His character has to be the most pointless character I've ever seen on film, he actually just walks off at one point during the final 'terrifying act', probably to phone his agent or the dole office as that's were he'll be headed after that performance.

Not scary, very dull and boring at even 95 minutes.

Tears of boredom.

Another boring horror movie .

Very Thrilling and Creepy .

Character reactions, decisions and motivations were also fully predictable and never surprised.

Bullet points, Nice fast paced, decent enough movie with alot of jump scares, Easter egg tie ins to The Conjuring universe, aswell as the production style.

In conclusion, this movie is a total failure, super boring and very predictable.

Run-of-the-mill cliche horror with jump scares you see coming a mile off.

This is boring, and I cannot recommend.

The film does lack in trying to be scary with a direction that is cliché like any other supernatural horror film.

Jump scare after jump scare that were all predictable!

A bland predictable horror movie that gets predictable and uninteresting.

Don't waste your time watching this trash.

Personally the last few movies based in the conjuring universe have been really boring and I feel like there is a lack of substance.

And kind of boring.

It's not near as horrible as The Nun, and honestly, that's a good compliment for such a typical and cliche horror flick.

Linda is such a great actress, but from the kids to even La Llorona herself was predictable, underwhelming and not at all scary.


Having scenes set up for a predictable jump scare which doesn't make it jump scare when you notice it coming.

Not a silly one but kind of scary and entertaining at the same time, do not listen to the bad reviews, got all of what you need to be on the edge of your seat.

Good movie but way to predictable, use of jump scares is excessive to the point of being anticlimactic.

The story development was very dull with expected jumpscares.

I enjoyed it.

As a Mexican, I know a lot of better versions to the legend and this movie felt a lot more like a bad cliche and following the stereotype of Mexican characters.

Cliche bonanza in a boring snooze .

It felt like the make-up and special effects for her were just too mundane and generic.

It was a waste of time and money

The actual setup to this film is drawn out so much that the story gets dull.

Only thing worth watching/ mentioning is the little girl in the movie.

Predictable scare scenes, the stupid action the kid does to mess it up, the curandero that fights the ghost outside the church.

This was boring and predictable.

The jump scares are super predictable.

I enjoyed it and would buy it on DVD.

The route that the story goes is predictable.

I really enjoyed it.

Don't waste your time or money.

I highly recommended if you hated Nun or Annabelle boring or slow as those films if you didn't like them give this a try if your massive horror person it's totally worth it to check it out if you love full on horror this is it, watch it with your lights out if you ever watch it with your lights on it won't make sense at all because you will end up like chicken.

Playing out like an extended Supernatural episode-the film even makes use of "salt" lines-this an utterly predictable ghost story that misappropriates a Mexican folktale for popcorn fun.

Just bad, no suspense, no mystery, bad story and even predictable.

This horror movie not making me jump scare at all, very predictable and i'm get to used with the same evil makeup.

It was a waste of my money and time .

It has a boring atmosphere and it doesn't scare you.

Don't loss your money, don't waste your time.

I literally walked out of this mess after 24 minutes.

But, a few times, I was annoyed by the predictable script, especially this strange appetite for a sadistic play with her prey like a cat with a dying mouse, while La Llorona could easily get rid of these kids.

Worst movie of the franchise.

I think Linda Cardellini's acting was very believable, there was a lot of jump scares and intense scenes.

It follows the same cliché in almost every supernatural horror movie.

So far, this is the most entertaining movie I've seen in 2019 in theaters.

A create of Conjuring filmaker, but the curse still adapted equal with horror type even unexpected scene makes the film

No originality, no plot and no fear for that matter.

I found this intriguing though, because Anna is Caucasian.

Don't waste your money.

I enjoyed it.

While the storyline and script wasn't exactly groundbreaking or innovative, it was still thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining, especially because it had that archetypical horror style and formula to it.

Creepy Llorona but dragged down by a slow direction.

Boring & not scary at all.

Things that were just illogical and predictable.

Well it served it's purpose, it was entertaining for an hour and a half.

However, all in all, then "The Curse of La Llorona" was enjoyable and entertaining.

Frights are predictable and often uninteresting.

The main issue is that it's boring, though.

what a boring movie - what a shame .

Dull .

The whole movie is totally boring, almost every part of the movie is non-horror.

The characters (minus the fallen priest) were dull and uninteresting despite good performances, and the scares were scarce rather than scary.

I have really enjoyed the conjuring series of films, but this film kept me on the edge of my seat.

The film does drag for the first half hour of the movie which can be a little boring.

Very enjoyable and very funny.

Rather than creating a generic and predictable story of an American family and their struggle with La Llorona, the screenwriters should have considered investing more time in proper research and creative writing.

Lack of plot.

because this was more of horror rather making a 2 hour slow as drama less horror Annabelle films i am tried of horror movies getting 2 hour slow pacing films just like Annabelle films witch i rather watch Conjuring movies and Nun and this more.

