Storyline

Archeologists Andy and Matty uncover a diary written by a member of Ponce de Leon's search party that provides clues to the location of the Fountain of Youth. They go to Florida to search for the site, but find themselves hounded by a slimy businessman out to profit from the spring and a voodoo acolyte searching for eternal life. Andy's search for clues brings him into contact with Dyanne, a local painter, who seems to know more about the spring than she is revealing. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

I do this for the first time, and am not an expert.
1 February 2001 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie recently on TV. This genre is attractive to me and this movie is, in my opinion, worth watching but with some serious flaws in a plot. The mob guy is pretty naive and his two "buddies" are more than hilarious and funny. However, it might add a new dimension to this film that was not intended in the first place. Shari Shattuck is gorgeous as always and maybe not used in all her potentials. Two archeologists are so-so with pretty good main character. For me, Virginia Watson's Palinya was revealing and surprisingly interesting character. She showed big ability for transformation of her role. She was my favourite character in this movie and it is pity that didn't see some more of her casts. She is my favourite one in this flick! Unlike her,that woodoo sorcerer was terrible and unconvincing. The guardian of the spring was kind of "mysterious" as it should be. And Clair Jordan's character was astoundingly unused. Pity.

All in all, interesting flick worth having on tape in private collection.
