Sometimes we just think that creative Hollywood types just take a spinning wheel of ideas and just let the wheel decide, no matter what the outcome will be. No matter how much it makes your cringe.

Such is the case of Syfy’s “Chupacabra vs. The Alamo” original movie. Starring Erik Estrada. Of course.


Even if this were campy fun, this is just so wrong.

Our friends at Huff Post’s Latino Voices said it best:

The chupacabras is back! But don’t worry, because Erik Estrada is here to protect us all…

With suspense, horror and a hint of comedy, the new original movie “Chupacabra vs. The Alamo” debuts on the SyFy to revive the legend of the terrifying and mythical predator that attacks animals and kills them by drinking all their blood.

And who better to fight this dangerous character than Erik Estrada? The Puerto Rican actor stars as DEA Agent Carlos Seguin, who is in charge of combatting the violence and mysterious deaths that have been disturbing San Antonio citizens for some time.

However, Carlos quickly learns that unlike what he thought, the incidents might not be gang-related. To his surprise, it is the Chupacabras (Goat Sucker), a vampire monster, who has been using drug-smuggling tunnels to hunt for food, causing all the commotion.

It is time now for Estrada to save his town. He returns with his motorcycle to remind us he still has what it takes to be an action hero.

Oh, Gollum, what say you?
