At the rock hovel home of Abner Tasupi (George Clutesi), a 92-year-old high priest of the Masakai, tribal deputy Youngman Duran (Nick Mancuso) finds the old man trying to bring the world to an end by summoning Yewah, the monster god of the Masakai who guards the gates of life and death. Called to the Mamoa ranch, Duran is puzzling over the strange razor-sharp wounds and smell of ammonia coming from a dead horse when a helicopter soon arrives bearing Walker Chee (Stephen Macht), a wheeler-dealer politician from the neighboring Pahana tribe, accompanied by a veterinarian who underscores Duran's observations as he takes samples to determine what killed the animal. After going to see Anne Dillon (Kathryn Harrold), a health service nurse with whom he's romantically involved, Duran returns to Abner's shack to find the old man dead, his flesh stripped raw like that of the Mamoa ranch horse. Meanwhile, when Anne takes four foundation missionaries out on a camping trip, as they are gathered around an evening campfire, they hear a strange keening sound just before thousands of bats come swarming down upon them.
Shadow of the Hawk:
Jan-Michael Vincent (White Line Fever and TV's Airwolf) stars as Mike, the grandson of Native American shaman Old Man Hawk (Academy AwardÂ® nominee, Chief Dan George, 1970 Best Supporting Actor, Little Big Man) who is called back to his village to help defeat evil threatening the tribe. After years of living in the city and working in a business world altogether apart from his roots, Mike is contacted by a freelance reporter, Maureen (Marilyn Hassett, The Other Side of the Mountain), who was enlisted by Old Man Hawk to track his grandson. When Mike assents to returning with Maureen, they find that the village is beset by the evil spirit of an ancient sorceress, Dsonoqua (Marianne Jones, Where the Spirit Lives), animating beasts and objects and causing strange, deadly accidents. Only the heir of the tribe's shaman can stand in the way of the evil and protect his people, but will Mike be able to harness his power in time?
