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
This is a different kind of horror movie. No jump scares. No gore. Just uneasiness amid tension of political controversy and real-life genocides of the Mayan people. The fact that General Enrique's paranoia plays a role also shows a psychological aspect to the horror. The weeping woman mythos is used effectively well, ratcheting up the tension to another level. I cannot recommend this enough. Go out of your way to see this Peabody-nominated masterpiece.
A tasteful Piece, influenced by social justice and black magic. The story is slow but its worth the wait.
Heartbreaking tale of revenge against a genocidal general. Not traditional horror, no jump scares, but an excellent film with social justice at its core.
Wow! What a movie! This is WAY better than the 2019 version from “The Conjuring universe”
