Trivia

When the Alamo tour guide pulls the Bowie knife out of the display and says "now that's a knife," is a reference to Crocodile Dundee when he pulls his much larger knife out and compares it to the smaller one the gangster pulls on him. See more »

Goofs

Drug smugglers have dug a tunnel from San Antonio to Mexico but San Antonio is 100 miles from the Mexican border. By comparison the Lærdal Tunnel in Norway which is the world's longest tunnel is only 15 miles long. See more »

Here Comes The Chupacabra Tale, Hoppin' Down The SyFy Trail
24 March 2013 | by CalabossSee all my reviews

Those of us that know the SyFy channel movie formula could all see this little treat coming down the road. It has all the elements of traditional SyFy movies; 2nd/3rd rate CGI and actors, thoroughly unappealing characters, inane dialog, and perhaps, a has-been actor thrown in for nostalgia.

And, of course, the title. At this point, I'm convinced that they just brain-storm the most ridiculous movie titles they can think of and make a movie around that title. Chupacabra vs. the Alamo is certainly a winner in that regard. The story is silly, naturally, but I thought the CGI was pretty good, in SyFy movie terms.

Erik Estrada is the curiosity doing the "has-been" duty here, and he's seen better days. The former CHiPs star is in his mid 60's now, and has packed on some tonnage, but he gives this nonsense his best shot and plays his part with gusto. All these movies are made for fun, of course, in the best "wink, wink, nudge, nudge" tradition. Everybody is in on the joke here, except for a few viewers who actually take these things seriously.

It's not giving anything away to say the characters fight the mythical beasts at the Alamo. Guess who wins. About average for a SyFy movie. If you watch it, you'll get exactly what you would expect from the title.