Boring .

Flat, boring and filled with clichés .

A dreadfully predictable film.

Predictable right from the bloody start.

This is how much I was bored, I was noticing color gradients.

I actually ended up falling asleep it's shame how unscary this movie portrays the weeping woman.

I'm happy that as a horror film this was at least more entertaining than the utter disappointment that was Pet Sematary.

Third thing is that the movie is a cliché, you have your cliché kids that will get everyone killed to get their toy and your cliché church that will tell you that they can't help you but they'll send you to normally a ghost investigator but this time it was a shaman and many more.

Most predictable , unbelievable garbage!

Worst Movie Ever.

The ending is predictable, just like EVERY other horror movie.

Worst movie of 2019 so far .

This is what this great horror film does, it put you in the shoes of the family with a mother trying everything in her power to protect her children from an evil spirit, it gets intense and frightening and the tension builds up.


Yet, still manages to be the more entertaining entry into this prolonged franchise.

I left after 45 minutes in theatre because I couldn't take it anymore.

Don't waste your time .

The set pieces felt repetitive.

the grumpy old man found this pretty unscary, i jolted 2 or 3 times, but bthe waiting game for obvious scares becomes boring.

Worth the Watch .

I was falling asleep during the movie buy the dang Gritona kept waking me lol.

Downfalls for me were, The scares were very predictable As typical in most horror movies the responses from the actors to events going on around them was somewhat dumbfounding.

In addition, in all these different situations, the evil spirit always seems to have the right powers to get hold of its victims, which often also simply ends with a predictable jump scare.

Don't waste your time.

Every single jumpscare is predictable.

I felt as though I was sitting there for about 2 hours and half of that time I was fairly bored.

Hands down, this GOTTA be the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life..Cheap cast with extremely bad acting.. Poor attempts of many, many unnecessary jump scares, unlogical scenes such as leaving child who was locked in a closet for who knows how long in a dark room in abandoned hospital with nobody guarding them.

just like pointless franchise of Annabelle films no point of making franchise and first film was nothing it wasn't that scary, it wasn't full on horror, with Nun and La Llorona was full on horror a real horror movie.

Boring .

The most uneventful and cliche film in the Conjuring universe that lacked story and solid scares.

awesome, entertaining movie .

Boring, unscary, worse than the nun, James just come back and write these movies, your universe is going stale without you.

boring .

Definately worth watching with a few pretty good jump scares.

It's uninteresting, boring and the plot is so thin.

Worst movie that i watch in cinema not only worst movie worst horror movie.

I fell asleep...

average, predictable ...

With egregious CGI, ubiquitous slamming doors, and predictable jump scares, this movie is no better than the train wreck that was Sony's Slenderman.

Main lead is terrible and it's very predictable.

I was thoroughly bored out of my mind.

Plot was boring the story didn't have a lot of sense.

but their is a lot of scary scenes in movie that was well made i liked it, it looked scary more intense of terrifying their is.

This has every single horror cliche you can imagine chucked in.

That's only possible because the movie is, by and large, an utter bore.

Predictable music, the window rolls down, the girl in the bath tub is targeted because they're all down stairs and she just wanders off to take a bath?!?

No plot twists.

boring and not compact plot make me sleepy .

Don't waste your money on this like I did.

Lackluster script by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis is only hindered by cliche-riddled direction by Michael Chaves.

There are several long shots which are meant to build tension but just end up being dull.

There was so much opportunity to dig deeper into Mexican catholic superstitions but, they chose to settle on cheap cliche arms stretched out apparition.

The first 5 mins were entertaining then it went down the pan.

Craving for cheap adrenaline shots, the overridden melodrama and irrelevant slow motion takes are clearly off putting.

However, I will say that this 2019 "The Curse of La Llorona" by director Michael Chaves was actually one of the more interesting and entertaining movies to color this shared universe of horror movies.

Predictable scenarios.

In summary, the films feels reductive, boring and silly, and cannot remember a single scary part on it.

This film follows every predictable horror formula imaginable and had one of the bare bones plots.

One of the worst horrors i've ever watched It's very predictable and not scary at all.

I enjoyed it, decent horror movie and would recommend it.

It is creepy and formulaic.

Enjoyable .

No story at all.

There were quite a few plot holes that keeps me from giving it a 10, but it was very entertaining.

A part from its setting which takes place in 1973, the movie some times drags along, nothing happens and when it does its the usual scar and jump that we are all used to, in the end very predictable.

However, I still find this movie entertaining and a lot of fun to watch.

The first half hour of the film is slow and boring.

I found the setting of 1970s LA quite bland even though it shouldn't have been and the characters generally uninteresting including the monster.

These are still heavy on the cliche of "character turning her head, big ugly monster face screams and the score goes from silence to screeching volume.

