Jon (Robbie Allen) has felt like shit ever since his dad (Richard Atkins), owner of a powerful media corporation, has committed suicide, and he feels the demons that tortured his dad are now after him, so much so that he starts to have visions of pain and torture. Not knowing where to go, he turns to his ex Elisabeth (Riley Dandy), a famous art collector and dealer, who shows him some images of an of yet undiscovered artist, Jorge Escamilla (John Charles Meyer), which show images that correspond with the horrible visions Jon has to the t. And when Elisabeth tells him she goes to Peru, where Jorge lives in an Incan temple deep in the jungle, to fetch him to present him to the world as her client, Jon insists in going with her - and despite some reservations she says yes.

But traveling through the Peruvian is no walk through the park, as the area is infested with rebels, so besides their guide Shiniki (Branscombe Richmond), Jon and Elisabeth see themselves forced to take a bunch of mercenaries with them for protection - ande they don't regret it for sure. Eventually, they all do make it to the Incan temple - but Jorge is unwilling to come with them. Jon though learns something troubling about himself, that the visions he has are directly linked to Spanish Inquisitor Asturias (Vernon Wells), who committed atrocities (which also inspire Jorge's paintings) in the very temple they are, and it seems that there's something of the Inquisitors evil in him. And that really is a good thing when the rebels attack, and he does more than his fair share in fighting, succeeding even where the mercenaries fail. But that said, that same night, he also kills the whole mercenary gang ...

The next day, Jorge promises Elisabeth to come with her to the USA if she, Shiniki and Jon help him on an expedition to find El Dorado - the very place the Inquisitor in Jon's head was looking for as well. And thus the expedition turns dark before long ...

 

One can't watch this movie without marvelling at the beautiful and atmospheric locations (actually Maui, Hawaii, standing in for Peru) as well as all the cool action - but this is more than your standard adventure fare, basically because the film dares to make its protagonist also it's potential (if unwilling) villain, thus blurring the line between good and evil and breaking away from your typical jungle formula. And a very swift direction that favours mood over effect, and plenty of macabre imagery really help making this one a very cool piece of jungle action.
