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.
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
