Based on the authentic Mexican legend first filmed in 1933 as La Llorona, this film begins with a flashback to a gruesome railway murder, setting up the legend of the wailing woman. In the present, a couple (Abel Salazar, Rosita Arenas) travels to a spooky mansion where evil Rita Macedo is trying to revive the mummified La Llorona. Macedo, the wailing ghost, and a deformed caretaker (Enrique Lucero) terrorize the central couple in fairly standard, ho-hum fashion, but director Rafael Baledon uses some interesting techniques to build atmosphere, and Arenas is solid as the imperiled heiress.~Robert Firsching
