la llorona

This movie was simply amazing. La llorona a classic Mexican legend meaning nothing more in English but than the weeping lady. I remember my grandmother scaring me to the bathroom when I was a little kid.  The story I was taught is that she’s a life like ghost almost like a curse, accept she is a curse. She fell in love at a young age in a small Mexican village. She had two little boys, ages 2 and 5 but her love didn’t approve of them. She did what any normal mother would do and drowned them in a river to try to win back her mans love. The guy thought she was insane and abandoned her, she regretted it so bad it later led to her death. Kids are taught that if you don’t behave with your elders la llorona will appear and take you as her own to compensate for her missing kids. She shows up crying in a bloody wedding dress wearing white makeup to cover up her bruises. For me this movie was 10x scarier because I could relate to it at a far more personal level. The only thing I don’t like is it took place in LA not in a small village like the true legend. This is one of the few movies I suggest anyone to watch, it has the perfect mix of horror and culture. I give it a 1/10.
