    • Synopsis
    • It’s 1861 and several thousand acres of pristine land now known as Griffith Park in Los Angeles, California, is stolen from its owner, Don Antonio Feliz on his deathbed. An illegal will has been orchestrated by the Don’s best friend and a greedy prominent attorney. His blind niece, Petranilla, contests the will in court and is denied by a judge who has been bribed. She curses everyone involved, and over the next century and a half, the deadly curse slowly unfolds.
      It is now 2011 and Angelina Feliz, a direct descendant of the Don, along with her boyfriend, Derek Blake, both film students, discover an old map in a family heirloom music box. In order to translate the map which is written in an ancient Spanish dialect, they take it to a not-so-trustworthy language arts professor at their college. The map tells of a multimillion dollar treasure hidden in a Spanish well somewhere on the original estate.
      The hunt is on, but unfortunately, living deep in some caves on the old estate is a huge netherworld creature, a terrifying wolfish Barghest who is guarding the hidden fortune. All who come close meet with an untimely and very bloody death. It’s only when the one person it has been laying in wait for, is able to escape its fury and discover what the creature has been protecting, and for whom. But it’s not before all hell breaks loose as the wrath of Don Antonio Feliz and the curse of blind Petranilla explodes into a full rage!
