After the success of "Mud Zombies", that visited the exuberant nature of the mangroves from Espirito Santo, "The Night of the Chupacabras" takes us to the rain forests, with its rivers, falls and an extraordinary ecosystem, in the
mythic place called Perocão, where Aragão develops his stories.
Besides some faces of his previous film, "Mud Zombies", the production has the presence of two directors from “Brazilian Border cinema”. Joel Caetano (Recurso Zero Produções), who plays Douglas Silva, the hero, and Petter Baiestorf (Canibal Filmes), who gives life to Ivan Carvalho, a violent and unscrupulous villain.
"In The Night of the Chupacabras, we meet a couple that comes back to its homeland, in the countryside of Brazil. They face a journey in the woods and mountains, surrounded by mystery, legends and natural beauties. Douglas encounters his family concerned with the mysterious deaths of the farm animals, as well as with the old conflicts that for long have been tormenting them and a rival family. The Silva brothers are certain of the revenge planned by the Carvalho, however, the father knows that something creepier is hidden in the woods. The families at war will have to face an evil worst than their imagination. Among fights, chases, hunting’s and a lot of shooting, the mythical figure of the Chupacabras presents itself.
The old quarrel between the families is the scenery, where a monstrous creature appears to suck the blood of the ones in his way. The Chupacabras is born as a curse, as a result of the destructive energies of both families. One night is all he needs to decimate the farms, regardless of whom victims are."
Set in a Western and epic atmosphere, The Night of the Chupacabras brings us beautiful blood baths, gun shoots, and a monster predestined to become an icon among Latin-American monsters.
