Later this April, fans will get to see an infamous Mexican folktale come to life in New Line Cinema’s The Curse of La Llorona. The movie will tell the story of a horrifying apparition known as the Weeping woman, caught between Heaven and Hell and trapped in a terrible fate sealed by her own hand. The mere mention of her name has struck terror around the world for generations.
PursueNews just received a bunch of new hi-res stills from the upcoming movie. From the looks of it, the movie might have a few jumpscare moments that the audiences have grown to love and hate from The Conjuring series. You can check out the images below.
Though the movie is yet to be released it was recently screened at the SXSW festival and the movie has managed to fare well with critics.
The Curse Of La Llorona comes from the shared Horror cinematic universe which was set out by James Wan. The director laid down the groundwork for this genre with the Conjuring series and surprisingly, it has been revealed that The Curse Of La Llorona is connected/part of the Conjuring universe. I’ll refrain from mentioning any further details to avoid spoiling the movie but readers can head over to Bloody Disgusting’s review to know more.
The movie takes place in 1970s Los Angeles and La Llorona is stalking the night—and the children, desperate to replace her own. Those who hear her death call in the night are doomed.
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.
Produced by James Wan and directed by Michael Chaves whose making his feature debut with The Curse Of La Llorona. The movie will hit theaters on April 19, 2019.
