Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The title translated from Spanish to English is La Llorona: Villa of Lost Souls.
- John Murdy said that the facade of this house was one of his favorites.
- Guests would walk over actual water in this house, though it was only a few inches deep.
- Murdy didn’t grow up with La Llorona so he consulted with a lot of different people & read scores of different versions of the legend from various parts of the southwest & Latin America. The basic core of the story in all the versions was extremely dark & Murdy and team didn’t shy away from that. He also did a ton of research on southwestern/Latin American architecture, clothing, & other elements from that time period. Production designer Chris took all that & came up with an eerily beautiful scenic design for the maze.
- John Murdy included a giant La Llorona sculpt eating a child in the maze because he found a story that referred to La Llorona as "an eater of children". He took that phrase literally in the maze.
- The facade for this house was inspired by the "Mission San Francisco De La Espada" church in San Antonio, Texas. John Murdy liked the design because it looked like a face.
