A group of friends head out to the dessert to look for a secret cache of gold that was hidden years ago by an evil miner. In their pursuit of this treasure, they run into the ghost of the miner, complete with pick axe and killing anyone who comes anywhere near him. Luckily you won't care as all the characters are annoying and unlikable.
The makeup on the miner is as bad as the cover makes it appear. The movie has cameo's by Richard Lynch, Karen Black, John Phillip Law, and Martin Kove.
The only amusing thing about the film is that the gold in the mine is already processed.
