Creature feature Indigenous hits VOD on December 8th

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

We haven't heard anything about director Alastair Orr's film INDIGENOUS for a while, not since it was playing at the Tribeca and Cannes film festivals in 2014. We have received an update on the film now, though, and it's a type of news I always like to hear: a release date announcement.

Momentum Pictures is set to release INDIGENOUS on VOD on December 8th.

Starring Zachary Soetenga, Lindsey McKeon, Sofia Pernas, Pierson Fode, and Jamie Anderson, the film tells the story of

a group of five young friends who travel from Los Angeles to exotic Panama for a week of partying in lush tropical paradise. Befriending a beautiful local woman in their hotel bar, they learn of a secret jungle hike to a pristine waterfall nearby. The woman cautions them strongly against the hike, warning that other gringos in search of the legendary waterfall had mysteriously disappeared into the jungle, never to be seen or heard from again.  

Ignoring her warnings, the group convinces the woman to guide them to the picturesque waterfall, thinking that they have nothing to fear with a local as their guide. What begins as a fun outing quickly turns terrifying when their guide mysteriously vanishes after a romantic tryst at the falls. As night closes in, the friends realize too late the truth behind her warnings – horrific, bloodthirsty, flesh-eating creatures are now stalking them. The mangled survivors rush to jungle caves for shelter, only to realize they’ve entered the monsters’ lair!

The description doesn't mention it, but we learned last year that the creatures we're dealing with here are chupacabras. Sounds like the makings of a fun monster movie to me, I'm totally up for watching some gringos get devoured by the legendary goatsucker.
