In a small Regal Cinema in Carrollton, Georgia on the opening weekend of the blockbuster record breaking Avengers: Endgame, I had the opportunity to have a nearly private screening of the most recent chapter in the Conjuring Universe; The Curse of La Llorona.
Prior to my viewing of this movie, I had never seen a Conjuring film. Not that you need to have seen any of the previous movies to enjoy this film, but your ability to enjoy it has a lot to do with your anticipation of it. My anticipation was that this was a typical horror film, and that simply is not the case.
Luckily, I had a friend with me, who enlightened me that the tone of this movie was completely in line with those of the previous films. Without that knowledge, I would have said that this was a flop of a film. However, I got exactly from it what the various involved artist wanted me to get and also what is expected of the fans of the Conjuring Universe.
Linda Cardellini as Anna, had a fantastic performance, as she has typically done in every character that she has attempted to portray. As far as characters go, My Fav of the Day Award goes to Raymond Cruz as Rafael.
In short, it’s worth a watch but it will not reach my, “should have seen it on the big screen” list for 2019. Save those monies and watch it at home.
