The Curse of La Llorona

 

MFC Review

 


 

The Curse of La Llorona (2019) is the debut film of director Michael Chaves, inspired by the old Latin American legend of the spectrum that cries to attract helpless children.

 

Starring Linda Cardellini (Avengers: Endgame, 2019), The Curse of La Llorona is the sixth installment in the film universe of The Conjuring, started by The Conjuring (2013) from the visionary horror (2013), by John R. Leonetti, and The Nun (2018), by Corin Hardy.

 

Although in the first act we are offered an interesting story, in the second act the rhythm begins to decline, going from a promising proposal to a typical horror movie, anxious to scare the audience with surprise blows instead of the progress of the story, becoming a screamer without much to add to the genre. A poorly written script causes scenes to rely upon the actor’s skills, whose performances are the strong point

 

It has already been confirmed that Michael Chaves will direct The Conjuring 3, a film that will be released in 2020 as the eighth installment of the franchise.

 

The horror cinema has been in a complicated position for some time, with only some titles standing out as good. We hope that in the future this franchise brings us proposals much like to its first movies and that raise the standards of the genre.
