This sounds like "Scalps" crossed with "The Blair Witch Project," but set in the desert:
Steel Web prepares Cinco de Mayo Massacre
San Diego, California (May 5, 2007) - Steel Web Studios is pleased to announce that pre-production has begun on " Cinco de Mayo Massacre ", our second feature film.
The tale of " Cinco de Mayo Massacre " unfolds as a group of college students become lost in the New Mexican desert on their way to a party. They stumble across a secret Native American burial site and unwittingly disturb an ancient Aztec spirit. Hell bent on revenge due to injustices from the past, the spirit embarks on a bloodthirsty rampage through the desert.
The film was originally conceived as a fictitious title for a scene in Steel Web Studios' short film " Mail Order Bride ". Soon after the release of the film, fans began to request that the concept actually be made into a movie.
The feature film is inspired by historic events and Latino folklore from the Southwestern United States. Rather than simply exploit the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo, the film will explore some of the darker parts of Spanish/American history, such as the conquest of the indigenous people in the name of religion, while attempting to represent the controversy surrounding the holiday itself.
" Cinco de Mayo Massacre " will be written and directed by David Quitmeyer, the creator of the notorious erotic horror film " Slaughter Disc ". David was born and raised in New Mexico, so Mexican, Hispanic and Indian cultures have a heavy influence on him through out his life.
Steel Web Studios is currently seeking distributors, investors, cast and crew for " Cinco de Mayo Massacre ". Curious individuals may visit the official website for more information: http://www.cincodemayomassacre.com
