I’m so mad about La Llorona… it’s insulting not only to reduce such a defining story in Latino culture to another Conjuring movie, but to also whitewash the cast and NOT EVEN PRONOUNCE THE NAME RIGHT

After viewing the new trailer, let us know your thoughts. Does it change your mind or is it still Hollywood whitewashing?
Synopsis: In 1970s Los Angeles, the legendary ghost La Llorona is stalking the night — and the children. Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother, a social worker and her own kids are drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their only hope of surviving La Llorona’s deadly wrath is a disillusioned priest who practices mysticism to keep evil at bay.
