REVIEW: La Llorona full of shocks and surprises

Somehow, this horror film universe just keeps conjuring up the scares.

From Annabelle to Insidious, it’s consistently entertaining, and La Llorona, a loosely connected new chapter, is scare-a-minute.

It may not be as inventive as The Conjuring or as terrifying at the other films, but The Curse of La Llorona stands on its own as a testament to good filmmaking on a low budget.

This folklore story about a supernatural spirit who will steal your children is eerie and unsettling, even within the first 15 minutes.

Steeped in fable and gruesome legend, it’s an interesting film with an intense backstory.

Linda Cardellini is believable and enjoyable in the lead, and Raymond Cruz adds some humour as an unorthodox former priest.

It’s chilling and intense, and is sure to keep you jumping in your seat, even if the thrills aren’t always well-earned.

3.5/5 Stars
