La Llorona Hits the Big Screen

La Llorona, the urban legend that has haunted both HHNs in Hollywood and Orlando, is coming to the big screen very soon.

The Latin urban legend dates back centuries. HHN Hollywood got their first taste of the character back in 2010 with her own maze (read more about this ultra detailed maze here). She returned to HHN a further four times with one iteration appearing at the Orlando event.

This Latin American urban legend about a woman who drowns her kids in a river because her husband left her for a younger woman. Realizing what she had done she drowned herself in the river as well. The legend says that she now wanders the Earth looking for her children. Parents would use this story to scare their kids into behaving because they say that she would kidnap wandering kids who resemble her children and take them to a watery grave…

The houses have always been well received and is a firm favorite, and that’s possibly why this legend has been made into a movie. The Curse of La Llorona is to be released April 19 and the best part is that it is being made by the same team behind The SAW, Conjuring and Insidious franchises with James Wan as Executive Producer.
