Highly Suspect Reviews: The Curse of La Llorona

The Curse of La Llorona Movie Review


The Conjuringverse adds another distant corner to its world (albeit, half-heartedly) with The Curse of La Llorona. Taking place in the 70s we meet Anna (Linda Cardellini). She’s a widow with two young children and a social work job that has led her to a family that believes that an old curse has descended upon her children. La Llorona, the weeping ghost who takes children and drowns them (it’s a whole thing), is apparently not a vengeful specter to be fucked with and lo, soon Anna’s two children are marked for a watery grave. What can stop her? Does the church help? Will Latino mysticism come into it? Can we expect to see Annabelle make a shameless cameo? Chris, Beau, and Ben are here to give you the details.


Directed by: Michael Chaves

Starring: Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, Patricia Velásquez, Tony Amendola
