La Lechuza Haunts Mexico, Southern Texas

Published

on

The Mothman, the Slenderman? These monsters are nothing in comparison to the ugly Mexican folklore crone known as La Lechuza.

La Lechuza isn’t your ordinary witch. No, she is a special kind of supernatural spirit which has many origins and interpretations, but the result is always the same: she eats you.

Part human, part bird, this creature has the body of an owl and the head of a hideous old woman, drawing its victims in by whistling or imitating the cries of a newborn.

Although an old Mexican Urban legend which charts her origins as a vengeful spirit who sold her soul to the devil, there have also been claims that she haunts the southern part of the United States.

In the Texas Rio Grande Valley, near the Mexican border, La Lechuza has become a cautionary tale about the dangers of becoming too inebriated and going out into the night.

The story goes that drunken bar patrons who stumble out after closing have fallen victim to her tree-perched auditory traps, their bones picked clean by her beak-like mouth and razor-sharp talons.

Unlike the Mexican version, the Texas La Lechuza is a vengeful spirit whose children were killed by a drunk driver and that’s why she prefers the flesh of those in a drunken stupor.

Whatever her origins, La Lechuza isn’t a paranormal force to be reckoned with, and you must never venture out at night no matter how concerned you are with the sounds of a crying baby.

Also, when visiting southern Texas make sure to call a ridesharing service if you are too drunk to walk home, or La Lechuza may give you a one-way lift of her own.

New Michael Images From ‘Halloween Ends’ Teases Laurie Showdown

Published

on

In about a month we will finally get to see the conclusion of the Halloween retcon provided to us so lovingly by David Gordon Green. Halloween Ends, ends, on October 14 at your local theater or on your couch via Peacock.

Until then, the folks over at Total Film have released some exclusive pictures from the film that show The Shape in all of his glory.

In what can only be described as polarizing in the horror community, the new Halloween movies have given rise to the voices of purists who either hate the series because it ignores some canon (didn’t Laurie already die?) or, in Kills‘ case, the dangerous irrational mob mentality that becomes the center of the plot.

In any case, these movies are box office champions which mean someone is watching them. Whether it be out of curiosity or utter completionism, people want to know what happens in the end. Lucky for them “ends” is literally in the title of this chapter.

Total Film also reveals that Ends will take place four years after the event of the second film, and Green isn’t giving any hints as to where Michael went.

“We don’t really explain that,” he told the publication. “It’s like: I don’t want to see where Jaws goes to sleep at night when I’m watching a shark movie,” the director says. “I want to see him when he pops up, and he’s got an appetite!”

These exclusive pictures aren’t anything special, but they do provide some inter-buzz until Halloween Ends finally drops on October 14.

Published

on

Shudder just announced that we will be getting The Boulet Brothers Dragula: Titans starting Tuesday, October 25th.

According to Deadline subsequent episodes will be rolling out weekly on both Shudder and AMC+. The series is hosted and created by the popular Boulet Brothers duo and will be ten episodes featuring drag icons from the show’s previous season. They will compete in a grand championship of drag artistry and physical challenges for a $100,000 grand prize, along with the headlining spot on the upcoming world tour and the first ever Dragula Titans crown and title.”

The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans will take place in a haunted mansion dubbed the “underworld.”

“We wanted the show to feel familiar to fans, but we also wanted the set and format to feel elevated from a regular season in order to match the incredible talent of the artists we’ve brought together,” says the Boulet Brothers. “There are so many shocking twists and turns this year that the competitors affectionately renamed the show Gagula during filming, and we really can’t wait for audiences to see it – this show is truly the most compelling content we’ve created to date.”

“The Boulet Brothers and our previous ‘Dragula’ series have attracted a wonderfully passionate, engaged and diverse fanbase and we’re delighted to bring them even more of the content they crave with this next competition series, especially during our biggest, most celebrated month of the year,” added Craig Engler, GM of Shudder.

Along with returning fan-favorite competitors (to be announced at a later date), there will also be a rotating cast of guest judges from the show’s past and present, including Cassandra Peterson (Elvira), Harvey Guillen (What We Do In The Shadows), Justin Simien (director of Disney’s upcoming Haunted Mansion film), David Dastmalchian (Dune, Suicide Squad), pop metal princess Poppy, drag superstars Alaska and Katya, and horror royalty Joe Bob Briggs (Last Drive In), Bonnie Aarons (The Nun) and Barbara Crampton (Reanimator, Jakob’s Wife), among them.

The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans is the first project to be rolled out as part of the duo’s multi-project deal with Shudder.
