“The Curse of La Llorona is being released on April 19th. It tells the tale of ta legend from Mexican folklore.
According to the myth, La Llorona’s real name is Maria. She came from a poor village, but her beauty won the heart of a wealthy nobleman. They fell in love, got married, and had two baby boys.

One day, he brought a new, younger woman home and said goodbye to his children. Maria was devastated. In a blind rage, she took her children to the river and drowned them.
