Blumhouse said in his announcement for this El chaupacabas, Which arrived with an authentic looking sneeze, which turned out to be an April Fools’ Day joke.
“Hidden for years, and no longer a myth, El Chuppabras exists. Will you get beyond that?”
El chaupacabas Looks like an actual horror film, with found-footage elements and monsters thrown at it. It is not until the last jump scare that Blumhouse confirms that it is all a creepy April Fools’ Day prank. The footage has fooled a lot of horror fans and some are also disappointed that the El Chuppara film is not the real deal. Perhaps the trailer’s popularity will convince Jason Blum to adapt the spoof to an authentic horror experience.
