Quotes

George Christensen: [they are watching a girl painting Jokel] That's J'ok-el!
Carmen Romero: Well, that's how they call her here, it's a Mayan name, but most Mexicans call her, La Llorona, The Weeping Woman. We shouldn't speak outloud about her, we shouldn't say her name
[whispering]
Carmen Romero: it's too dangerous. She was born in here, in San Cristobal, she felt in love with a Spanish Soldier, they had two children, and then he left her for another woman. That night, she went insane... She took her children to a lake, and she drowned them...

Even the Music Is Flawed
2 March 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I've been eager to write a review on this site for a while, I even registered a while ago but never wrote anything...but damn! I have to warn you all about this movie.

It's a hellish idiocy fest, the last time I saw a movie with flawed illumination I was like 10 and it was a black & white film. Anyway, the film is about "la llorona" a woman who killed her kids and then drowned herself in the river...the actual legend is really scary, but this movie just makes you laugh with the plot-holes, the bad acting and the general scheme of the movie.

I gave it two starts because the American guy knows how to act and how to convince the public, the rest of the film is just utter garbage ready to receive the vomit of the masses.

A huge stinker if you ask me!!
