According to the manager suckingHis inspiration came from the blockbuster films of Amblin, a production company set up by Steven Spielberg. In addition, about the myth that gave rise to the story, he explained: “Talk of the chupacabra began in the 1990s in Puerto Rico, after a pair of goats were found dead with stomach injuries. The legend quickly spread throughout Latin America and the southern United States.
“I first learned about the chupacabra when I was 10 years old. The news spread all over Mexico, and there were sightings in the city where I grew up. I was secretly excited to meet one,” adds Jonas, son of famous director Alfonso Cuaron.
