A horror fable

Kiko Vega’s criticism for the blog Espinof He describes it as “a horror story”, as it touches on strong themes, such as the dark side of the entertainment world, the narcissism that arises from fame and the problems of fatherhood. In addition, the cast of characters includes many that we would not exactly classify as good people.
