If you love jump scares this could be the right movie for you! The Curse of La Llorona has a great folklore story, which is really creepy. The movie has a lot of jumps scares and continuous tension. However, the course of the movie is almost the same as other paranormal haunted house movies, which we have seen 1000 times. One of the bigger pluses is acting. Linda Cardellini and Raymond Cruz are both really good and the kids are also very excellent. The CGI is okay and not very special. We suggest: watch it alone or with your partner in the dark with some candlelight and don't forget to turn your volume up!
Ignoring the early 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.
