The Film Contained a Few Memorable Moments, but It Largely Revolved Around La Llorona Screaming in The Dark and From Hidden Areas. You’ll Leap, but You Won’t Be Terrified. It Doesn’t Have the Potential to Be a True Horror Story.
The Tradition of La Llorona Has Been Passed Down Through the Generations and Gives You the Creeps. However, the Mythology Is Not Exaggerated in The Film.
You Hear Weeping, but You Won’t Understand Why It’s Frightening Unless You Know the Legend. According to One Version of The Story, Hearing Weeping from Afar Indicates that La Llorona Is Close By. if It Sounds Like It’s Coming from Close By, It’s Because She’s Far Away.
