The Curse of La Llorona Trailer Will Make You Never Want a Bath Again

Warner Bros. released their first trailer for The Curse of La Llorona back in October. And the footage was a fantastically horrifying glimpse of how terrifying it could be as a child being stuck inside a vehicle with a murderous entity attempting to get inside. Now, the second The Curse of La Llorona trailer has arrived. And I’m not sure I’ll ever take a bath alone again in my life.

The premise of The Curse of La Llorona stems from a Latin American folklore revolving around the ghost of a woman seeking her lost children. Warner Bros. broke down the legend with the La Llorona trailer they released today:

“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.”

In today’s The Curse of La Llorona trailer, we see first hand the evil entity’s attempts to take a pair of children directly from their home. Linda Cardellini’s Anna Garcia is a social worker in the film, and it’s her children The Weeping Woman targets as her next set of kin.

In the plot synopsis, the studio teases that “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.”

That priest who comes to their aid is played by Raymond Cruz (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul). With other notable names attached being, Tony Amendola, Sean Patrick Thomas and Patricia Velásquez.

The film is being produced by James Wan (The Conjuring universe) with directing handled by Michael Chaves. It’s Chaves directorial debut in a feature film, and he’ll follow The Curse of La Llorona with The Conjuring 3 next year. With The Curse of La Llorona trailer looking as good as it does, it appears the series is in good hands.
