The Curse of La Llorona hits theaters in 2019, and the first poster debuted this afternoon. The film, produced by James Wan, Gary Dauberman, and Emile Glasdstone and is the directorial debut of Michael Chaves. Chaves was just tapped to direct The Conjuring 3, based off his work on this film. The first footage that we got to view at Scarediego back at SDCC this past July was pretty good, so consider this one to keep an eye on for sure. The first trailer will debut tomorrow as well. Check out the poster below:
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 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking the night—and the children. 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.
Beware of her chilling wail…she will stop at nothing to lure you into the gloom. Because there is no peace for her anguish. There is no mercy for her soul.
And there is no escape from the curse of La Llorona.
The Curse of La Llorona, directed by Michael Chaves and starring Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, Patricia Velasquez, Marisol Ramirez, Sean Patrick Thomas, Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen, and Roman Christou opens in theaters on April 19, 2019.
