In this made-for-cable horror story, Dr. Peña (Giancarlo Esposito) is a scientist with a passionate interest in the chupacabra, a South American creature similar to the North American Bigfoot or Yeti. While many believe the chupacabra is a myth, Peña is convinced the beast truly exists, and he sets out to find it. Peña succeeds in capturing a living chupacabra in the Caribbean, but discovers the animal is stronger and more dangerous than he expected -- it's strong, has a violent nature, and can withstand tremendous punishment. Nevertheless, Peña goes ahead with his plan to take the chupacabra to the United States, and sneaks the beast on board an ocean liner headed for America. As bad luck would have it, the monster escapes from its cage, and begins killing the passengers at a feverish pace. Now Randolph (John Rhys-Davies), the ship's captain, is seemingly the only one who can subdue the chupacabra and bring the ship home.

      Good "bad" movie

      This is one of those movies that you don't expect or watch it because it is good. You watch this one because it is so bad... acting, special effects, etc. I am recommending this to anyone who loves these type of movies, as those that are on Sci-Fi. It is a movie you can fall asleep to and wake up without missing a thing (b/c there is little plot advance). I find this to be an entertaining monster movie, but it is only recommended if you like cheaper made monster movies. I am not recommending this to the basic movie goer.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
