A large ranch, in the area now known as Griffith Park in Los Angeles, belonged to Don Antonio Feliz in 1861. Don’s best friend and a greedy attorney stole the property by orchestrating an illegal will on Don’s deathbed.

After unsuccessfully contesting the will in court, Don’s blind niece, Petranilla, invokes a curse that remains to the present day…

Two young lovers are horribly mutilated and murdered in Griffith Park. Meanwhile, Angelina Feliz, a descendant of Don, finds a map showing a hidden treasure underneath the park. Unfortunately, it seems that a terrifying creature guards the treasure deep in a cave. Those who come close to the cave [Bronson Cave] meet an untimely, bloody death…

“Monster movies often live or die by their titular terrors – suffice to say that the less we see of this particular hairy scary, the better […] Even so, if you’re feeling less than discriminating and are in the mood to watch a modern-day ghost tale with a lycanthropic spin, plus a dollop of Southern Californian history on the side, this just might serve the turn.” Horror 101

” …the prosthetics work is okay. The creature isn’t spectacular but it isn’t painful to look at. Kind of an interesting beast, visually speaking. It isn’t really utilized very well, and all of the killing scenes look like gentle nuzzles […] The rest of my issues lie within the dialogue. It’s really bad.” Rooster Illusion Reviews
