After you watch this killer new trailer for Indigenous, which is an upcoming monster movie directed by Alastair Orr, you will be asking yourself the same question I did. WTF is a Chupacabra?
Me digging up some research on the friggin thing, I found out that it’s a legendary cryptid or in simple terms, a creature that lives in the Caribbean. It survives by attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. I’ve never heard of it before, but I guess the filmmakers behind Indigenous thought it was cool enough to make afilm about it. Not a bad idea considering all the images I discovered on Chupacabra are pretty creepy and clearly make for a great mythical type of monster.
Although, the trailer doesn’t really bring anything new to the horror genre. I must admit, however, that the almighty Chupacabra looks grisly, and I’d love to see it suck the blood out of some hot tourist in Panama.
Indigenous will be premiering during the Tribeca Film Festival later this month. In the meantime, you can watch the trailer and keep your eyes peeled for this movie.
A group of five American friends on the cusp of adulthood travel to Panama to relax and party amid the exotic paradise. Befriending a local woman in their hotel bar, they learn of a pristine waterfall nearby, but also of the ominous legend of a monster inhabiting the expanse of unexplored jungle just outside their resort. Ignoring the warnings, they convince the woman to guide them to the picturesque falls. What begins as an innocent outing quickly turns frightening when she suddenly goes missing. As night closes in, the friends realize too late the truth behind the rumors—the legendary, blood-sucking Chupacabra is now stalking them. Director Alistair Orr brings to horrifying life the legendary goat sucker in this spine-tingling and bloody fight for survival. – Cara Cusumano, Tribeca Film Festival
