As always I like to warn people when there are subtitles. Since this movie involves international travel to Panama there are subtitles on occasion but not with the main characters so if you hate subtitled movies it is not through out the whole film.
Since this takes place in Panama the creature in this creature feature is the chupacabra. Of course since this is a horror movie there is a dark local legend, as with any remote isolated location in the world, beware where you venture to. You might disappear. And since this is also in Panama the scenery is beautiful. Personally, I do feel bad for the actors who had to wonder in the dark thick jungle. But I think I feel worse for the camera and lighting crew. If you have never been behind the scenes of a movie that is a ton of gear to haul around and set up on a difficult location shot.
Of course you don’t get to see the creature for most of the movie, as in you don’t directly see, you won’t be disappointed when you finally see this awesome design. One reason I selected the feature image above so yo can get an idea of the creature design that was done so well.
Though not a unique horror story, tourist run into a terrifying experience while being stupid on vacation, it was well done with a very high production quality for what I assume may have been a low budget film. I don’t think you will be disappointed if you take a chance on this film.
Last little notes regarding this film. What little gore there is was well down. I really enjoyed the soundtrack. Absolutely loved the ending! Not going to lie it was predictable but still great!
