A Tribeca International Film Festival trailer has been released for Alastair Orr’s creature feature “Indigenous”. The film stars Zachary Soetenga, Sofia Pernas, Pierson Fode, Jamie Anderson, Lindsey McKeon, and Juanxo Villaverde in a tense thriller about the cryptid chupacabra. “Indigenous” premieres at this year’s TIFF April 20th, 2014.
In the ultimate vacation-gone-wrong scenario, the pic focuses on five friends who travel to Panama to rest and reconnect. Things take a turn when they befriend a local woman in their hotel bar—and despite some ominous whispers—she goes against the specific instructions of her brother and brings the Americans on a day trip into the pristine falls at the nearby jungle. What begins as an innocent outing quickly turns terrifying after she suddenly goes missing and they become prey for the legendary, blood-sucking Chupacabra.
