El Chupacabra

"El Chupacabra" (2003, York Pictures, Inc., Urban Girl Productions, Hard Gore, Paul Wynne, Brennon Jones) is a low budget monster movie about the legendary blood sucking goat killer, El Chupacabra.

When a secret operation run by  Dr. Goodspeed (Anthony "Treach" Criss) accidentally sets the blood thirsty creature loose it is up to an animal control officer (Eric Alegria) who wants to be a cop, a fact they stress... a lot...., and the author of an unpopular book about the creature itself, (Elina Madison), to try to capture it. Unfortunately a rogue detective (Jerry Rodrguez) and his sycophantic partner are also on the scene.

Terrible acting, a plot consisting entirely of holes and some amateurish camera work is everything you expect from a low budget bargain-bin horror... However, this particular film is also boring.

Not clever and certainly not something I'd watch again, I wouldn't even recommend this as a film for a bad movie night.

The only positives the film offers are that the animal control officer is good looking and the creature make up is quite good for low budget...
