Episode 33: La Llorona Movies, feat. Kristine Fisher

THERE’S A CHILL UPON THE AIR AS THE WIND CARRIES THE CRIES OF A WEEPING WOMAN. MIS HIJOS! MIS HIJOS!


Once upon a time, there was a poor woman who murdered her children after being slighted by her wealthy lover. Or was it an indigenous woman who had her child stolen by colonizers? Or maybe it was an accidental pregnancy that was secretly terminated? However the story goes, the woman died and her ghost now wanders the night in search of new children. To avoid her wailing spirit, take a listen to Gabe and returning guest Kristine Fisher as they talk about movies starring that most popular of Latin American ghosts, La Llorona, including Ramón Peón’s La Llorona (1933), René Cardona’s La Llorona (1960), Rafael Baledón’s The Curse of the Crying Woman (1961), Miguel M. Delgado’s Santo and Mantequilla Napoles in The Revenge of the Crying Woman (1973), Rigoberto Castañeda’s Kilometer 31 (2006), and Jayro Bustamante’s La Llorona (2019).
