Movie Reviews

Laughably bad.

"I heard this one sucked. The Foywonder and Dr Gore tried to get that message thru, but it didn't work with me, as usual. So I rented it. And I'm sorry.

Some nutcase tries to transport two Chupacabras, a male and a female, to a facility in some gang-infested city in Mexico. At least, I think it's a gang-infested city in Mexico. Anyways, the male escapes and starts killing people.

It seems appearant to me that most of the film's budget went into making the two rubber Chupacabra suits, which are easily the best thing about this movie. But that isn't saying much. To say the script and direction are completely incoherant is an understatement. The acting isn't much better.

If you did something wrong and feel like you need to punish yourself, or if you want to torture someone, this is a good choice."
Not quite a z-movie

"El Chupacabra is by far, the worst movie I have seen in the last few years. Imagine a horror film where the "monster" looks like a retarded chimp that's been punched in the face a few too many times, and has fallen into a vat of green dye. In spite of the fact that it's less than 3 feet tall and moves like it's doing the potty dance in slow motion, it manages to kill several stupid humans that aren't smart enough to just kick it like a football and beat it with a stick. Sadly, the monster being on-screen is the highlight of this movie, as the acting is horrible. I rented this movie expecting a really bad, d-movie, and it exceeded my expectations by far."
This Was Really Bad!

"If you are reading this bad review and look at the others which are bad and still think "Hey, forget what they say, I bet it'll be a good movie," Don't count on it. When I read the reviews I wanted to see the film for myself first. when I saw it the reviews were correct. This sucked! All they did was talk, talk, talk ,talk,talk, talk, talk. And there was this stupid sentence which stayed right in the middle of the movie saying Property of Retarded Films or something like that. Anyway trust me. I know and I was in the same position you were in. This movie sucked. If you don't believe me rent or borrow it and see it yourself."

"Every once in a while, a movie comes along that is soooo...bad it's great. EL CHUPACABRA joins the list; this movie is funnier than many comedies I've viewed recently. The monster looks like a smurf and the acting is unbelievably bad. They stop sometimes in midstream and act like they're trying to remember their lines. They can't several of the doors to open. The sound and editing are atrocious. And the actors are just the worst I've seen, but their characters are given such dumb lines and behave so unbelivably, it just made me laugh and laugh and laugh. What a hoot!!!!"
