Constantine, Supernatural and Buffy the Vampire Slayer are some of the most iconic and fun TV show in the English-speaking world, well here comes “Diablero.” The stylized look and music gives us a modern feel and its location is spectacular and a place where something like this probably could very likely happen; Mexico City.
