Storyline

Cryptozoologist Doctor Peña ('Giancarlo Esposito') traps the legendary Chupacabra on a remote Caribbean Island to make his name in the scientific community. When he smuggles it aboard the cruise ship Regent Queen, commanded by Captain Randolph, (John Rhys-Davies), the monster breaks out of the cargo hold and makes a smorgasbord out of the passengers and crew. Navy SEALs are called in to evacuate the ship and battle the monster, but it ultimately comes down to Captain Randolph, his daughter Jenny (Chelan Simmons), and Federal Marshall Lance Thompson ('Dylan Neal') to save the day. Written by Steve Jankowski & John Shepphird

finally a good Chupacabra movie....
30 January 2005 | by JasonCBrownADSee all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect when I began watching Chupacabra on the Sci-Fi Channel, I've heard of the mythical creature through folklore, however after only a few moments I just couldn't pull myself away. Sure it was a Saturday night cheesy monster movie, but I wasn't really looking for it to be any more than that. As far as some of the special effects go, the design of the creature was definitely unique and different, I just wish the CG enhancement would have been better. I have seen a couple other versions of Chupacabra movies before and this one certainly had the best looking creature of them all. Kudos to the FX guys and Mr. Sheppard. Hope Sci-Fi replays this movie again so I can set my VCR and add this to my collection or maybe hope for a DVD release. All in all I enjoyed the movie very much and hope to see more creature movies come out of Regent Entertainment and Sci-Fi....
