"El Chupacabra" review

El Chupacabra (2003)

Directed by Brennon Jones Paul Wynne
Writing credits Brennon Jones

Eric Alegria.... Navarro
Anthony 'Treach' Criss.... Dr. Goodspeed (as Treach)
Elina Madison.... Starlina

I have a prediction. A bold prediction. Someday, there will be a good Chupacabra movie. A monster legend of this magnitude deserves an exciting cinematic tribute. Well, at least a competent one. "El Chupacabra" is not that film.

So the Chupacabra attacks people and the world's most excitable dogcatcher decides to do something about it. There are some other characters that appear for no good reason. The movie concludes at the standard B-movie lab. All of the characters somehow end up there and mercifully end the movie.

This movie is painful. It will cause you physical pain. My stomach was turning over while watching this. Every single aspect of this movie is rotten. I cannot find one positive thing to say about it. Let me think...nope. Not a thing.

Thanks for the review. Thus far the only acceptable piece I've been able to find on Chupacabra was the Unsolved Mysteries segment they did. It's on youtube if you wanna catch it.

out of all the mythical, blood sucking creatures out there, the Chupacabra is almost certainly the sneakiest

Sneaky it may be but a good movie monster it is not. Well, at least as far as this exercise in torture is concerned.
