Allan Quatermain and the Temple of Skulls is a 2008 direct-to-DVD adventure film created by American studio The Asylum. The film follows the adventures of explorer Allan Quatermain, and was filmed entirely on location in South Africa.[1]


The film is a mockbuster of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and while the film contains some elements similar to Crystal Skull (Quatermain himself resembles Indiana Jones on the DVD cover), the film itself is a loose adaptation of the novel King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard.


The story follows the adventurer Allan Quatermain, who has been recruited to lead a British-American expedition in search of a fabled treasure deep within unexplored Africa.

Throughout the film, Quatermain must avoid hidden dangers, violent natives and other unseen traps during their quest for the treasure of the Temple of Skulls, travelling by train, river and air to reach his goal, while being pursued by rival treasure-seekers and unfriendly natives who wish to sabotage his expedition.
