La Nahuala

There is a wonderful children’s film produced in Mexico called La Leyenda de la Nahuala. Leo San Juan, a 9-year-old boy, has been terrorized all his life by the scary stories his older brother always taunts him with. Among these stories is “The Legend of the Nahuala”, according to which a house in the neighborhood is possessed by an evil spirit Nahual that took over the body of the family cook. Now, the Nahuala is waiting for the soul of an innocent child and a powerful amulet to be restored to his full power. The adventures occur right around the Day of the Dead in Mexico, where dead ancestors and loved ones are celebrated.

As a Spanish teacher I am thrilled to find relevant and authentic films to show my students, instead of simply showing dubbed Disney films. With this kind of film there is so much more that can be taught than simple grammatical structures.

This beautiful Calavera skin from Nuuna can invoke awe or terror. I bet that family cook wants her body back.

    Sweetie I LOVE LOVE LOVE this image so much. It is gorgeous, pure and simple… There is a haunted beauty to this pic and you really know how to rock your fantasy side!

Oriencor

Fantasy Faire is still over a month away, but the teasers and posters are making me want to get fantastical! La Petite Morte has a new Goth skin available at Genre, from the Madison line. It reminded me of Oriencor, the ironically white witch from Meredith Ann Pierce’s fabulous Darkangel trilogy. Oriencor is heartless and utterly evil, taking over the world little by little by drinking the souls of men, women and children. Some she merely kills, others she turns into vampyres. She keeps the souls in vials around her neck until she is in need of power. If you have time for some fun reading and enjoy Earthsea-esque fantasy, check it out. And hope one of her vampyres doesn’t come for you.
