The Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon is a 2008 adventure sci-fi movie set in the Grand Canyon. The movie was due to be released in late November 2008 but the date was pushed back to December 20, 2008, due to unfinished filming.


In the late 19th century, a team of Smithsonian researchers have stumbled across a lost walled Aztec city guarded by a "great flying serpent of death." As days turn to weeks, Susan Jordan, the daughter of the professor leading the expedition, assembles a team to rescue her father and his colleagues from the clutches of the ancient Aztec warriors and their horrible serpent god.

The production for this film began in February 2008. Filming began on April 26, 2008 and ended on May 14, 2008, a 19-day stretch, in Kamloops, British Columbia and Thompson-Nicola Region, British Columbia.


The film's reception was generally poor receiving an average of 4 out of 10 stars on IMDb.[citation needed] Many[who?] blame this on the poor CGI, an incoherent storyline, and "d-grade" acting.[citation needed]
