Fresh off the blockbuster success of Aquaman, Director James Wan has produced an upcoming film that returns to his horror roots.

And judging by the latest trailer, The Curse of La Llorona will offer chills aplenty in the same spirit as his Conjuring and Insidious franchises.

The titular ghost La Llorona (which translates as "The Weeping Woman") is based on Latin American folklore; there are many variants, but the film seems to be based on the Mexican version.

A beautiful young woman named Maria marries into a wealthy family, and because her new in-laws disapprove of the match, the newlyweds build a home in her rural village.

Her constant weeping is why she is called La Llorona, and legend has it that, if you hear her wailing, you will have bad fortune and possibly die.

La Llorona also kidnaps children wandering alone at night, mistaking them for her dead sons, and she is said to drown those children, too, all while begging for forgiveness.
