Storyline

In modern day Mexico, a man on the street is supernaturally killed after hearing the eerie sound of a wailing woman. We then arrive at the manor of an upper class family, who are celebrating their young son's birthday. A mysterious cloaked figure is eavesdropping on them, taking advantage of secret rooms and passages. Eventually, the intruder (who appears to be possesessed) kidnaps and attempts to murder the boy at a pagan altar using a sacrificial knife and stone. While this story unfolds, two flashbacks to the Elizabethan and Inquisition era are related, explaining the origins of the "wailing woman". In one, a woman with an illegitimate child has been abandoned by her lover. His formerly faithful friend forces him to a duel over this betrayal. The woman kills her baby and herself, and upon her death a wraith ascends skyward from her corpse. In the other story, an Indian woman has her baby taken from her by the authorities, and she descends into madness and suicide, with her spirit ... Written by GoblinHairedGuy

8 July 2004 | by (Woodbridge Twp NJ) – See all my reviews

In the series Leyendas Coloniales/de Mexico La Llorona is one Luisa Marquesa Del Llano, who bore childs, one boy one girl to one Nuño De Montesclaros. He tried to take the children with an order from the viceroy of New Spain(now Mexico) instead of turning them over she stabbed (not drown) them. My question is those involved were members of the nobility, early Spanish settler. Hasn't anyone tried to search for records (since they were nobles some mention of them should be available in Spanish archives) to at least verify whether these people existed. Also she was hanged for her crime, there should be records of her trial and execution.
