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

WOW this was Awesome
25 August 2005 | by Crueldesolation-1See all my reviews

Wow first off if u like garbage the The Ring, Others, Six Sense, Boogyman, etc... stay away. This movie is a throwback to the good old days of horror movies when they had blood, violence, people getting killed, lack of plot w/out stupid lame twists and ending, and an R rating. Without spoiling anything it starts in some remote desert location where some people led by Dr. Pena capture the Chupacabra, then take it onto a friendly cruise ship for delivery, well u can guess what happens from there as things get out of hand and US seals have to come in. This is also maybe the best Chupacabra based movie I've seen as all of his speed and indestructible power is shown and he gets to cut lose. The acting is OK but still better than stuff in todays theaters like The Ring 2, or The cave. john ryes-Davis is a cool Capitan and some pretty hot girl plays his daughter making some nice eye candy for the movie too

Overall this was really good movie and recommended to fans of the genre
