After making his mark as a screen actor in a series of shot-on-video movies for J.R. Bookwalter (“The Dead Next Door”), independent writer/ producer Tom Hoover embarked on his first feature in the director’s chair. The result was “Chupa,” an “X-Files” style, conspiracy-minded creature feature conceived after starring in “Polymorph” (1996), which would take four long, grueling years to complete — only to wind up gathering dust on a shelf, unreleased for over two decades.

Something in the woods is feeding on people, bleeding them dry. What little evidence there is suggests it may be the work of the Chupacabra, a creature most believe to be little more than urban legend. According to folklore, Chupa kills small livestock, living off their blood. But why has it started preying on people? To answer that question, a small Federal, military, and civilian task force has been sent deep into Ohio’s expansive Cuyahoga Valley National Park to find and capture the mythical monster. But it won’t be taken without a fight, and as the hunters quickly become the hunted, they soon realize their “Chupa” may be something else altogether. Something that feeds in secret has started feeding... on them!

Newly restored from the original Digital Betacam videotape edit master, Tempe Digital resurrects the lost late-‘90s SOV opus “Chupa” on Blu-ray with all-new, revealing behind-the-scenes bonus material!

No, we only ship inside the US

Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.

We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.


All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.

Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.

Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.

If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.


We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
