Really good. Not really scary in the sense of jumó scares but it makes you think!
The most boring movie ever. Feel like I lost the time watching this “movie” which I will never get back
I really enjoyed it! Sometimes, it was a bit slow. But never boring. I'm a bit torn about the La Llorona Lore part. On the one hand I liked the fact, that it wasn't explained and only hinted at, since everyone in the story knew about the urban legend, but on the other hand, as someone who is not familiar with it at all, i would've loved at least a little bit of an explanation. Then again, i was not the intended audience and I know how to use google.
Way better than the 2019 film based on the same legend! Slow burn, but a great representation of the horror of humanity, old age, family, and a ruthless dictator.
