The Mexican legend of La Llorona tells of a woman who married the man of her dreams and had two children. She finds her husband in the arms of another woman and goes crazy and gets back at him by drowning his sons. When she realizes what she has done she is overcome with grief and kills herself. Then the spirit of La Llorona weeps as she searches for children to sacrifice.
Michael Chaves brings us another tale from the Conjuring Universe called “The Curse of La Llorona” that has a spirit searching for children to kill in south central Los Angeles. La Llorona stars Linda Cardellini (Green Book, Freaks and Geeks) as Anna, a widowed mother of two that burns the candle at both ends working as a social worker for the Dept. of Family Services.
Anna lost her husband, a policeman, to the job killed in action. Anna gets a lead from her boss that one of her clients, Patricia Alverez’s (Patricia Velasquez) boys have not been in school for a week. She goes for an in-home visit where she finds a terrified Alverez and searches the apartment for the boys. Anna finds a closet with a pad lock on the outside and some weird drawings on the door. Inside the closet were the boys were being hidden by Patricia so they weren’t taken by La Llorona (Marisol Ramierez).
