In a nearby mansion, tales are told of ancient curses that will bring death upon the family’s young son. There is a black-hooded figure lurking about secret passageways, seemingly waiting to strike. Soon the grandfather is found in the study, murdered, the sound of the wailing ghost reverberates through the house. Before long the black-hooded killer has snatched the son and fled to a sacrificial chamber in the dank torture dungeon beneath the mansion. Will he be saved in time? The Crying Woman was the first sound Mexican horror film and it’s filled with many ominous black and white images. Subtitled in English. From 16mm.
