THE CURSE OF THE CRYING WOMAN / Cinematográfica ABSA - 1969

Hello everbloody, Tabonga here, tonite we have a great little horror flick from south of the border with the original 1963 title of "La maldición de la Llorona." This is the K. Gordon Murray, Englishified version, and, it stars Abel (THE BRAINIAC) Salazar and is directed by Rafael (THE HELL OF FRANKENSTEIN) Baledón. Abel was also producer.

The story's about a young woman who inherits a mansion, only to discover that it's haunted by a witch and evil spirits after she arrives there. This really is an above average, hair-raising production. Written by Rafael Baledón and Fernando Galiana.

The music is by the fantastical Mexican composer, the great Gustavo César Carrión, who we've featured many times before, here at The Dungeon!

Lettuce bring in our puny litle Dungeon helper and button pusher, what ellus, Rufus The Gnat! How ya doin' Rufus!.. We can start the show, so... Push the big red 'GO' button there by the escape hatch, now, Rufus! Here's our Eariffic Soundclip for... THE CURSE OF THE CRYING WOMAN!

The woods are haunted by night is how the legend goes... Jaime and Amelia are glad to finally get to their destination, Amelia's recently inherited haunted mansion!

It doesn't take long before Amelia starts seeing some pretty freaky stuff! That's what appears in the mirror while she's looking into it.

Then, she has to deal with this bitch.. err, witch!

Jaime goes exploring the creepy place, looking for some clues to the strange goings-on that are taking place...

Only to get grabbed by some infernal hands, then, fall through the railing and get knocked unconscious!.. Sheesh!!

The witch conjures up some evil spirits to do her bidding... Killer sets and props!

Then, the bitch.. err, witch, well, she hypnotizes Jaime with one of her hallucinogenic spells!..

And, he goes on a bad trip, big time!

Let's give a shout out to Carlos Grandjean for the awesome sets he created for this film!

This is the crazy thing in the dungeon cell that attacked Jaime. The witch's big brute helper likes to mess with it.

It escapes from it's cell, jumps off the upstairs railing and lands standing up on the floor below!! Wowzers!!!

The police show up to find out what's going on only to be attacked by the large killer dogs!

This dirty son of a bitch, the witch's helper, totally rivals Leo Gordon for being big, mean and scary!

The mansion begins to crumble under it's own evilness!

The huge bell in the tower breaks loose and falls directly on the witch's trapped helper, finally putting an end to his evil existence! The still shows the heavy bell on it's way down.

The thing then attacks the witch and the metal chandelier also breaks free and scores a direct hit.

The bitch decomposes right before our very eyes!..
