THE LEGEND OF LA LLORONA REVIEW

 


While vacationing in Mexico, a couple discovers their son’s disappearance is tied to a supernatural curse.


Starring: Autumn Reeser, Danny Trejo, and Antonio Cupo


Directed by: Patricia Harris Seeley


Written by: Cameron Larson and Jose Prendes


  “The Legend of La Llorona” continues to grow in another telling of her story. Carly (Autumn Reeser) and her husband Andrew (Antonio Cupo) have decided to take a vacation to Mexico with their young son Danny (Nicolas Madrazo). Their taxi driver Jorge (Danny Trejo) warns them to stay at the hotel, and away from places where the cartel might be. While the cartel is definitely a threat, they’re about to have something much worse to worry about.

  While taking a walk by a waterway, Danny is pulled into it, and dragged away. Luckily his parents are able to rescue him before La Llorona got a chance to take him away. It’s just the first of several attempts she makes to take the boy until she’s finally successful. Now the couple must figure out who or what has taken their son before it’s too late.



  The story of La Llorona has been told several times including a couple of very different recent versions. Now this telling of the story is here to try and bring some scares to horror fans. Unfortunately, it might never get that scary although La Llorona is looking plenty creepy. This version also takes time to visit her story, and why she’s become the way she is. 

  What holds this story back is never feeling Carly and Andrew are a loving couple. Each parent clearly loves Danny, but rarely show true emotions for each other. Yes, they’re grieving the loss of their first child, but still don’t show anything more than some worry for their partner. It’s not the fault of the acting, as Autumn and Antonio are fine in roles, but with the story not giving them time to bond before the chaos begins.



  Legends like “The Legend of La Llorona” are meant to be told over and over again. Each story takes different angles, and some end up better than others. This version has a lot of bumps in the road, but has the right intentions. Diving into her backstory, and having La Llorona coming right after her victims are positives for the story. Shooting her with bullets might not be a good choice, and maybe it needed to spend a little more time introducing this family before La Llorona sets her target on their son. With that, I give it 2 pools of blood.

THE KINDRED REVIEW



A woman suffering from amnesia pieces together the events that led to her father’s suicide, only to be haunted by the ghosts of children that she begins to suspect were murdered by him.


Starring: April Pearson, James Cosmo, and Patrick Bergin


Directed by: Jamie Patterson


Written by: Christian J. Hearn


  It won’t be long before “The Kindred” spirits start to appear. This story is going to grab the audience’s attention right from the start. Helen (April Pearson) is running from an apartment, and down by the street. It seems like she’s running from someone, but before she knows it a body lands in the street. She steps back only to get hit by a car. This lands her in a coma for about a year.

  To much surprise, she was still able to give birth, and her husband is still by her side. Unfortunately the only place for them to go after she leaves the hospital is her father’s apartment. The place where she was running from the night she was hit by her car. The more she stays there the more the past is going to come back to haunt her.



   The film covers a lot of ground before coming to a shocking ending. Helen is going to go through some family drama trying to be a mother to a baby she doesn’t feel bonded to. It’s going to cause problems with her marriage, but soon she’s going to have even bigger ones. The horror starts to work its way in when she starts seeing children in the apartment. They’re going to provide some creepy moments as Helen now has a mystery to solve. The children are going to be a clue along with learning about her father’s past.

  With all the genres at play here it could be confusing at times. However, April along with the rest of the cast put in some good performances to make this one work. From the drama to the scares, she seems to handle everything her character goes through well. Others like James Cosmo, who plays Frank, and Steve Oram, who plays a psychic, do well in their contributions to the story. 


  

“The Kindred” is listed as a thriller, but it has many parts to it. It definitely starts with a bang, and ends in a shocking manner. It has family drama as this couple goes through hard times after Helen’s accident. Horror sets in when ghosts appear, and it’s good they stick around until the end. Most of all, there’s plenty of mysteries to solve starting with why Helen was running in the beginning. It will also cover what happened to the children, and her father before it’s over. The pace along with some good performances help keep the story from getting to confusing. With that, I give it 2.5 pools of blood.
