What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Curse of La Llorona is a horror movie based on Latin American folklore about a ghost who preys on children. Anna Garcia (Linda Cardellini) is a widowed social worker and mother of two in 1970s Los Angeles. When faced with a mysterious case of two missing kids, she starts seeing parallels between them and the scary supernatural occurrences in her own home. Anna discovers that a demon known as La Llorona, or the "Weeping Woman," is haunting her family. Anna turns to a disillusioned priest and mystic efforts in order to save her children from evil. Expect plenty of violence, jump scares, and children in peril in this horror movie.
