Storyline

The urban legend of La Llorona (Spanish for The Weeping Lady), comes to life in this morbid tale about the monstrous, vengeful boogie woman who wanders near bodies of water and wails into the night for her lost children, who she drowned after being spurned and deserted by their father. Miguel, a mercenary, soon learns that La Llorona is anything but a legend, when he is commissioned to locate and return a young runaway to a sleepy riverside town in order to rid it of La Llorona's curse. Miguel is successful in recovering the young girl; however as he is nearing the town he swerves to avoid a figure standing in the road and crashes his car. Awakening, he finds that the young girl is missing and heads towards the town to find her. There he discovers that cashing in might mean cashing out, in a story filled with Latin mythology, irony, and deception. Written by Terrence Williams

Effective Creepiness On A Low Budget!
2 June 2009 | by (New York,NY USA) – See all my reviews

"The River: Legend of La Llorona" sets up the story in a opening prologue by telling the tragic legend and source of the curse that has plagued this small Latino community. The community has been terrorized by a female ghost who is killing off everyone while searching for her children whom she had drowned years before in retaliation to her estranged husband.

"The River: Legend of La Llorona" is part of the "Decrepit Crypt of Nightmares" DVD collection of low budget alternative cinema b-movies. The quality of this collection leaves much to be desired and so I tend to lower my expectations. For the most part the films I've seen so far have been passable with one exception. I thought "The River: Legend of La Llorona" would be one of the worse inputs and was pleasantly surprised at how effective this feature was. It's a really creepy film that works really well despite the obvious low budget. Worth a look!
