Indigenous Review


American Tourists travel to Panama and have a very terrifying experience.

Director Alastair Orr directed his first movie, Expiration in 2011 which did not do so well. He redeemed himself with this low budget horror movie that is a must watch for all horror fans. Brendan Roberts did a great job with the visual effects and cinematography. I was really excited to see this movie because there is not many Chupacabra movies lately - I was not disappointed. I gave this movie a seven because of the Chupacabras and the friends venture through the jungle to see a pristine waterfall. It also receives a seven because the director and actors pulled off an exceptionally good job considering they are newbies. The movie did not receive a higher score because it is similar to all the horror movies - a group of friends in the forest, jungle, secluded cabin or somewhere where horror invites itself.

The movie is about a group of friends (listed below) residing in Los Angeles, California that went on a week long vacation to Panama that is supposed to include partying, drinking and surfing but experienced pure terrifying gore filled horror. The friends met a female, Carmen (Laura Penuela) in their hotel bar and were told of a nearby waterfall that they can go to if they hike through the jungle of the Darien Gap. They were warned by a surfer not to go looking for this mysterious waterfall because he has never saw or heard of anyone returning from their expedition. Carmen convinces the group to skip surfing and partying so they can explore the waterfall. The five friends ignore all warnings and ask the beautiful Carmen to be their guide to the waterfall.

Their journey through the jungle in the beginning was all they expected, total fun. Soon, Carmen disappears and their world as they know it is changing and now they are in fear for their life. They realize a little too late that they should have took heed to the warnings from the locals and stayed away. Will the friends survive from the flesh eating blood thirsty monsters that are Chupacabras? Why did Carmen intentionally point them in the direction of the Chupacabras cave? Chupacabras love animal blood, so why they crave for human blood? Watch the movie and see!!!
