This Chupacabra Looks Really Creepy


Indigenous is a new horror movie with an interesting plot and creature at the heart of it. The popular South American cryptid the chupacabra takes center stage in this fright fest. Bloody-Disgusting.com recently did a review of the flick, and it sounds like it might be pretty scary. The creature itself looks really creepy. Something you certainly wouldn't want to cross paths with.

It’s a shame we don’t get more cryptozoology-themed horror movies. Modern mythological creatures like Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster have yet to make a memorable film debut, though some filmmakers have tried in the past. Alastair Orr’s Indigenous focuses on South America’s rather recent legend of the Chupacabra, a blood-sucking creature blamed for many reports of cattle mutilation and even human disappearances.

The film follows a group of North-American tourists on vacation in beautiful Panama. When they ignore the natives’ warnings and travel too far into the tropical forest looking for a waterfall, they realize that they’re being stalked by a ravenous creature. As the tourists attempt to escape and call for help, it becomes clear that the legend of the Chupacabra has some truth to it after all.

Obviously, plot isn’t Indigenous’ strongest element. However, even a standard slasher story can be presented in an interesting way depending on the filmmakers. and this is more or less the case here. Alastair has actually managed to turn a potentially boring creature feature into a decent-enough thriller with some clever direction and a stunning filming location that adds visual flare without overloading the budget.

The story does retain some engaging ideas about the negative aspects of tourism and the sadistic nature of media, but the majority of the film just focuses on young adults screaming and running for their lives in a secluded rainforest. There were some found footage elements here and there, but they were only important towards the end of the movie, which I unexpectedly enjoyed. What’s impressive here is the visual control over some of the scarier segments of the film. We see just enough to fear the chupacabra, but not enough to get used to it.
