Continuing from last year, this project is an attempt to help me get dvds that for one reason or another I’ve never seen off of my shelf and give them a watch. For the next two days, I’ve set up a kind of double feature of monster movie sequels where I haven’t seen the first movie. Today I watched Bloodthirst 2: Revenge of the Chupacabras.
IMDb: Bloodthirst 2: Revenge of the Chupacabras (Video 19 April 2005)
Detective Steve Andrews is investigating the disappearance of a pretty college co-ed when he gets a call that an inmate at the Hagerthy Psychiatric Hospital might know something about the case. The inmate, Charles Parker, has been telling the strange story of a vicious vampire-like beast called the Chupacabras that he claims he trapped in a nearby mine and destroyed after it had savagely killed a number of the local citizenry. Among the missing: a girl who matches the description of the college co-ed. Before Andrews can talk to him, however, the inmate escapes leading the Detective into a maze of horror and the realization that he must find the missing girl before time runs out.
The movie does connect to the previous movie. It’s explained well enough that I don’t feel like I missed anything, so props for that. This is fans of ultra low budget movies only. All the hallmarks are here like stagey dialogue, people that are constantly talking to themselves, and of course the bad creature. Being from the mid-2000s, it is entirely CG and it is quite the specimen. It’s head is easily one third size of it’s body. The mouth is constantly open showing off it long sharp teeth that are so far apart they look like you could shove a fist between them and not hit either side. If you’re into that sort of thing, you might get a few laughs out of this. A more patient person would go back and make some gifs of it, but that’s not me. Don’t be mislead by the title though. Chupacabras doesn’t imply that it’s plural. That’s just how it’s said in the world of the film.
Check back tomorrow for another #2. In the meantime, listen to Motion Picture Meltdown’s episode on another cryptid, The Loch Ness Monster, featuring Loch Ness Terror and Incident at Loch Ness.
