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.
