"As horror TV host Mr. Lobo says: "They're not bad movies, just misunderstood."
BLOODTHIRST has been getting a lot of negative horror fan website reviews, but those of us who made the movie think it's because it's not being looked at in the right way. It's a horror spoof, first of all, a throwback to the old schlocky monster movies of the 50's where half the fun was laughing at the film's shortcomings! There are a couple of good scares, some laughs and its okay for the whole family. So, please, lighten up and try it again! Thanks."
Don't waste your money!!!

"OMG dude this movie sucked bigtime!! "Bloodthirst" was about a stupid, bloodthirsty (duh)monster thing that drains blood from goats. The "Chupacabra" looked like a child in a pink/green rubber suit. It looked like it was filmed with a normal video camera, like a home movie. There were like 2 killings you actually SAW in the whole movie. I strained my eyes to watch the entire movie somehow, and afterward I felt like bashing it to pieces with a crowbar! I just returned it to the movie store instead, and got my precious money back. But seriously, if you see this movie on the shelf in any video store, no matter how low the price is, DON'T BUY IT!!!"
Did you hear something?...

"i couldnt believe this movie as it started. it was so bad i couldnt turn it off! i loved it! there was so much tongue in cheek i think you have to be intelligent to get it. (and im not insulting those who didnt like it) it wasnt about having good special effects, good god thats what hollywood is for. anytime now i hear "did you hear something?" i crack up. and the first guy to get "sucked" was wearing sheep pajamas and boots! come on, a farmer, wearing sheep pj's..... yes, the movie was out there but if you can handle that, watch it."
Bad, bad, bad!

"I'm probably not the best qualified to write a review of this film, because I haven't seen it. That is to say, I haven't seen all of it. I started to watch it, but I turned it off about half-way through because it simply got too stupid to bear. I'll try to explain at least as far as I got.Somewhere in Arizona in the foothills fo the Rockies, a sleepy town is being attacked by a bloodthirsty killer. Goats are turning up dead, drained of blood, and the locals are attributing the killings to the creature known as the chupacabra, the goatsucker. Soon, people being turning up dead, also drained of blood (hmmm, there's a surprise). This prompts to editor of a nearby paper to send a reporter to cover the story.Meanwhile, a prospector passing through town gets wind of a local who might have a map to an abandoned mine that is supposed to be laden with gold (who knows why no one has followed up on this before now?). As it turns out, the old man is a retired vampire hunter and the mine is not a mine, but a cave, the lair of the chupacabra. Do you see where this is heading?Enter the old gypsy woman, who explains to our heroine (the reporter) that the chupacabra is the pet of creatures from outer space, accidentally left behind on Earth. It is alone, frightened, and hungry. Yeah, okay. Right about here was when I decided that this film had lost any entertainment value, but I pressed on.The mayor, in a desperate bid for re-election, forms a posse consisting of the gypsy, the vampire hunter, and some others to hunt down the killer (this was his wife's idea), but the vampire hunter discovers the map to the creature's lair missing (it was sold to the prospector by his grandson to get the money to pay his family's rent). They head off anyway, trusting on Gramp's memory to lead them there, I guess. The grandson insists on going, of course. After all, it's his fault that the map is gone. I figure that's the last we'll see of them.When the corpse of one of the people attacked by the chupacabra rises from the morgue table, complete with extra-long canines and thirsting for blood, I turned it off. I couldn't watch any more. What could have been an entertaining film has degenerated into a poor excuse for a vampire flick.Overall, I can't recommend this film to anyone. The production values are poor, the actors seem like they're reading thier lines off of cue cards, and the special effects aren't. The creatue looks nothing like the monster shown on the cover (or for that matter, nothing like the chupacabras have been described in folklore). I can't begin to describe what a waste of celluloid this film was. It's something I might have expected and eve tolerated in the 1960s, but not in 2003."
