‘The Curse of La Llorona’ hits Star Cineplex

Along with its US release on Friday, ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ (‘The Curse of the Weeping Woman’), an American supernatural horror film directed by Michael Chaves, has hit the screens of the Star Cineplex of both Bashundhara City Shopping Mall and Shimanto Shambhar.

Written by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis, it is the sixth instalment in ‘The Conjuring Universe’.

Based on the Mexican folklore of La Llorona, in 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking the night -- and the children. Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism, he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide.

The film stars Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz and Patricia Velásquez, Marisol Ramirez, Sean Patrick Thomas, Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen, Patricia Velasquez, Tony Amendola and  Irene Keng, among others.
