Movie Details

This video is an exploration of the Puerto Rican mythical beast, el chupacabra. The name means " goat sucker" and refers to the creature's predilection for the blood of others. Several deaths of farm animals and pets are ascribed to el chupacabra. The film investigates various theories of the identity of the late-night visitor that drains the blood of its quarry though a neck puncture wound. Possible explanations include a genetic link with the black panther or an extraterrestrial origin. On-site filming and personal accounts tell the story. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
