If there are indeed monsters among us, then Puerto Rico have a goat's worst nightmare on the loose. Legend has it that the chupacabra drains the blood of livestock, though some reckon aliens are responsible. Others believe the real danger is an overactive imagination.
Danilo Parra's new documentary, Mala Onda [Bad Vibes], explores these different perspectives through interviews with local farmers, eyewitnesses, historians, and scientists. The Riff Raff Films/Nursery of Evil director is also interested in how Puerto Rican attitudes change from town to town, as modernity and mythology collide on a regular basis. Venture into chupacabra country if you dare here.
