So failure is what it takes to invoke vengeance by a humanoid cannibal?   Sounds like some teachers whose tutelage I had to survive.

But seriously, the standard mytho-poetic formula is that daemonic forces arise to wreak revenge for failure to respect taboos, failure to avoid trespassing on sacred grounds, failure to respect sacred objects.  I suggest that the definition of the expedition’s failure needs to be refocused and made more specific.

An inciting incident would give the story a starting point and add legitimacy to the creature’s vengeful tendencies.

E.g:
After disrupting the tomb of an ancient beast an archaeologist must fight a cannibalistic humanoid to get his family safely out of the Amazon.

Hope this helps.
