Shudder has released a trailer, poster and images for the Guatemalan horror-thriller La Llorona ahead of its arrival on the streaming service next month. Directed by Jayro Bustamante, the film tells the story of an aging paranoid dictator who is faced with a horde of angry protestors and a wrathful supernatural force looking to seek retribution for his crimes; take a look here…
Indignant retired general Enrique finally faces trial for the genocidal massacre of thousands of Mayans decades ago. As a horde of angry protestors threatens to invade their opulent home, the women of the house—his haughty wife, conflicted daughter, and precocious granddaughter—weigh their responsibility to shield the erratic, senile Enrique against the devastating truths being publicly revealed and the increasing sense that a wrathful supernatural force is targeting them for his crimes. Meanwhile, much of the family’s domestic staff flees, leaving only loyal housekeeper Valeriana until a mysterious young Indigenous maid arrives.
The film features a cast that includes María Mercedes Coroy, Margarita Kénefic, Sabrina De La Hoz, and Julio Diaz.
La Llorona arrives on Shudder on August 6th.
