Five college students travel to a small Texas town to research the Legend of Blood Lake, an obscure folktale forged by events surrounding the massacre of a Comanche village by a company of Texas Rangers in the mid 1800s. Reports of people having disappeared from the area have mounted over the years, giving rise to incredible tales of evil spirits who protect a sacred cache of gold that lies beneath the surface of the lake. Upon their arrival, a crusty old bartender named Cyrus warns the students to mind their own business and go back home, but they are soon approached by a beautiful local girl named Dawn who offers to take them to the lake herself. It’s not long after they set up their camp on the shore of the lake that unusual things begin to occur. One by one, they begin to realize that the legend is much more than local folklore as they come face-to-face with their pasts and the legend itself.
