I went into this blind knowing only the title and was expecting supernatural folk horror. Instead it was much more grounded in reality which, to be honest, is much more terrifying to me. I thought it was a very powerful retelling, but as others have said, fits better in the thriller category than traditional horror.
I really enjoyed the movie, it's the best adaptation of La Llorona and I found the political atmosphere with horror a good mix for what's going on in the movie and the real life horrors that has been entangled with it.
Exceptional, beautifully shot, spare and elegant dialogue, a brilliant haunt through and through
well made film with a good story. Not particulary scary , more on horror drama scale
