Mexican Werewolf (2005)

In a small town in Texas something is killing livestock.  While some townsfolk think it is a coyote, the high school kids decide to party, get drunk, and hunt that some bitch, resulting in them discovering - while it's killing one of their moron friends -  that it is not a simple dog like animal.

Look at that cover. Does that look like a werewolf to you? No, no it doesn't because it isn't a werewolf. It's a Chupacabra, the goat sucking creature of legend. It isn't a Mexican werewolf, but let's face it, more people will rent or buy a werewolf movie.

In a side plot, Anna's father hatess her boyfriend Miguel because he is Mexican.  In fact, Dad hates Mexicans so much that he fashions a Chupacabra suit out of animal pelts so that he can dress up as the legendary creature and kill Miguel, who is alone on a werewolf hunting mission.  This is bound to go horribly wrong as anyone could tell, not the least of which is that people are hunting the Chupacabra.

This is a low budget movie and it shows. If you want to watch every movie with werewolf in the title, or see a Chupacabra movie and have low expectations, then you may want to watch it.
