A motley band of archeologists sets out to locate an ancient cave sacred to the Yuma Indian tribe. All is not as it seems. It soon becomes apparent that the lead archeologist, Peter, played by Richard Hatch (the former Battlestar Gallactica heartthrob, not the Survivor contestant) is out to loot the cave of its artifacts assisted by two “students” who are in reality hired thugs. Only two female members of the group, a Native American guide and a cave-writing expert, have been duped into participating. The looters find the cave and treasure only to disturb the “unseen evil” force which then stalks the group for the remainder of the movie. “Unseen” is, perhaps, a bit of a misnomer in that the evil force has a fair amount of screen time and does away with members of the band amid heavy doses of blood and profanity. Perhaps this is a science fiction movie. Perhaps it is a movie about Native American mysticism. Perhaps it is a good, old fashioned wild animal flick. What it is not is good. Other than the sighting of Hatch and a bit part role by Robbie Rist (Oliver in later Brady Bunch episodes), this movie has little to recommend it.
