The horror thriller “The Curse of La Llorona” will be available to stream next month. Warner Bros. Pictures announced that “The Curse of La Llorona” releases on Digital on July 16th, followed by the Blu-ray and DVD version on August 6th.
The feature directorial debut of Michael Chaves, the movie stars Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, and Patricia Velasquez. The film also features Marisol Ramirez, Sean Patrick Thomas, Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen, and newcomer Roman Christou.
The movie did very well in theaters, opening in April with a $26M debut before grossing over $121M worldwide. Following the same blueprint as the other James Wan horror films, the studio put together this movie on a tight budget estimated at $9M.
“The Curse of La Llorona” was written by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis (“Five Feet Apart”) and produced by Wan, Gary Dauberman and Emile Gladstone.
Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Walter Hamada, Michelle Morrissey and Michael Clear served as executive producers.
Set in 1973 Los Angeles, the film tells the story of Anna Tate-Garcia (Linda Cardellini), 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 the 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.
The studio teased the story adding, “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 own could be next.”
