man's Land delivers in giving some of the bloodiest and brutal deaths possible. While they're not over-the-top, it's certainly enough to fill your appetite. The effects are great and they did an amazing job at making the Reeker creature look like a creepy, scary, dirty bada** of a monster. And on top of that it comes with a shocking twist ending that'll blow your mind just when you thought you had everything figured out. Overall, No Man's Land is a neat little film. After the first 20 minutes or so, it's completely good from there on out
