LA MALDICION DE LA LLORNA (Curse of the Crying Woman)
Dir: Rafael Baledón, 1963
Mexico, 80 min.
Spanish with English subtitles

"Soon, the blood will disappear from her veins...she won't need it..."

The easiest way to explain LA MALDICION DE LA LLORNA is a Mexican take on Bava's BLACK SUNDAY, and while that's a bit *too* easy (and does Mexican horror a bit of a disservice), both films are packed with Gothic horror from the first scene. A ghostly woman with black eyes and three flesh-eating hounds sets upon a stagecoach with her knife-throwing thug, murdering everyone on board before we even get to the opening credits! Director Rafael Baledón (MUSEUM OF HORROR, THE SHE-WOLF, SWAMP OF LOST SOULS) gives us everything we could want from a film like this: secret passageways, deformed mutants, a cellar crypt where a dead body waits to rise, voodoo, solarized film, whippings and more, all set on a pitch-perfect decaying hacienda. Our witch, Rita Macedo (A BULLET FOR BILLY THE KID), commands this film, constantly plotting against her niece Rosita Arenas (who we'll also see in EL ESPEJO DE LA BRUJA/THE WITCH'S MIRROR, playing this month!). Add a score filled with musical saws, organ stabs and pounding drums and every piece is in place for a film that deserves a better-known spot at the table of Gothic Horror. Late-night Creature Feature fans might know this film from the K. Gordon Murray dub, but as with every film in this series, we're providing the original full-length cut in Spanish with English subs. Those of a delicate constitution: don't come alone!
