Haven’t heard much about the goatsucker in recent years. Seems ol’ chupacabra has been laying low. That’s about to change with a new b-movie from Brazil A Noite do Chupacabras, which translates to Night of the Chupacabras.
Undead Backbrain brings us word on the low budget Brazilian monster movie, including this roughly translated synopsis.
A young couple returns to their land of origin in the interior of Espírito Santo in Brazil, a journey through forests and mountains full of mysteries, legends and natural beauty. Douglas Silva (Joel Caetano) finds his family upset over the mysterious death of their farm animals and old conflicts that have long plagued the area’s rival families resurface. The Silva brothers are increasingly certain that the deaths were orchestrated by the neighbouring Carvalho family. However, Douglas’ father knows that something more sinister lurks in the woods. With the families at war, they are faced with an evil greater than they can imagine. Between fights, chases, hunts and lots of shooting, the mythical creature, the Chupacabra, reveals itself for the first time.
The director of the film is Rodrigo Aragão. His previous foray into b-moviedom was a film that’s title translated to Mud Zombies.
A Noite do Chupacabras is still filming with July 11th listed as its planned release date. Allegedly it will be available with both Spanish and English subtitles, but whether or not any of us up here in the States ever get to see it remains to be seen. You can see the teaser trailer below.
