The terrifying Mexican legend of La Llorona returns to Universal Studios Hollywood in the reimagined “Halloween Horror Nights” maze, “La Llorona: Cazadora de Niños.”
La Llorona, the fearful story of melancholy and murder that has terrified Mexican and Latin American children for generations, returns to Halloween Horror Nights, recounting the tortured tale of a mother who drowns her children in a desperate attempt to win a lost love. When her attempt fails, she drowns herself and is doomed to wander the earth forever after.
According to the legend, La Llorona’s eternally piercing nocturnal cries—“My children! Where are my children?”—can be heard as her frail, drenched body lurks throughout the dead of night. Her unsightly presence elicits unwavering dread from the helpless village inhabitants or maze guests as it woefully signifies impending death.
“La Llorona: Cazadora de Niños,” which translates to “Weeping Woman: The Child Hunter,” will feature elaborate sets depicting scenes of a small Mexican village and will tell the haunting story through the mind’s eye of a child, riddled with despair and dread, gore and evil.
