The Curse of La Llorona (2019)

Michael Chaves directs Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz and Patricia Velasquez in this housebound horror where a single mother social worker uncovers a child killing curse.

For a spin-off PG-13 horror this has a strong visual sense and tries for dread rather than constant jumps. It just never is particularly scary. Cardinelli makes for a winning lead and rocks her seventies vintage wardrobe. Doesn’t hang around long enough to be bad.
