Originally titled The Children, New Line Cinema has released a motion teaser revealing the title for the upcoming The Curse of La Llorona which you can check out below! Production was announced last October for the film which wrapped in November.
Produced by Conjuring franchise-runner James Wan, the film follows social worker Anna Garcia in 1973 Los Angeles as she begins diving in to one of her cases and finds foul play at the hands of a supernatural force, which she finds has similarities to the force terrorizing her family.
