Unoriginal Collection of Clichés
27 August 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"The Curse of La Llorona" is a horror film with beautiful cinematography and atmosphere. The cast is not bad and the effects are also good. Unfortunately, the story is absolutely unoriginal, indeed a great collection of clichés. The film gives the sensation of Deja vu and the viewer feels that he or she has already seen it all before, frustrating those with expectation of watching a creepy horror movie. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "A Maldição da Chorona" ("The Curse of the Weeping Woman")