But the plot is an easy, predictable play with some cheapass jumpscares.

) releases a relentless amount of jump scares that were both predictable and tamer than a domestic cat.

It was quite predictable as to what was going to happen next, although the suspense was cleverly built despite this.

He also delivers some effective and innovative jump scares, even though most of them still follow an annoyingly predictable timing.

Some good scary scenes which will make you jump and also drawn out horror.

There were two moments where a certain character trying to make a Joke in an intense moment, they joke kind of fell flat and didn't work.

Really enjoyed it .

There are a few nice shots, but on a whole the cinematography is uninteresting, not to mention the lighting.

These details just added greater understanding into why La llorona does what she does and the aftermath of this led for a very entertaining movie.

Enjoyed it very much!

This film did a brilliant job with keeping you on the edge of your seat due to the long dragged out scenes with no sound at all, this made you nervous about what was going to happen as you dont know whats going to attack the family.

Great horror thrilling .

It was way too predictable .

The children, terrified out of their minds, tell their mother that nothing happened after being attacked.

Though it picks up in the last act, this movie is rather dull.

This one stands on its own and is worth the watch.

I'd give it another chance if my Hispanic culture was given justice for this slow boring film.

Even though every character in this movie makes questionable decisions that lead to avoidable events (something inevitable in horror films), Anna is a compelling and courageous woman, who only wants to do what's best for any children, not only their own.

Its fine I guess, I never really was a fan of the conjuring series, but it was entertaining, I never got scared of it though, I really wish the movie was about the actual legend than about a forgettable family suffering from the legend, I laughed Amit in the movie theatre though, so it was worth it...

The story was also boring.. also la llorona could have been designed better to make it at least look more realistic :) .. one of the worst horror movies I've seen..

A classic and enjoyable horror flick for the fans.

I thought La Llorona was just okay but its about as cliche and predictable as you would expect.

We had rain and thunder outside, which was part of why I went in to see this movie, but I now understand that was only God feeding me boring "entertainment" to teach me a lesson about bringing an umbrella with at all times.

The script was also bland and cliche.

Not only the worst of the "Conjuring universe" movies, but also a really bland, tv-production variety effort.

There was one moment that was a little too predictable, which I think the audience will see coming.

This is just another banal ghost story to add to the trash heap of failures.

So Dull .

Acting wasn't anything special to say the least, yet i liked Linda Cardellini's performance - she is the best thing about this boring and not scary flick.

But it is definitely cliché.

It might feel a little bit repetitive at times and plays out like a short film stretched out to a feature length film (best comparison I can give you is Lights Out, directed by David F.

Cringe comedic-like acting, big background story with no significance to the climax/whole plot, and the mechanism of La Llorona in haunting, confusing me while been scared by many one-shot jumpscares that unable to increase the horror.


Don't waste your time...!!!

It does make up for it with a dark thrilling climax.

Also I'm going on record to say this isn't apart of the Conjuring Universe, the only thing connected this movie to the conjuring is a throw away scene where the priest talks about Annabelle, which makes this more of a movie that happens to have a pointless advertisement for the Conjuring movie

There's also a brief, entirely unnecessary flashback to explain these arbitrary connections to uninitiated audience members that's so ham-fisted, it's probably the most entertaining moment of the flick.

Anyway, it is a nice one time watch movie with lots of thrilling & horror moments.

Generic and formulaic.

extremely boring with no real plot .

Boring 😴 .

Scared came off predictable and then wasn't I like that balance.

The Nun was more entertaining than this one and we all know how bad The Nun was.

This continues for quite a lot of the movie and it really made it hard to stay in the suspenseful mood the film was trying to achieve.

Suspenseful from beginning to end.

Save your money .

predictable and boring, if you like substance then stay away from this film!!

Every cliché we have seen in all those films were combined in La Llorona.

The Curse Of LloronaThis was just another formulaic "one-trick-pony" horror movie.

This way the film also comes across as predictable, because you have seen most of the situations in the film better in other horror films.

Nevertheless, it's enjoyable.

Worth watching once.

Boring, predictable and even full of bad taste.

I went here with my parents, they really liked it, it was very entertaining for us, very nice sfx, funny moments, the kids acting is amazing, the story is very well said, maybe its only problem was being linked to the conjuring universe, because everyone relates it to the nun, but this is way better than the nun which was veeeery boring, this had very nice shots with lots of tension.

Even at running time 1 h 29 min it dragged and was a bit funny in a moments when it shouldn't have been.

The Curse of La Llorona cries itself to sleep with ineffective jump scares and a repetitive plot.

Formulaic rubbish .

I went into this movie with no background or trailer references l, so for myself it was entertaining and funny moments of laughter.

This movie was so boring, I fell asleep 30 minutes into the movie.

A bit scary, a bit formulaic.
