The Legend of La Llorona

The Legend of La Llorona

One of the most known horror stories in Mexico is with the wailing banshee called La Llorona. For generations, people retell the story of the evil spirit that lures children into the water in order to drown them. Once again, the story comes to screen in the indie horror The Legend of La Llorona.

The film stars Autumn Reeser, Antonio Cupo, Zamia Fandino, and Danny Trejo. Patricia Harris Seeley directed the movie from the story written by Cameron Larson, Jose Prendes, and Seeley.

Here is the official synopsis:

A malevolent spirit bent on vengeance, stalks a young family visiting Mexico. Andrew, Carly, and their son Danny travel to an isolated hacienda in Mexico for a much-needed vacation. As they enter the town, signs showing missing children set an ominous tone. The family learns of the legend of “La Llorona,” the evil spirit of a distraught mother who lurks near the water’s edge and strikes fear in the hearts of all who see her. La Llorona torments the family mercilessly, snatching Danny and trapping him in a netherworld between the living and the dead. Aided by the resourceful taxi driver Jorge (Danny Trejo), the family races to save their only child, navigating the foreboding countryside held by menacing cartel thugs. Gaining strength and power and leaving a path of death and destruction in her wake, La Llorona is seemingly unstoppable. But a secret from Carly’s past may provide an opportunity to finally defeat the spirit.

In the past few years, a few La Llorona stories made it to screen, including Jayro Bustamante’s La Llorona and Warner Brothers’ The Curse of La Llorona. You’ll still find plenty of older films and short films based on this legend. It’s a popular scary children’s tale and an easy one to tell on screen.

The Legend of La Llorona is in select theaters on January 7. Then it follows with a digital release and On Demand on January 11.
