Cryptozoologist Doctor Peña ('Giancarlo Esposito') traps the legendary Chupacabra on a remote Caribbean Island to make his name in the scientific community. When he smuggles it aboard the cruise ship Regent Queen, commanded by Captain Randolph, (John Rhys-Davies), the monster breaks out of the cargo hold and makes a smorgasbord out of the passengers and crew. Navy SEALs are called in to evacuate the ship and battle the monster, but it ultimately comes down to Captain Randolph, his daughter Jenny (Chelan Simmons), and Federal Marshall Lance Thompson ('Dylan Neal') to save the day.Written by

The filmmakers initially wanted the chupacabra to have glowing red eyes, but ultimately decided to pass on this particular idea, because they wanted to make the chupacabra as realistic as possible. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, a group of men are seen making their way through a jungle on a Caribbean island. One of the creatures shown is a meerkat, an animal which is found in African deserts, not in Caribbean jungles. See more »
Otherwise known as Chupacabra: Dark Seas this notable Scyfy Original type isn't as bad as I expected.
Starring industry veteran John Rhys-Davies and the annoyingly annoying Chelan Simmons it tells the story of a cryptozoologist that captures a chupacabra and smuggles it on board a luxury cruise liner as means of transporting it. I'm sure I don't need to say anything more for you to understand exactly how the movie plays out.
Unexpectedly it did go in a couple of directions I didn't expect. Though the cast are lackluster the character development is solid, the practical effects are above par and overall it's really not that bad.
On the flipside however the cgi is poor, it's cliched to hell as you'd expect and did I mention how annoying Chelan Simmons is? Seriously, that girl has no place in the movie industry whatsoever.
Take your brain out stuff, not good by any stretch of the imagination but for what it is there's considerably worse out there.
Passable practical effects
Fairly decent characters
Needless animal death
