La Llorona from Universal Studios Hollywood

Celebrity fans of the 500 year-old legendary ghost story “La Llorona,” which has terrified Mexican and Latin American children for centuries, share their childhood memories of the timeless urban myth in a bilingual video diary series for Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Halloween Horror Nights.”

Among the stars documenting their first recollections of the dreadful tale are Wilmer Valderrama, Kate del Castillo, Banda Recoditos, L.A. Dodgers’ Luis Cruz, and other leading Latino celebs.

In his “La Llorona” video diary, Valderrama, star of “That ’70s Show,” relates the fear that he and his sisters experienced while listening to the oft-repeated tale.

Kate del Castillo, set to guest star in NBC’s “Grimm’s” La Llorona (Weeping Woman) Halloween episode airing October 26, recalls how the horrid tale frightened her when hearing it for the first time.

Carlos Sarabia, regional Mexican singing sensation of Banda Recoditos, says he first learned of the chilling legend at age 7 and Vicci Martinez, a rising songstress from NBC’s “The Voice,” says she was terrified by the ghostly spirit from ages 5 to 10 years-old.

All the celebrity “La Llorona” videos can be found on Universal Studios Hollywood’s YouTube channel, with Valderrama’s version launching the series today, Oct. 1. Each week will reveal a new celebrity video post through the end of “Halloween Horror Nights.”
