The Curse of La Llorona

La Llorona. A horrifying apparition, caught between Heaven and Hell. In Latin American lore, she drowned her children in a jealous rage, throwing herself in the river after them as she wept in pain. In the centuries since, she creeps in the shadows, preying on the children of others to replace her own.
Ignoring the warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and single mom is soon drawn into the terrifying supernatural realm of La Llorona. With the lives—and souls—of her own kids at stake, she seeks the help of a disillusioned priest-turned-“curandero,” whose mystic faith and practices may represent their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly curse.
