The Curse of La Llorona – Get Your Eggs Ready

la llorona.jpg

Few things beat a packed theater during the opening weekend of a horror flick. I did not hear very good things about La Llorona and my expectations were fairly low. But… I was pleasantly surprised. Granted, if I had gone to see it two weeks from now without that special sort of energy, I may feel a little differently tonight. But, that’s not the case and I’d say it was a lot of fun. Parts of it felt somewhat formulaic, but the theater was filled with screams, gasps, giggles and collective sharp anticipatory intakes of air, the kind that are only audible because dozens of people are doing it in unison. And for me, that’s always been my favorite kind of horror. The stuff that makes you feel like a kid, sitting in a theater, snacks at the ready, laughing your head off with your friends at whoever jumped the highest or screamed the loudest.

The legend of La Llorona is Mexican folklore, and initially I was confused as to why the lead role was not filled by a Latina. But the storyline made it make sense, and I suppose by having the lead character not be Latina, the audience was explained the legend as the lead character was learning about it in that inevitable expositional monologue.

And now, for some spoilers. Stop here if you haven’t watched the movie yet…

Time to Play! Child’s Play (2019) Full Trailer is heeeere

As a rule, reboots and revamps are not my favorite. There’s so much new material begging to be made and classics are classics because they fucking rule. This one does look pretty cool, though. Looks like they incorporated enough updated for 2019 elements (smart phone/smart toy terror) to make it fresh but still fun and not deviating from the original too much. What do you guys think?
