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
sorry but this is a total garbage.
if you think this is about the urban legend, la llorona, you're partially wrong. this is about the guatamalan genocide, while retelling the urban legend to a very small degree. if you're looking for horror, avoid this movie. if you're looking for story, you could probably skip through. the movie can become dull with its dreadfully long scenes and monotonous dialogues. however, it does a good job shedding a light to this dark part of history
If you're looking for a masterful reinvention of a classic Latin folktale, pay attention to all the 5 skull reviews. If you're looking for something with jump scares, lots of screams, and a certain gore ratio, it's best to look elsewhere because this isn't going to meet your expectations. Margarita Kenefic as Carmen Monteverde is dynamite. I imagine when she was offered the script and read it, she did what any good actor would do: she jumped on it. Women actors of her age are very seldom offered roles of such complexity and energy, and she delivered. Too bad it will likely go unnoticed by the general viewing public.
this was fantastically boring. In all my years of watching the finest film I present to you this...a fine waste of time. as a Latino who grew up afraid of this...I am 100% disappointed. This is fine garbage, sublime trash.
