Dutch Wilder and his crew are tasked with ambushing prospectors who’ve discovered gold in the uncharted Blackwood Forest. But first they must track the horse thief who killed one of their men. The “thief” is a Native American, herself a victim of barbaric frontier injustice. Coerced in-to accompanying the gang through the treacherous terrain, she leads them deeper into darkness where they’re attacked by the malevolent, ancient entity.
