Scary legends Mexican style

Las Momias de Guanajuato

In 1833 a great plague hit the city of Guanajuato, Mexico. In order to prevent the plague from spreading, people were buried almost immediately after they died. Legend has it that there were several occasions that people where buried alive and when these poor souls woke up from their trance state, they realized they were already buried in a tomb and had an agonizing death. Due to the rich mineral filled soil found in the city of Guanajuato, the bodies were naturally mummified. Decades later with the water level rising, mummies started popping out of the ground and terrorizing the citizens.


Several movies have been made on the Momias de Guanajuato, like the cult classic El Santo Contra la Momias de Guanajuato and the animated movie, La Leyenda de las Momias, which will premier in 2014.


La Llorona

Another famous legend is La Llorona. According to the legend a woman appears at night crying for her children who have been killed. Different variations of this legend say that La Llorona actually killed her children or that her husband, who is Satan, killed their kids. There have been several Mexican cult movies made on this famous legend, La Maldicion de la Llorona by Rafael Baledon and La Llorona by Ramon Peon.

La Leyenda de la Nahuala

And finally we have La Leyenda de la Nahuala from the city of Puebla, Mexico. According to the legend, a witch lived on the street of the Nahuala, and had the ability to transform herself into an animal to terrorize innocent victims at night. In 2007, this famous legend came to life on the big screen with the Mexican animation, La Leyenda de la Nahuala, produced and created by Animex studios and with the collaboration of Grupo Es Comic and BL Cartoons.
