Erik Estrada Returns To Fight Mysterious Creature In 'Chupacabra vs. The Alamo' (VIDEO)

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.

The legend of the enigmatic creature, also known as the “Latino Bigfoot” for his constant attacks to primarily Hispanic communities, first emerged in 1995, when eight sheep were found dead and drained of blood at a farm in Puerto Rico. At the time there was no evidence of who or what would have caused the deaths, but several people assured they have seen a ugly looking beast surrounding the areas.

Take a look at the funny sneak peek above and watch the full show on March 23st at 9pm (ET.)
