MEXICAN HORROR FILMS
La Llorona / The Crying Woman
There are many versions of this popular legend. The basic version is that a beautiful woman killed her children in order to be with the man that she loved, but he rejected her.
She drowned then children, and then after being rejected, killed herself. The legend is that she wanders the countryside, searching for her children, always weeping. She is said to sometimes kidnap children.
It is also believed that whoever hears La Llorona cry is marked for death.
Within Mexican society, she is seen as the archetype of an evil woman who has rejected motherhood for sensual pleasures, and is doomed to eternal suffering.
There have been a number of film versions of La Llorona
A new version will be released soon:
Both films tonight feature Abel Salazar, my favorite Mexican actor!
