La Llorona movie review

Melissa Cervantes

“The Curse of the Llorona” directed by Michael Chaves is categorized as a supernatural horror and mystery type.. The movie takes place in the 1970s in Los Angeles, California. Anna Tate- Garcia, a social worker and single mother of 2 children ( Chris and Samantha) is one of the main characters. Anna is working on the case of a troubled mother who is suspected of child endangerment. A legendary ghost La Llorona is stalking the nights. Anna the social worker and her own kids Chris and Samantha are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. In order for them to survive La Llorona‚Äôs problems, they call Rafael who is known for spiritual help.

One of my most enjoyable moments is when La Llorona appears behind the unsuspecting little girl (Samantha) scrubbing her hair and slowly starts to drown her. However, Samantha thinks it is her mom who is doing it. The Curse of La Llorona does not translate the Spanish language dialogue, which is kind of a treat for Spanish speakers in the audience. The real story of La Llorona happened in Mexico but in the movie, it took place in Los Angeles which was not believable. This movie was very thrilling and mysterious, keeping the audience on their toes. This movie is highly recommended according to common sense media where it stands at 90%, and personally, I would give it the same rate.
