Behind the Screams of Halloween Horror Nights' 'La Llorona'


Universal Studios always throws a rockin' Halloween party.  Epic mazes, impressive special effects, and gaggles of ghoulies populating the "scare zones" make the studio's Halloween Horror Nights a must each season. One of this year's creepiest residents is La Llorona.  As Universal explains it...

Spanish legend tells that La Llorona, "The Weeping Woman," was a beautiful woman who drowned her children to be with the man she loved. But he rejected her, so she drowned herself too. Her ghost is doomed to wander, vainly searching for her children for all of eternity. According to the tale, she will kidnap wandering children or children who misbehave. Some also believe that those who hear the wails of La Llorona are marked for death.

After the jump, check out a behind-the-screams clip of the making of the new La Llorona attraction.
