Dry your eyes, Chicago, and see The Curse Of La Llorona early and for free

The Curse Of La Llorona—starring Linda Cardellini as a social worker who goes up against the child-hungry ghost in 1970s Los Angeles—isn’t the first horror movie to feature the wailing woman of Latinx folklore. (That would be the 1961 Mexican film La maldicion de la llorona, according to The Hollywood Reporter.) But it does mark her entry into the ever-growing catalog of films spun off from James Wan’s The Conjuring, where she’ll now lurk in the shadows alongside the likes of Annabelle and The Nun.

If you live in Chicago and want to check out this latest addition to the Conjuring-verse for yourself, then you’re in luck: We’re giving away advance passes to a screening of The Curse Of La Lllorona on Monday, April 15 at 10:00 PM at the beautiful (and, rumor has it, haunted) Music Box Theatre. To enter to win yours, just follow this link and enter some basic information. Just be sure to arrive early, as advance screenings are intentionally overbooked, and we’d hate to see you get kidnapped by a demon while everyone else is busy watching the movie.


The Curse Of La Llorona opens in theaters on March 19.
