Sara Erikson, Erika Fay, Michael Carreo and Mark Halvorson co-headline the blood-soaked, direct-to-video horror picture Mexican Werewolf in Texas. The story, set in the tiny border town of Furlough, Texas, revolves around an enduring southwestern legend - that of "El Chupacabra," or the Mexican werewolf. The atmosphere of Furlough is beginning to suffocate some of its younger residents, specifically Anna, her friends, and her boyfriend Miguel. Drowning in ennui and listlessness, the youths plan to abscond from the town permanently - but then El Chupacabra surfaces, first sucking the blood from all of the area goats, and then preying, one-by-one, on the local teenagers - but no one can figure out why it has suddenly developed a taste for human blood. While racial tensions escalate in the village and Anna devises an off-the-wall method of breaking up with Miguel, the teens band together and hire an "alien hunter," believing that they can trap Chupacabra and make a fortune off of it, that will allow them to escape from the oppressive town forever. Meanwhile, the creature's attacks escalate.
