Same ole, same ole; nothing new. The movie jumps right into the plot. Really no build up, no character development, so it makes it hard to care for the main characters. Only a brief explanation as to why La Llorona is the way she is.

Was a pretty good movie with the scenes that can cause you to flinch a little. The visuals were good but I feel they could have been better when it comes to creating the realistic feel and making llorona look better

Better than what the reviews are giving it. Had some good parts, had a few flinch in your chair spots, overall it was worth seeing with the $5 credit Atom offered.

Please don’t waste your time and money. Anyone that thought this was a good movie is putting in false reviews or getting paid for good reviews. The movie isn’t scary at all, in fact at times it’s comical. The premise of the movie is good but they do not execute the movie well at all. I feel bad for the actress that tried so hard to make a decent movie. They never explain why La Llorona is after the first ladies kids. The ‘ exorcism’ scenes are dumb and La Llorona has to be the most inapt killer in movie history...

Some parts were okay but the rest was blah. They show her A BUNCH of times to the point that seeing her just makes you laugh. The comedic relief was a nice plus.

Didn't understand how the lady began a witch. storybsaid that she kill her two sons because her husband cheated on her with a younger girl. ok, so? Does that turn her into a witch. Also, the white child service lady is so stupid. she was given all the clues about the witch, even when her childresn was attacked, but she still act like she didn't know what was going on. very silly in my opinion!

The movie was kind of slow. There has to be another way to get rid of evil spirits instead of the typical bless cross to the chest. I’m a hardcore horror movie watcher and this one was kind of disappointing.

Fantastic movie. The way a horror movie should be. A plot that's not too slow. Good plot. A possible way to fight the evil and not too east for the good or bad to win. Definitely buying on DVD and maybe even Blu Ray when it comes out.

Best horror film I ever seen & I’ve seen plenty ! 10/10 would recommend people to take the time to watch this movie! Super great! Not an ordinary regular scary movie. This one will make you jump & scream. As a Latina I felt the tells that I grew up hearing come to life in a movie! #basedonatruemexicanevent!

I think this is a movie to hold us over until the new Annabel comes out, but: The good: semi fresh folk lore type story(only because it’s of a Mexican origin, not many of those), still... not much diff than any other evil spirit lady that takes kids type of movie. There was a verrry quick nod to the Annabel franchise in the movie... The bad: like I mentioned above, it’s your run of the mill , evil spirit lady in a dress coming for a family/single parents kids. I don’t know how connected this movie is to the Annabel/conjuring/insidious universe aside from the 5 seconds of showing Annabel and the priest talking about getting help from “the church” (basically referring to the husband and wife team from the conjuring) but I guess we’ll see if they mention this “tale” in the new Annabel. 95% of all the times La Llorona appears on screen it’s a quick jump scare(most of the movie is cliche anyway) Overall: all the kids were pretty good actors. The adults were standard as well.

Ok movie but wish I didn’t pay to see it. Def one that could’ve waited to be seen on Netflix. Run of the mill ghost/demon killing people. The theatre had great surround sound which helped with some of the more intense scenes. Sound was incredible! The theatre made the movie worth seeing. Not really scary at all. Cast was good.

Not horrible but not scary either. It’s suspenseful enough to put you on the edge of your seat at the end. The jump scares were predictable. Good as a suspenseful movie but not scary

They could have based it Mexico where it originated, with a Hispanic cast who’s Spanish was better, look I’m Mexican and I grew up with stories of la llorona its not a joke, I feel like her cries could have been more intense and the story could have been better.

Not scary at all, didn’t like that it had no background. How did she get to Los Ángeles? How did it all start? The original story takes place in Mexico, what does she have to do with Annabelle? How are they even connected when one is American and the other Mexican? I did not like it at all, it did however have lots of jokes and it was funny. Could have waited to see it on redbox.

Though it wasn’t as scary as the other movies in the Conjuring Universe, it was still an okay horror movie. It was scary-ish but not too scary. I’d recommend it for ages 13 and up.

The movie started out way too slow for a Horror film, and each "jump scare" was unfortunately terrible. Not a must see for horror fans.

It isn’t to say that The Curse of La Llorona is bad; it definitely had the crowd I watched it with screaming in horrified delight and laughing at just the right moments. But it lacks any cultural understanding of its subject and is a missed opportunity to connect to the plethora of ghost stories the Latino culture contains in its soul. Que pena!

The Curse Of La Llorona is haunted by a reliance on musty horror tropes. This competent but derivative exorcism film feels like multiplex filler for undemanding audiences who will happily sample any new addition to the Conjuring cinematic universe.
