To some, she’s just a folktale. The creepy teaser trailer and poster for The Curse of La Llorona, the latest New Line Cinema horror from the people who brought audiences The Conjuring Universe and IT, has been revealed.
La Llorona. The Weeping Woman. A horrifying apparition, caught between Heaven and Hell, trapped in a terrible fate sealed by her own hand. The mere mention of her name has struck terror around the world for generations. In life, she drowned her children in a jealous rage, throwing herself in the churning river after them as she wept in pain.
Now her tears are eternal. They are lethal, and those who hear her death call in the night are doomed. La Llorona creeps in the shadows and preys on the children, desperate to replace her own. As the centuries have passed, her desire has grown more voracious…and her methods more terrifying.
The Curse of La Llorona, which is set for release in April 2019, is produced by Emile Gladstone, Gary Dauberman who brought you “IT” and the “Annabelle” franchises, and James Wan of “The Conjuring” Universe. Michael Chaves, who won Shriekfest’s Best Super Short Film in 2016 for “The Maiden,” makes his feature directorial debut.
