Hitting the big screen on April 18th with a modest budget of $9 million, The Curse of La Llorona was poorly received by critics, currently holding a score of 31% Rotten Tomatoes. This is understandable though, as the film mostly consists of predictable jump scares and creepy scenes that are flawed by heavy-handed writing. Even though The Curse of La Llorona doesn't dare stray away from the simplistic formula that the other movies in The Conjuring franchise tend to follow, this addition is perhaps the most unique to date.
Even other movies can't stop talking about Avengers: Endgame.
The Curse of La Llorona is an interesting oddity. With a dead-faced title ghoul and jump scares a-plenty, it certainly feels like an entry in producer James Wan's growing Conjuring Universe. But outside of an appearance by Tony Amendola's Father Perez from Annabelle and a brief reference to "an incident with a doll", La Llorona is mostly a standalone look at Mexico's legendary Weeping Woman. Apparently, that wasn't always the case. In an interview with Gamespot, director Michael Chaves revealed a deleted La Llorona scene would have put the Weeping Woman's trademark necklace …
The Curse of La Llorona topped a very slow Easter weekend box office.
The Conjuring Universe has unquestionably become one of the strongest brands in the Warner Bros. arsenal.
It was a very quiet weekend at the box office as moviegoers appear to be saving up their hard-earned money for multiple trips to see Avengers: Endgame next weekend. The Warner Bros./New Line horror film The Curse of La Llorona topped the weekend with a solid $26.5 million—above expectations—but overall it was the slowest Easter weekend since 2005, when the Ashton Kutcher-led Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner remake topped the charts. Remember that one? No? Alrighty then. La Llorona is a 70s-set horror thriller produced by James Wan with tangential ties to …
In a surprise to pretty much no one, a New Line Cinema horror movie performed well at the box office on Friday. The 1970s-set thriller The Curse of La Llorona—which is kinda-sorta-not-really a Conjuring-verse movie—pulled in $11.8 million on Friday at the box office and is heading for a weekend tally around $25 million. That’s above expectations for the pic, which has struggled critically and earned only a B- CinemaScore from audiences. No matter, the Conjuring-verse spinoff The Nun was a box office smash and that movie bombed with critics. …
The latest film in The Conjuring Universe is here, is it more Annabelle or Annabelle: Creation? Read on to find out.
We break down the shared horror universe that is The Conjuring, Annabelle, The Nun and The Curse of La Llorona, and how these movies all fit together.
This franchise is getting a lot more complex... and that may not be a good thing.
Even if the evil spirits aren't real, the exhaustion from running from them certainly is.
This Conjuring-adjacent horror-thriller treads a lot of familiar ground but still offers some decent chills and even a few (nervous) laughs.
