Two guys embark on a weekend trip to the desert in search
of an oasis with giant palm trees. It is rumored to be located in an area
called Corrizo Gorge, which is one hundred miles due east of San Diego. Just
before daybreak, they stop to have breakfast in the small desert town of
Ocotillo. The only people in the restaurant at that early hour are the sheriff
and the elderly woman proprietor.
The sheriff questions them on their presence in that area
at that early hour. Having nothing to hide, they explain to him what their
intentions are. The sheriff is more than happy to give them directions to
Corrizo Gorge. Upon the sheriff's departure, the owner makes them aware that
Corrizo Gorge is located on sacred Indian land, and rumored to be protected by
Indian gods. She also mentions a few accidents that had taken place there,
costing people their lives. This
information did not deter them from venturing into Corrizo Gorge, where their
worst nightmare begins to unfold.
They had promised their wives they would return home
Sunday night. When Monday morning arrives and their husbands still have not
made an appearance, the authorities are notified, and a full manhunt is
launched. A two-week search ends unsuccessfully in locating the two men. It is
then that the wives set out on their own to find them. Their search also turns
into a nightmare, and results in an inexplicable find.
My job as an aerospace design
engineer, led me to Singapore to work in a small aerospace company. The owner
of the company insisted my wife and I stay in a condo he owned on the
twenty-fifth floor of a condo complex, rent-free. We were unaware of the
horrible tragedy that took place there involving his wife, around six months
before we arrived. It wasn’t long before inexplicable things began to occur,
letting us know our presence was not welcomed.
