Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide.
Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for violence and terror
The legend of La Llorona is a very interesting story that had potential to become a good movie. Unfortunately, this one suffered from showing the monster too much.
The plot wasn’t bad. It would have been more interesting if they showed more of how the legend started, but they had a good idea to go with. What really didn’t work for this movie was showing La Llorona too many times, to the point that she wasn’t scary. What’s always creepy in movies like this is not being able to see their face until the very end, which they had a perfect scene to show her, but by then it was too late.
If you like the Conjuring universe/horror movies, it’s a fun watch, just don’t expect anything special.
