Mandrake is about an expedition group funded by a very rich guy named Henry to retrieve a dagger...little do they know...a great evil lurks in the jungle!! The film was surprisingly good...the acting was decent...CG was bearable and the storyline was original. It isn't your typical syfy for those reasons I'd say.
“Mandrake” follows a group of contracted archeologists working for a antiquities company that are hunting down treasure in Mexico. Yes, you read that right, they’re hunting treasure. They even have a map. Hold on, it gets stupider.

REVIEW: Mandrake is an above average adventure, fantasy, horror film from SyFy with an engaging cast, straightforward plot and an interesting monster to boot. The jungle locations keep the story plausible and the threat contained. The film benefits from multiple internal struggles and a corrupt benefactor that keeps causing trouble.
Mandrake, a syfy channel movie from 2010, is surprisingly one of the best horrors I've watched in a long time. It still presents and feels like a TV Movie but the writing is engaging and honestly it was just really fun. The kills are actually pretty intense. The gore factor for a TV movie is impressive.
