Not even the bathtub is safe in new trailer for The Curse of La Llorona

As Anna delves deeper into Patricia’s case, she notices similarities with odd occurrences in her own home, and she realizes the other woman was right: her children are being hunted by a ghost. She enlists the help of a priest and some local faith healers to drive the ghost away. The glimpses we get of are in keeping with the myths: she wears a long white gown with a veil.

We don’t hear her wailing, but we do see her skulking behind curtains and snatching at the little boy’s feet, and her gnarled dead hands grab Anna and throwing her against the wall.

In the most chilling scene, those same hands wash Anna’s daughter’s hair in the bathtub before pushing her down into the water. All in all, promises some effective jump scares and a compelling mythology, so it should satisfy fans of Wan’s earlier horror movies.

hits theaters April 19.
