This is Death Valley, where the flesh-hungry living dead wait, baking in the sun, thirsty for the blood of the living. But something else is hiding among the rocks, a secret even more gut-wrenching than the reanimated corpses of the dead which roam the sands!

But there is no escape from the living dead and no safe place to hide, not even the WIIC-TV studio where original NOTLD news anchorman Chuck Blaine has some difficult decisions to make: Should his heroic news crew continue their emergency public broadcasts, or run from the army of ghouls amassing outside the station? More importantly, should he continue to disseminate questionable government recommendations that could be luring viewers into inescapable death traps? Welcome back to the original characters of NOTLD including Johnny, Barbra and little Karen Cooper!
