La Llorona

La Llorona

Directed by Jayro Bustamante

Accused of the genocide of Mayan people, retired general Enrique is trapped in his home by massive protests. Abandoned by his staff, the indignant old man and his family must face the devastating truth of his actions and the growing sense that a wrathful supernatural force is targeting them for his crimes. Acclaimed filmmaker Jayro Bustamante presents an urgent and frightening reimagining of the iconic Latin American fable. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.

In this bold new vision of La Llorona, a retired war criminal believes a wrathful supernatural force is targeting him.

Cast: María Mercedes Coroy, Margarita Kenefic, Sabrina de la Hoz, Julio Diaz

After taking a Chicano lit course and reading how Gloria Anzaldua interprets the La Llorona legend, I think this movie is a brilliant modern take of the tale. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that this movie is primarily a drama with horror elements. I recommend it!

Incredible film which focuses on the true horrors of the world and the denial by those who benefit from such atrocities.

Very boring. Not scary. Does it have smart political subtext? Sure. But if you want horror, look elsewhere

More than horror, this is a excellent drama with a political message of complaint about the killings in Guatemala. Love it!
