New Line Cinema has released a new trailer for the upcoming horror movie The Curse of La Llorona. The tale of La Llorona tells of a young woman who drowned her children in a fit of jealousy, only to commit suicide when she realized what she’d done. Now, her spirit haunts the earth, sobbing and cursed to search for her children in the afterlife for all eternity. And if she can’t find hers, she might take yours.
The latest horror picture from New Line Cinema comes from producers James Wan, Gary Dauberman, and Emile Gladstone, and tells the tragic and terrifying tale of the legend of La LLorona. Set in the 1970s, the film stars Linda Cardellini as a social worker who finds her self trapped in La Llorona’s nightmare when children start going missing. Written by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis, and directed by Michael Chaves (who is set to take the helm of the Conjuring franchise from Wan), this is poised to be the next big horror hit from the studio behind The Nun and It.
This new trailer offers a closer look at the creepy atmosphere that Chaves has conjured, and it’s mighty impressive. There are also a couple of solid scares here, and given the success of recent New Line horror films, I have no doubt this movie’s going to be a huge hit.
Check out the new Curse of La Llorona trailer below. The film also stars Raymond Cruz, Patricia Velasquez, Marisol Ramirez, Sean Patrick Thomas, Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen and newcomer Roman Christou, and arrives in theaters on April 19th.
