La Llorona. The Weeping Woman. A horrifying apparition, caught between Heaven and Hell, trapped in a terrible fate sealed by her own hand. The mere mention of her name has struck terror around the world for generations. In life, she drowned her children in a jealous rage, throwing herself in the churning river after them as she wept in pain. Now her tears are eternal. They are lethal, and those who hear her death call in the night are doomed. La Llorona creeps in the shadows and preys on the children, desperate to replace her own. As the centuries have passed, her desire has grown more voracious…and her methods more terrifying.


The Curse Of La LIorona is most definitely the black sheep of The Conjuring universe. Whereas The Conjuring itself, Annabelle and to a lesser extent The Nun all had pretty unique stories, The Curse Of La LIorona takes the easy path of having ghostly figures constantly screaming at the screen in order to raise the fear level of the audience.

Linda Cardelini try’s her best with the material that she has, and for the most part she’s the best thing in the movie, but with production values that are no better than a cheap movie on televisions The Horror Channel she’s always fighting an uphill battle lifting The Curse Of LIorona above its B movies status.

Never mind there’s always the forthcoming Annabelle Comes Home to look forward to.
