Storyline Heading
Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Mystery Drama - This is a period horror film tangentially connected to The Conjuring and Annabelle series. While there is only mild language and only one extreme moment of gore, the overall tone and depictions of children in jeopardy make the film not for kids. Linda Cardellini fans will enjoy this rare lead showcase for her.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...it isn't very scary. There are a few enjoyable moments...but the plot feels fairly mild, as if one of our traditional dishes was made without enough seasoning. The performances are good despite the script, the design of La Llorona is okay...

NY Post Full Review
Poor The movie's one saving grace — so to speak — is Raymond Cruz...as a priest turned shaman. He, at least, injects a little wry humor into a film that otherwise bored me to tears. ...a repetitive plot, more invested in clichéd spooky sound effects...than in Anna or her imperiled kids...

Rolling Stone Full Review
Below Average ...plays too timid for terror and is too lazily constructed to haunt anyone's dreams. To drum up chills, first-time feature director Michael Chaves resorts to every cheap trick in the book, from squeaky doors and creaky floorboards to a shrieking score...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Poor More Laugh Riot than Fright Fest. ...relies heavily on a near-ceaseless barrage of jump scares, creaking doors and loud, shrieking noises... ...this family is so thinly conceived and their behavior so careless and illogical in the face of a known force of evil that viewers may find themselves less terrified by La Llorona than overjoyed by her reign of terror.
