Movie Monday is a feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.
This week I decided to talk about yet another movie from The Conjuring universe: The Curse of La Llorona.
The Curse of La Llorona
If you follow me for a while, you already know that I always watch movies from The Conjuring universe. I love horrors, and some of those are my favourite (I mean, hello Annabelle!!).
If I’m being honest, The Curse of La Llorona didn’t appeal to me at first, after I’ve seen it’s trailer in the movies.
It was like my guts were telling me I wouldn’t like this one as much as I’d like it to, and the feeling was right.
In my humble opinion, The Curse of La Llorona (or The Curse of a Weeping Woman, as it was released in some countries by that name) was the weakest movie from this franchise.
I wasn’t scared at all, the story wasn’t as captivating either, and overall it was just a solid horror that probably wouldn’t even be popular if it wasn’t the part of this famous universe.
I’m not sure if this is a spoiler, but for one horror, I expected more dead people!
I watched it in the movie theater with my fiance and my father, and neither of them liked it either (but here I have to stress out that they are not horror fans in the first place).
At some point, people (or should I say kids) were even leaving because they didn’t want to continue with the movie, and even though this film was disappointing, it wasn’t that bad! Who knows, maybe they had to be somewhere else or something (even though I doubt that!).
At this point, I think The Conjuring universe is making movies too often, so probably that is the reason why they aren’t strong as the first couple were.
I still can’t wait for Annabelle Comes Home to hit theaters!
Overall, if you are a fan of The Conjuring I would recommend you to watch The Curse of La Llorona, but I would suggest for you to wait until it will be availabele for streaming or out on blu ray.

I find it very annoying when I make the effort to go to the cinema and it turns out the movie is not as good as I hoped it would be.
That’s a very bad sign for the film if people left the theatre! I guess like books though, we can’t love them all.

Yes, it can be annoying but it is what it is!
