The final seconds of The Curse of La Llorona may actually mean something quite sinister for one of the film’s main characters.
Easter weekend’s biggest new film release is the latest entry into The Conjuringuniverse, The Curse of La Llorona. The movie focuses on the legendary story of La Llorona, also known as the “weeping woman”. She is a central figure in Latin American folklore and her story has been spun into many different variations over the years.
The main similarities through these differing fables is that a woman is overcome with a jealous rage after finding out her husband has been having an affair. She decides to steal from him that which is most precious and drowns their children. In most versions, she is unable to deal with the grief and guilt afterwards and commits suicide.
