This is a paint by numbers slasher flick about a group of idiots who go looking for gold in a cursed mine. A gnarly old prospector comes back to life and jealously guards his loot by killing everyone in the area. This is cheap and extremely cheesy stuff with terribly hammy acting. All of the characters are obnoxious, the back story is laughably silly and most of the murders are cut aways with blood splashes on walls. It has that made for television sheen and the action is thoroughly predictable with no jumpy moments. It is amusingly naff in places but that's the best thing I can say about it and it's probably best avoided.

Gore - really cheap effects, mostly just blood splashes
