While you may not have heard of The Curse of La Llorona just yet, rest assured that it will be a heavy presence within the modern horror realm.
Directed by newcomer Michael Chaves (who just so happens to be the director for the much anticipated The Conjuring 3) and produced by The Conjuring Universe founder James Wan and Gary Dauberman (IT, The Nun), The Curse of La Llorona is sure to frighten and terrify audiences fresh off the heels of the highly successful run of The Nun.
“Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide.”- Warner Bros.
From the dark and creepy poster to the chilling tagline – “She Wants Your Children” – The Curse of La Llorona builds off of the foundation of the real life Mexican legend of The Weeping Woman, who drowned her two children in a river. It’s said that if you hear the woman’s cries, you are to run the other way – they could bring you misfortune or even death.
The film stars Linda Cardellini (Bloodline), Patricia Velasquez (The Mummy), Raymond Cruz (Breaking Bad), and Sean Patrick Thomas (Halloween: Resurrection), and is expected to release in theaters on April 19, 2019 from Warner Bros. Studios.
