Malaysians have been freaking out over the sound of a woman crying during their drive home from work in the evenings
If that wasn't freaky enough, some have even heard it in pitch-black cinema halls
According to eye-witnesses, there were people who even ran out of cinema hall when the weeping began because they just couldn't tahan the creepiness!
We got a recording of the "weeping woman" so you can listen to it for yourself:
Not something you wanna hear when you're alone in the dark ( ⚆ _ ⚆ )
But if you thought that was scary, it's honestly about to get much worse
Because that crying sound is actually a teaser for a terrifying new horror movie called 'The Curse of the Weeping Woman'
The Weeping Woman, known as La Llorona, is based on Mexican folklore. It is believed that she drowned her two children in a jealous rage. Upon realising what she had done, she throws herself into river as she wails in pain.
Since that time, her spirit continues to weep for her children, as she takes child sacrifices to replace her own.
Watch the trailer to see how she traps her next victims:
Set in the 1970s, the film centres around Anna Garcia, a widowed social worker, who is raising her two kids alone. One fateful night she brings her children with her on a call to help one of her troubled clients who is suspected of child endangerment.
The client warns of a supernatural danger, but is ignored... Until Anna realises that La Llorona has latched on to her family in a desperate bid to replace her murdered children.
Produced by James Wan, renowned for directing the first two 'The Conjuring' films, you can be sure this is going to be an absolute scare-fest
We're super excited to watch yet another horror masterpiece from James Wan. With serious scares worked into the most mundane moments, be prepared to never sleep in the dark again.
The star-studded film features Linda Cardellini, Patricia Velasquez, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Raymond Cruz.
