 La Maldicion De La Llorona

Thanks to Internet linguistic courses, I translated La Maldicion De La Llorona, the title of this 2007 movie, to be The Maldicion De La Llorona. (I don’t know what a “de la” is, though. Hey, I’M WORKING ON IT.)

 La Maldicion De La Llorona

Regardless, this Curse of the Crying Woman remake sucks hard enough to be a vacuum cleaner. A naked young chick tries to kill herself and is found by a supermodel mail carrier who was dropping off valuable coupons and carpet cleaning offers. Instead of taking the girl to the hospital (slit wrists, deep gouges on her back, bad breath), her aunt, uncle and hot same-age/chest size cousin come over to take care of her.

But the girl has had a psychotic break, claiming there is a vengeful spirit hanging out in the closet of the abandoned house in the middle of an East L.A. Cul-de-sac. For no other reason than to introduce something “horror” into the plodding plot, a brain wrapped in newspaper is found in the garage. “Discard it,” says the aunt, noting its stink is making the odoriferous house even more so.

The suicidal gal has a few more “episodes” and wants her aunt to kill her baby (not yet born, but no doubt hiding from being included in this boneheaded piece of dumbness’ movie credits). The mail carrier shows up again to offer an ominous warning — and to drop off 2-for-1 tanning discount fliers. (Which brings up several insightful questions: If the house was abandoned, then why was she delivering mail to it? Secondly, since when does a mail carrier walk right into the house to drop off the mail? I’m sure there are other questions, but that’s all I could think of right now. I’ll get back to you.)

Shot entirely in daylight, the blood inflicted by Llorona looks pink when it dries within seconds. The vengeful spirit looks a lot like the suicidal gal, but sporting a long rubber tongue with bumps on it. All shot on stunning hand-held quality video, La Maldicion (or THE Maldicion) once again proves that friends shouldn’t let friends make movies.

P.S. There have been many La Maldicion De La Llorona movies through out he ages, as represented by the key art I “borrowed” from the “Internet.” Also, the latest version misspells the title altogether. Who can’t spell  La Maldicion De La Llorona correctly on the first dozen tries?
