Nicolas De Toth,
A group of archeological students head out into the desert on a dig for Indian artifacts, a practice which is forbidden both by their college faculty and the locals. Ignoring the warnings of a old Native American man, the group arrive at their destination and begin digging. Unbeknownst to them, their presence has angered an evil spirit, who will not allow the artifacts to ever leave the land. Written by

"Scalps" is a bloody Native American slasher with a nice supernatural angle.Six archeology students head to the desert to search for Native American artifacts.Despite the warnings of DJ,the students disturb the ancient Indian burial ground and unleash the vengeful spirit of Black Claw.After possessing Randy,Black Claw hunts down the others with an arsenal of stone-age weapons.Despite its crude cinematography and editing "Scalps" is an overlooked slasher with some nasty bits of gore.The throat slashing and scalping sequence truly made me squirm in my seat.A combination of desert landscapes and sinister soundtrack gives "Scalps" a raw and nihilistic atmosphere of fear and despair.Unofficial sequel "Demon Warrior" was made in 1988.
