“As I Walk Through The Valley In The Shadow of Death.” Is the Shadow of Death a metaphor or could it be a real place? Three separate incidents – in 1914, 1948, and 1968 – in a valley near modern day Iraq seem to give credence to those who believe it’s real. In each instance, all occurring during a time of war, a group of soldiers disappears and is never heard from again. Satellite photos over the Valley displays images that seem to defy the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Firsthand accounts and video – previously never before having seen the light of day – from all three incidents portray remarkably consistent tales of men being mutilated and god awful shrieking that could only be from a demon or monster.
Now, two weeks ago, another photo taken over the area hints at some kind of new energy source the U.S. wants to mine. A small group of Special-Ops soldiers is sent into the Valley with two potential tools – the skull of John the Baptist and a shard from the actual cross on which Jesus was crucified. Led by John Raines, an efficient killer with a strong code of ethics and the only man to ever make it out of the Valley alive, they head into battle against a whole roster of inhuman creatures. Now they will find out once and for all if the road to Hell has just opened up.
