Editorial Reviews

For centuries, the legend of the flesh-eating Chupacabra lived on, but realevidence, other than small mammals torn to pieces, had been absent until now. A brilliant, cunning zoologist (Giancarlo Esposito, Ali), manages to capture the creature and sneak it aboard a cruise ship. But the murderous thirst of his prize catch cannot be quenched, and as the cruise becomes a ship of death, the captain (John Rhys-Davies, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) summons an heroic U.S. Marshal (Dylan Neal, 40 Daysand 40 Nights) to save them. But weapons will not be enough to destroy Chupacabra. They won't evencome close.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fozzie Bear In A Sleestak Mask Terrorizes A Cruise Ship January 16, 2006
"Chupacabra Terror" is an amazing movie. Note, please, that it isn't good, but is astounding for putting two things together that never (ever) belong together, even in graze-Z monster movies: a chupacabra and a cruise ship. As preposterous as that sounds, the awfulness of this film is extremely nuanced and can be viewed on many levels, all of them terrible.

This is a film where even the most inept viewer will be able to accurately predict exactly who survives in the first three minutes of the film. Unfortunately developments in the film become even easier to prognosticate in the remaining 85 minutes. The plot is basically that an insane scientist (a cryptozoologist) played by Giancarlo Esposito in full over-the-top Shatner mode captures the elusive Chupacabra, evidently played by Fozzie Bear in a Sleestak mask and swim fins judging from the realism of the effects, and brings it onto a cruise ship where it proceeds to walk on ceilings, jump around like a flea, and eat everyone in sight (as well as a very annoying Yorkshire Terrier).

The good guys are the Captain, played by the genuinely talented John Rhys-Davies, his daughter the shipboard Tae Bo instructor, played by the modestly cute Chelan Simmons, and a US Marshal, and poor man's Tom Cruise, Dylan Neal (they really needed Sam McCloud for his tracking skills). General pandemonium reigns in this tawdry and very unscary affair (the monster really does look like a silly puppet, but is actually a man in a rubber suit), and there are subplots to take our mind off the tension (or relieve the boredom, depending on your point of view). The most annoying subplot (by far) is about a smarmy thief who, while allegedly suave, does not remind anyone as much of James Bond (or even Peter Sellers) as much as Ralph Malph in drag.

3.0 out of 5 stars John Rhys-Davies, God Of B-Cinema May 16, 2005
You heard it hear first folks, John Rhys-Davies is the new god of B-Cinema. Not only has he appeared in the legendary "Sabertooth" and "Dragon Storm," but Rhys-Davies can now add "Chupacabra Terror" to his ever-growing list of SciFi channel schlock that is so terrible, it's actually fun to watch.

When this first appeared on SciFi Channel, I think it had a slightly different name. No matter, it's still the same cheese-matic cinema that I've grown to love. Not only does it feature a dude in a rubber suit, it also features natives scared of the beast, a man intent on capturing and studying the beast at no cost, and a slew of idiots on a boat intent on stopping the beast. Standard, unoriginal, fruitless, I know, but it's still a pretty good flick to watch when you've nothing better to do.

The special effects are hokey. The acting is bad. You'll think to yourself, "When's the idiot thief going to get eaten?" In short, you've seen just about every cliche in this flick in just about every other film made on such a low budget.

Just remember, good friends, this film has no intention on garnering accolades from Oscar, Tony, Emmy, etc. It's pure, brainless, silly fun that is meant to kill the evening on which you can't fall asleep. Buy it if you suffer from insomnia, rent it if you don't. Either way, you'll end up thinking that this flick isn't TOOOO bad to watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Look Out! It's a Man in a Rubber Suit!!! April 17, 2005
Criticising this film is like shooting fish in a barrel with a howitzer. It's cheesy, it's ridiculous, it's utterly unrealistic.

But it DOES have the first genuine, bona fide man-in-a-rubber-suit monster I've seen in ages.

It wasn't long ago that almost any otherworldly creature seen on the screen was a stunt man in a stifling rubber suit. Whether it was a towering Godzilla or a dinky little Saucer Man, a Creature from the Black Lagoon or the Monster of Piedras Blancas, the phoney rubber monster suit ruled the screen.

Here in the age of CGI, I didn't think we'd ever see another of these old-school horrors, so I admit I got a few chuckles out of this film. And if you have fond memories of those hokey, shambling rubberized monsters of yesteryear, maybe you'll smile, too.

1.0 out of 5 stars it'll burn your retinas it's so bad December 12, 2009
i bought this for a friend at work . he's hispanic and ocassionally told me with great humor and glee about the modest origins of the creature they call the Chupacabra (goat sucker) . i wanted to be able to discuss the film with him and laugh about it . so it was that i tried to watch this film . i made it to about the forty minute mark and was "gone like a train" . i recognized John Rhys-Davies (gimli) from the "Lord of the Rings" films as well as Indiana Jones middle eastern friend from those pictures . i tell you with all honesty , you routinely see very bad television on the Sci-Fi channel and related programming that blows this film out of the water . you'll see . i've seen better productions at the local playhouse . in every respect . the producers must have signed the check over to John and then gotten under way . i've bailed on a fair share of films in my time but you've got to be brain damaged to endure this inexplicably R rated hate crime . i gave it to my friend and told him i'd pay him two dollars if he watched it until its conclusion (on the honor system) . he still has yet to see a frame . that was about two months ago . if you've seen this picture until its credits roll you're either my hero or suicidal . either way , seek help promptly . Ed wood would genuflect before these filmakers .
