Jonás Cuarón creates a family adventure film based on Latin America’s folklore about a mythical creature. It’s very “Amblin-esque” according to him. So why make a movie about Chupacabras, why make it a family adventure, and really, why call it “Chupa?” The word has a different connotation in both the Latin and Filipino culture.
Take a look at my interview with Senor Cuarón. “Chupa” is now out on Netflix.
I had a great time talking to Christian Slater, Demián Bichir, and Evan Whitten about Netflix’s “Chupa.” It’s a family adventure about a cute Chupacabra featuring Christian Slater as Quinn, the Indiana Jones type of Chupacabra wrangler who knows that the Mexican-American boy Alex (Evan Whitten) and his Lucha Libre abuelo Chava (Demián Bichir) are hiding Chupa!
See the secrets they reveal about making “Chupa.”
