Synopsis by Hal Erickson
We feel assured when veteran actor Gilbert Roland shows up in the prologue of the independently produced Treasure of Tayopa. Alas, this is the last we'll see of Roland until the epilogue. The rest of the film is Amateur Night in Old Mexico. The never-popular Rene Winters heads the cast as the leader of an expedition into the Mexican hills in search of gold. Another all-time favorite, Phil Trapani, puts a damper on the proceedings with a series of brutal murders. He is unfortunately stopped before he can bump off the producer and director of Treasure of Tayopa.
