The early years of the 20th century: Susan (Shannen Doherty) heads an expedition into the Grand Canyon, where her father (Duncan Fraser), an archeologist, has gone missing looking for some Aztec treasure. Once Susan's team - consisting among others of two scientists, bookish Thain (Michael Shanks) and adventurer Langford (JR Bourne), who fight over both the position of alpha male and over Susan, of Susan's father's selfish assistant (Heather Doerksen) and a clumsy reporter who'll die soon enough - have gotten into a secret valley some way, they find out that a tribe of Aztecs is still alive there and seems to have nothing better to do all day than to sacrifice people - and it turns out their human sacrifices are really necessary, since their mythical winged-serpent god Quetzalcoatl is very much real, and a regular monster, too, and he's got an appetite. Thing is, Susan's father is already lined up to be fed to the winged god ...

Soon, our heroes get into captivity, but somehow manage escape, free daddy and  - well, and are recaptured. And while adventurer Langford turns out to be a coward who's killed by the Aztecs when making a desperate escape attempt on his own, bookworm Thain uses all his knowledge to fake his own death at the sacrificial table and then defeat and kill Quetzalcoatl pretty much single-handedly. He is then made the Aztecs' new God, but ultimately manages get away with the others and get the girl - Susan - in the end.


Rather pointless made-for-TV horror-adventure that might have a certain charm because of its plot that's more reminiscent of a 1940's B-movie than anything else, but that said, a flat directorial effort, an at best mediocre cast and impersonal CGI effects see to it that this film as a whole remains less than memorable, just your typical TV-fodder.

By the way, don't watch this movie to learn anything about the Aztecs, the film presents nothing more than a distorted image of this Mexican tribe - who have in real life never settled anywhere near the Grand Canyon in the first place.
