SHE WANTS YOUR CHILDREN.
In 1973, social worker Anna Tate-Garcia (Linda Cardellini) accidentally releases an evil spirit, La Llorona, that immediately goes after her two kids. Another entry in the Conjuring universe (with a brief nod to Annabelle (2014)), this time introducing a ghost inspired by an actual Mexican folk tale, a weeping woman who drowned her children and now wants fresh victims. Cardellini is good as the widow whose home is invaded by the spirit. A few shocks deliver, but not enough to stand out; Raymond Cruz gives a wooden performance as a shaman.
