Ana “Anabella9” Cruz Nazario
The timeless Hispanic legend comes to terrifying life in “The Curse of La Llorona.” She is The Weeping Woman and those who hear her death call in the night are doomed. She creeps in the shadows and preys on the children, desperate to replace her own. In 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking the night—and the children. 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.
Slow with Few Thrills The Curse of La Llorona was disappointing for me. First of all, I thought that the evildoer did not look very realistic. It was if she was picked off of the streets on Halloween night, wearing generic makeup and a torn costume from Wal-Mart. I felt that the origin of the folk tale was not explained well. I also thought that the plot puttered along and contained very few scares along its way. I felt that the ending of the movie was hogwash for a contemporary legend!
