Editorial Reviews

Review

This film might just keep you from getting a good night's sleep. The film, despite an NYC locale, feels like it belongs alongside some of the classic Japanese horror films over the last decade a rich rising tension. --Moving Pictures Magazine

The Cry is part mystery, thriller and horror all wrapped up in an intense, edge-of-your- seat thrill ride that never lets up til the very last frame. The acting is riveting. It's a thriller that pulls the audience in, you re holding on to something the whole time, gasping for air as each scene gets you closer to the final climax. The Cry is a haunting film that grabs hold, pulls you under and never lets you up to breathe. Highly recommended. Great film-making that will have you talking about it long after it's over. --angelfire.com/pq/moviereviews

Scary, suspenseful and deeply disturbing. The cinematography in this film is beautiful and rich bringing depth and darkness to this supernatural thriller. An artistic and dark horror/thriller about an eerie legend that is very real to a lot of people. If you grew up being warned to come home before dark to avoid being caught by La Llorona then The Cry will bring all of your childhood nightmares to life. Even if you have never heard of La Llorona before, I suspect that, after watching this film, you will think twice before falling asleep on a river bank. --best-horror-movies.com

Product Description

A Medea-like myth that has haunted the Americas for more than 500 years. Now this supernatural spirit hunts again. Over the course of one ominous day this anguished soul terrorizes New York City. As La Llorona escalates her appetite for vengeance, a young mother (Adriana Dominguez) comes under her spell and collides with two detectives (Christian Camargo, Carlos Leon), a witch/curandera (Miriam Col¢n "All the Pretty Horses") - and the many lives La Llorona cuts short. Evocative and suspenseful, this supernatural thriller brings to life the chilling legend of La Llorona, proving there is no rest for a mother who murders her child... and that La Llorona is real.

The acting was okay.
Cody Fn Conner
The movie moves at a snail's pace, though watching a snail would be a heck of a lot more entertaining.
G. Smith
I guess didn't like it much, because I wanted something a bit more -- well, more.

I found the last scene hokey and stupid (what La Llorona says). I wound up saying "Oh, come ON!" out loud. And the curandera's decision, though foreshadowed earlier on, annoyed me. I wanted a conquering heroine.
The film itself isn't bad for a first-time indy filmmaker. But I didn't realize that the original drowning was what those flashes were. There were too many flashes to keep track of for me.
To those who don't like it, please don't sell this film short -- remember that it is is a first film. And thank you, Bernadine for NOT making it a slasher film! Although part of me wishes there had been a segment on how La Llorona got to NYC, the truth is, the legend exists anywhere there are hispanics, so I guess it doesn't matter. But I would have enjoyed it more if it hadn't seemed so much like I was walking into the middle of a story with no beginning or end.
I guess didn't like it much, because I wanted something a bit more -- well, more. But I really did like the extras (the legends, modern youth telling how they remember La Llorona, and a director's short). And I wouldn't mind having this in my library.
I was living in New Mexico, just north of El Paso, Texas when I first heard the story of La Llorona (in the 80s). It was a vague story, and I wanted to know more. That's why I rented this movie. I'm not sorry I did. If this is a first film, and the director does films about what she loves, she's going to be great. I think I'd like to see a series of La Llorona films, and see how she develops using the same theme. Not a series like Freddy Krueger Part XXVII or anything. Just remake the same film with a different vantage point or a bit more plot or character development. That would be interesting to me but probably dull to everyone else. Well, I like Brussels Sprouts and not everyone else does, so to each his own.

Format: DVD
This is another of a half dozen or so poorly acted poorly scripted La Llorona film about the legend of the demon that causes women to drown their own children. The production couldn't hold my interest 3 minutes into the film. They used typical horror piano music and what was that fakey looking red-eye make-up? Horror fans will be bored to tears.

Ugh.

There's hardly any plot at all. The movie moves at a snail's pace, though watching a snail would be a heck of a lot more entertaining. The characters don't act in any way that's realistic. There's really no point to watching this movie. It almost got two stars for the little bit of Spanish practice I got, but for using a sound effect from Star Wars (twice!!), I would give it 0 or less if I could. Please, please watch something else.

and it had a creepy premise, but that was about it. I wanted this movie to be more than it was (um, I guess I want that of most things I watch), something along the line of Japanese Scary Atmospheric Horror, but it fell flat and never got better. It failed on almost all levels, but the music was truly haunting and got under my skin - I just wish the movie tried as hard. The filmmakers will luck out a bit on this one since people will look at the cover and give it a chance, albeit an undeserved one.

"The Cry" has an interesting story, a 500 year old legend about a child-killing demon, but the director does nothing to draw in the viewer. This film is boring, boring, boring. The cinematography is grainy and the story is told in the same murky manner.

There are better horror movies out there.
