Oh joy, another 'found footage' movie. Yeah, this is exactly what the world of cinema needs, because this genre is oh-so-spectacular. You do notice the sarcasm permeating there, right? It is no secret that I am not a fan of the 'found footage' genre, not at all. I think it is one of the most stupid genres around, and there are very, very few movies in the genre that actually manages to pass off as being a worthwhile movie to watch. They just tend to fall into the same pitfall and turn out overly generic, and once you have seen one, you have essentially seen all.
The story here is about a group of film-makers venturing out into the woods in search of proof that the elusive Chupacabra does exist.
Wait, what? Isn't this exactly like every other 'found footage' movie? Yup, it sure it. Someone ventures out into the wilderness in order to document the existence of some creature, and they end up being hunted and preyed upon by that very creature.
So there was nothing, absolutely nothing new to be seen in the 2016 "Chupacabra Territory" movie.
The acting in the movie was as it has been in virtually every other 'found footage' movie; nothing to be overly impressed with. I am sure that the people here had fun making this 'found footage' movie, but the entertainment value of the movie was almost non-existent.
As for the special effects, well, let's just say that you shouldn't get your hopes up.
The movie is so predictable that you already know how it will end before you press the play button. The movie was so predictable that even a blind man would go "oh no they didn't..."
I am sure that there is an audience out there for these 'found footage' movies, but I would like to be entertained by a movie that has a professional feel to it, not by a movie that I could have filmed myself by bringing my digital video camera out to the woods.
