In 1997, three crypto-zoology students ventured into Santa Maria, TX to make a documentary… A year later they finished it.  The Legend of the Chupacabra (translated from Spanish, “goat sucker”).  Is it mere folklore?  A government conspiracy?  Some weirdo in a latex suit?  When the mutilation of her uncles goats (and her uncle) by the brutal Chupacabra is caught on tape, Maria Esperanza vows to find out despite local fears.  With her crack team of students and one tough ex-Marine, Maria manages to make a ghastly revealing film that makes “The Blair Witch Project” look like a failed student documentary.  Dedicated to all those who died during the making of this film.
