Warner Bros. Pictures is gearing up to a major release of one of this year’s most anticipated horror films – The Curse of the Weeping Woman on April 19. Previously titled The Curse of La Llorona, this film is an ode to one of the most widespread horror stories shared within the Hispanic community over many many generations.

As per lore, the Weeping Woman is 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. She 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 which is proven with the 1970s based tale of a social worker and her kids being drawn into the frightening supernatural realm of the Weeping Woman
Beginning April 19, 2019, this timeless Hispanic legend comes to terrifying life pan India across English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages. The film stars Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, and Patricia Velasquez. The cast also includes Marisol Ramirez, Sean Patrick Thomas, Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen, and newcomer Roman Christou.
The film is produced by the horror genre legend James Wan, Gary Dauberman, and Emile Gladstone. Michael Chaves, who won Shriekfest’s Best Super Short Film in 2016 for “The Maiden,” makes his feature directorial debut.
Producer James Wan, who has delivered some of the biggest horror genre flicks, said:
“It’s a story that I loved and obviously coming from Australia, it wasn’t something I wasn’t familiar with until I came to the US. It’s folklore from the Hispanic Mexican community. When I heard it from friends around, I knew this would make an awesome story one day. It’s really cool to find and show the world the other kind of ghost stories than what they are used to seeing.”
