From horror master James Wan, comes the suspense-filled supernatural chiller The Curse of La Llorona.
To celebrate the release of The Curse of La Llorona in Irish cinemas on May 3rd, we have teamed up with Warner Bros. Pictures to send you to an exclusive preview screening and reception at The Light House cinema on May 1st.
From New Line Cinema and producer James Wan, "The Curse of La Llorona" brings the iconic Latin American legend to terrifying life in an original horror film, making the feature directorial debut of Michael Chaves, the innovative filmmaker behind the award-winning short "The Maiden".
Set in 1973 Los Angeles, the film tells the story of Anna Tate-Garcia (Linda Cartdellini), a social worker and widowed single mom struggling to balance the two roles while still coping with the loss of her husband. As a skeptic serving a city of believers, Anna has navigated a multitude of phantoms and superstitions in her job, usually finding personal demons lurking beneath. So when she's called to the home of Patricia Alvarez (Patricia Velasquez) and finds her two young sons locked in a closet, she interprets their terrified mother's desperate efforts to keep them locked away as a dangerous sign of abuse.
Though Anna is determined to get Patricia the help she needs, her first concern is the safety of her children. But, because she is unaware of the very real danger they face, Anna has no idea what she's about to unleash - or the devastation it will cause - when she places a psychiatric hold on their mother and takes the kids into protective custody.
In the deepest hours of the night, a haunting cry echoes through the corridors of the children's shelter where the two boys sleep... When their bodies are later pulled from the river, their distraught mother lays the blame at Anna's feet, and leaves her with an eerie warning: La Llorona has her children now...but Anna's could be next.
When darkness descends and her kids hear the weeping woman's ominous cries, Anna is forced to confront the reality of Patricia's claims: this legendary spirit is hunting children in modern-day Los Angeles...and her own small kids are her prey.
