Summary: Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide.

Review: I love watching the movies set in the conjuring world they are always so interesting.

The concept of this was really interesting with the folk tale of the weeping woman who comes after children that misbehave trying to replace her children she killed. It was very unique and I enjoyed it.

It wasn’t as scary as I was expecting it to be, but it was still scary in places and had jump scares. It was a fun and interesting watch though and I liked that she never gave up, that demonic ghost or whatever she actually was certainly had determination to take their lives and have them as her own, it was very unique and interesting.

I liked getting to see the faith healer and his process of ridding of the spirits but I found he wasn’t that good at it and it took him so long to figure out how to save the kids and get rid of La LIorna and In the end the kids did it themselves. So though he helped a bit he was outsmarted by the cursed children and their mom.

I wish that we had a bigger connection to the Warrens as we only had the priest from Annabelle. I know this wasn’t technically a conjuring movie just set at the same time and made by the same team but I just would have loved a bit more of a connection.
