" Kilometre 31" (Kilómetro 31 or km 31) is a 2007 Mexican horror film, written and directed by Rigoberto Castañeda. The film is inspired by the Crying Woman legend (la Llorona) and legends about highway ghosts (very popular in México). The KM 31 picture aims to combine the drama and the horror genre, a psychological horror film that is clearly influenced by the great classics such as The Shining, The Exorcist, The Omen as well as recent movies such as The Ring and The Others.
