Movie Info

A malevolent spirit bent on vengeance, stalks a young family visiting Mexico. Andrew, Carly and their son Danny travel to an isolated hacienda in Mexico for a much needed vacation. As they enter the town, signs showing missing children set an ominous tone. The family learns of the legend of "La Llorona," the evil spirit of a distraught mother who lurks near the water's edge and strikes fear in the hearts of all who see her. La Llorona torments the family mercilessly, snatching Danny and trapping him in a netherworld between the living and the dead. Aided by the resourceful taxi driver Jorge (Danny Trejo, Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn) the family races to save their only child, navigating the foreboding countryside held by menacing cartel thugs. Gaining strength and power and leaving a path of death and destruction in her wake, La Llorona is seemingly unstoppable. But a secret from Carly's past may provide an opportunity to finally defeat the spirit.

Critic Reviews for The Legend of La Llorona

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (3)

[Trejo] and most of the rest of the cast deliver their lines with the flat, enthusiasm-free cadences of an ensemble cheesed off with the size of their paycheques and the quality of the catering.

Queue it up, watch the movie. Danny Trejo's in it.

This umpteenth time is not a charm.

January 6, 2022 | Full Review…

This cheesy horror tale, which cashes in on a monster made famous in bigger-budget movies, glides confidently into the "so bad, it's good" realm, making ill-advised choices in nearly every capacity.

The Legend of La Llorona is not special by any means, nor is it particularly scary, but B horror movie fans know what to expect from a film like this.

January 21, 2022 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

... at least the film looks good with some genuinely well-designed sets here and there and some good images captured throughout, just nothing exactly stunning or original here.
