The timeless Hispanic legend comes to terrifying life in "The Curse of La Llorona." She is The Weeping Woman and those who hear her death call in the night are doomed. She creeps in the shadows and preys on the children, desperate to replace her own. In 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking the night--and the children. 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. Their only hope to survive La Llorona's deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Content to coast on jump scares rather than tap into its story's creepy potential, The Curse of La Llorona arrives in theaters already broken.

Scary supernatural horror movie has style but lacks oomph.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Curse of La Llorona is a supernatural horror movie that's connected to the Conjuring universe. It has a lot of spooky scenes and jump scares; children are in peril, and some die. A ghost grabs kids' arms and leaves painful-looking burn marks. A boy falls down the stairs and sprains an arm, and a girl is nearly drowned in a tub. A gun is fired; a man is hit in the shoulder, and some blood is shown. Characters grapple with and attack each other, and the ghost is stabbed with a wooden cross. Language is infrequent but includes a use of "s--t." Adults drink wine in one scene; in a comical moment, a woman glugs the rest of the bottle into her glass. The movie is well-made but perhaps not very memorable; the characters are likable, but the ghost could have been more culturally interesting, rather than appropriated and used as just another movie ghoul.
