The Curse of La Llorona on Blu-ray, DVD and digital
Conjuring up scares with a Latin twist
If you don't know her name, you will when The Curse of La Llorona arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. From New Line Cinema and producer James Wan, The Curse of La Llorona brings the iconic Latin American legend to terrifying life in an original horror film, marking the feature directorial debut of Michael Chaves, the innovative filmmaker behind the award-winning short The Maiden.
Set in 1973 Los Angeles, the film tells the story of Anna Tate-Garcia (Linda Cardellini), a social worker and widowed single mom struggling to balance the two roles while still coping with the loss of her husband.
As a skeptic serving a city of believers, Anna has navigated a multitude of phantoms and superstitions in her job, usually finding personal demons lurking beneath. So when she's called to the home of Patricia Alvarez (Patricia Velasquez) and finds her two young sons locked in a closet, she interprets their terrified mother's desperate efforts to keep them locked away as a dangerous sign of abuse.
In the deepest hours of the night, a haunting cry echoes through the corridors of the children's shelter where the two boys sleep... When their bodies are later pulled from the river, their distraught mother lays the blame at Anna's feet, and leaves her with an eerie warning: La Llorona has her children now… but Anna's own could be next.
