Hey there everyone! Names FireFrog, hence the left hand side bar which says "FireFrog" on it. If you can't find the left hand side bar its on the left
Well I'm a new member to the boards but I've always been a long time visitor here! I'm 14, share your interest in the paranormal and extraterrestrial etc and also enjoy acting/scriptwriting. In fact, acting/scriptwriting is what I wanna' do for a living.
Aaaanyway... I've had this idea for a movie script (kinda' a thriller or horror depending on how you look at it) about El Chupacabra. I picked the topic because I realise how vague the information on it is which allows me to make up my own background behind the creature and because it has so far not been used in a movie (to my knowledge anyway).
Well I needa' know...
A bit of history behind the first few sightings / reports of the drained cattle. Maybe some witness drawings or pictures of the Chupacabra to get an idea of how it would look.
Basically ANYTHING about the beast would be helpful. I want my script to be true to life in a sense so that it's a bit of history behind it as well as a good story.
Thanx guys, --FireFrog
(also, lookout for an upcomming website of mine on the paranormal )
This is quite an intresting topic actually. As for links, I think the first one Nancy gave you is very good, I may know of a few other ones, not as good though. If I manage to find them I will post the links here.
Cherokee Warrior you've lost your battle that's for sure, but what you left behind is still shining.
Thanks Benjo. I appreaciate that. Yeah, I've been interested in the El Chupacabra phenomena (if you could call it that) since I first heard of it...
I find that a lot of other phenomena although fairly interesting, seem to lack something that makes it rise above all the rest. The theory of alien abductions, Bigfoot and El Chupacabra are by far more interesting than, say Human Malformations and Spontaneous Human Combustion for example as these three things have a certain spark to their stories which others don't have. Possibly more mystery surrounding it?
I love making movies with my Digital Camcorder, most of them are horror( try to be be). In fact there is 1 about a scarecrow my mom made attacking me and my friends! I would like 2 see some of ur movie scripts!
The first time the chupacabra was seen was sometime in the fifties in Puerto Rico close to that military base that was recently shut down. It was described as a tan hairless monkey with a row of spines going down it's back and big bat like wings and the ability to jump very high and agilely. The farmer who had seen it thought that it was a demon and soon found that some of his cattle had been killed. I don't remember much. I found that out when I had gone to Puerto Rico. There was this small little museum thing off this road and we went there and they had like 5 copies of news reels playing once every 10 minutes. As well as statues and articles about every sighting seen posted along the walls and in books. They basically showed interviews with the people who had seen it and little sketches that the people had made after seeing it.
The moment you are born you begin to die. The lesson is life is unfair.
Also it would be a good idea to get the feel of everything if you were to visit the places that it has or has been claimed to attack. That way you could incorporate more of an authentic feel to the way it has either attacked or stalk it's prey.
Wabi-sabi is the quintessential Japanese aesthetic.
It is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.
It is a beauty of things modest and humble.
It is a beauty of things unconventional.
Hmm... thanks for the pointer Bloated Corpse, I'll have to do a bit of research on that field for this script.
Although I do intend to make this authentic in such aspects, part of this script is the fact that El Chupacabra attacks seem to becoming more numorous and targeted more so toward human prey lately... Why? Well I can't tell you that now (there are spies all of this board, just waiting to steal my ideas, I swear it ), but I have it all worked out
Anymore links would be apreciated... Oh, and one more thing... am I to understand that a lot of Chupacabra sightings, while they share a variety of features which are the same (fangs, spikes along spine etc) are fairly varied (as in, someone may say it has short hairs, some may say its hairless, some say it runs on all fours, others say it runs on two legs etc etc)?
Exactly the question that was on my mind... That would believe us to either believe these sightings are hoaxed or the possibility that perhaps their are species of Chupacabra or that they have evolved over time.
Then there's the theory I had for my script, but I can't be giving that away now then eh?
