thank God that Mexico caught the horror bug that bit the US
29 July 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Rafael Baledon's "La maldicion de la Llorona" (called "The Curse of the Crying Woman" in English) has the look of a Vincent Price movie, despite everyone speaking Spanish. Portraying a young bride Amelia (Rosita Arenas) and her husband Jaime (Abel Salazar) stopping at the home of her aunt Selma (Rita Macedo), where an evil spirit known as the Crying Woman has taken over, the movie really makes you long for the era. True, the movie's totally corny, but it's as fun as can be. The scenes where Selma's eyes change are actually quite creepy.

So, this is a cool example of the movies from that most unique age of cinema (in every place on earth). All that I can say is: muchas gracias, Mexico!
