New pics: Scary Stories to Tell In the Dark & The Curse of La Llorona

Yesterday we shared a new look at John Lithgow as Jud Crandall in Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer's upcoming remake/re-adaptation of Stephen King's PET SEMATARY. That pic came from a Horror Movies of 2019 preview on Fandango, and today we have two more pics from the preview. 

Today's new pics are for director André Øvredal (THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE) and producer Guillermo del Toro's adaptation of author Alvin Schwartz's SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK and director Michael Chaves' and producer James Wan's THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA.

The CURSE OF LA LLORONA pic is the better of the two highlighting what is sure to be a showstopping scene of terror, while the SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK pic is a bit underwhelming as it seems to be a behind-the-scenes pic of the house used in AMERICAN HORROR STORY: MURDER HOUSE. Is it the same house? Looks like it to me. Check out the pics below and then let us know what you think!


La Llorona.  The Weeping Woman.  A horrifying apparition, caught between Heaven and Hell, trapped in a terrible fate sealed by her own hand.  The mere mention of her name has struck terror around the world for generations.  In life, she drowned her children in a jealous rage, throwing herself in the churning river after them as she wept in pain.  Now her tears are eternal.  They are lethal, and those who hear her death call in the night are doomed.  La Llorona creeps in the shadows and preys on the children, desperate to replace her own.  As the centuries have passed, her desire has grown more voracious… and her methods more terrifying.

In 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking the night—and the children. Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm.  Their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide. 

Beware of her chilling wail… she will stop at nothing to lure you into the gloom. Because there is no peace for her anguish. There is no mercy for her soul. And there is no escape from the curse of La Llorona.


a young girl still haunted by her mother’s disappearance on Halloween night — an incident that she suspects her father knows more about than he lets on. Years later, Stella and her friends are involved in a Halloween prank gone wrong. But are they really at fault, or was it the work of a vengeful spirit — a female ghost who uses her scary stories to come after the teens when they begin to investigate the disappearance of several children? 

Del Toro wrote the SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK screenplay with Kevin Hageman, Dan Hageman, Patrick Melton, and Marcus Dunstan. CURSE OF LA LLORONA was written by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis. THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA comes to life April 19, 2019, and Lionsgate releases SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK August 9, 2019. Which film are you looking forward to the most?
