I went into Scalps with the notion that I was going to hate it but wound up being pleasantly surprised by the film. This movie was far from perfect but I enjoyed it for the most part. First released in the United States in 1983 with one of Continental Video’s trademark “double feature” VHS and later released as an anniversary DVD.

The premise for this one is fairly simple. Several college kids taking archaeology classes together travel to an ancient Indian burial ground to search for artifacts.
