The legendary tale of Mexico, La Llorona is taking on a new, political spin in this new trailer. 

The trailer highlights mass protests of a dictator committing genocide, eventually leading to isolation into his home. Being trapped inside avoiding protesters, the retired general, Enrique begins experiencing mysterious and haunting events. Just a few things from the trailer include flooding, deadly stares, and women in white dresses.

The film looks chilling and eerie. And promises to leave anyone unable to look at any body water without thinking a ghostly woman will pop out. 

Here’s the full plot: 

Indignant retired general Enrique finally faces trial for the genocidal massacre of thousands of Mayans decades ago. As a horde of angry protestors threatens to invade their opulent home, the women of the house—his haughty wife, conflicted daughter, and precocious granddaughter—weigh their responsibility to shield the erratic, senile Enrique against the devastating truths being publicly revealed and the increasing sense that a wrathful supernatural force is targeting them for his crimes. Meanwhile, much of the family’s domestic staff flees, leaving only loyal housekeeper Valeriana until a mysterious young Indigenous maid arrives.
