Blu-ray Review – The Curse of La Llorona (2019)

The Curse of La Llorona, 2019.

Directed by Michael Chaves.

Starring Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, Marisol Ramirez, Patricia Velasquez, Roman Christou, Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Tony Amendola.

Synopsis:

When a social worker (Linda Cardellini) visits the home of a troubled mother suspected of child neglect, she puts her own family at risk by becoming embroiled in a centuries old curse that attaches itself to her children.

In the grand scale of The Conjuring Universe, Michael Chaves’ The Curse of La Llorona is a much smaller tale as a widowed mother of two has to defend her children from La Llorona, an evil spirit that stalks and kills children. Though the smaller scale works for the most part, The Curse of La Llorona relies too much on cheap and predictable scares to move along its story while the characters aren’t entirely compelling enough to follow. The blu-ray comes with

‘Aquaman’ Director James Wan Returning to Horror Roots for Next Film

Before diving back into the underwater world of Atlantis for Warner Bros. and DC’s “Aquaman 2,” slated to begin pre-production next year, director James Wan will first circle back to the horror genre for his next film. Fans of his deep catalogue of nightmare fuel, from “Saw” to “Insidious” and “The Conjuring,” will have to wait for details, as plot specifics remain under wraps, according to Variety.

Wan conceived of the story idea with his fiancée Ingrid Bisu, star of “The Nun” (which Wan executive-produced) and “Toni Erdmann.” The yet-to-be-titled project hasn’t set up a screenwriter at this time. Wan is not a writer by trade, but has story credits on most of his films.

The news adds to a busy slate for the prolific Hollywood figure, whose commercial track record continues to grow more robust. Wan recently produced such fearsome box-office hits as “The Curse of La Llorona” and “Annabelle Comes Home.

‘Annabelle Comes Home’ Review: Dir. Gary Dauberman (2019)

Annabelle Comes Home review: The Conjuring cinematic universe returns with yet another film based around creepy doll Annabelle.

Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.

First introduced during The Conjuring, the demonic doll Annabelle has spun-off into her own series of films, the first told of her life up to being captured by the Warrens, the second turned the clock back even further, to her origins. Now in the third film in her series, we get a glimpse into the mischief she causes once at ‘home’ in the Warrens’ museum of bad things. Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) head out on yet another paranormal case leaving their daughter Judy (Mckenna Grace) in the charge of babysitter Mary-Ellen (Madison Iseman). Their weekend is crashed by Mary-Ellen’s friend Daniela (Katie Sarife) whom, despite warnings to the contrary, breaks into the Warrens’ room of weird and unknowingly unleashes all manner of malevolent beings,

Moviegoers Believe in ‘Yesterday,’ ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ Sequel Lags Expectations

Moviegoers Believe in ‘Yesterday,’ ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ Sequel Lags Expectations
Tuesday noon marks the exact halfway point of 2019. No one was predicting that grosses would be down some $600 million–nearly 10%–from the 2018 midyear mark. Still to come are a trio of strong performers that should reduce that gap, as this week’s “Spider-Man: Far from Home” (Sony) is followed by Disney’s “The Lion King” and Universal’s “Fast and Furious” offshoot “Hobbs & Shaw.” But this weekend gave further evidence of some pesky issues that won’t go away.

The positive news: an unexpectedly strong launch for Danny Boyle’s “Yesterday” (Universal), the Beatles fantasy that qualifies as one of the most original releases of the year. Written by Richard Curtis (“Love Actually”), the film grossed $17 million, far exceeding pre-opening estimates as low as $10 million. With the boost of a Wednesday opening, “Annabelle Comes Home” (Warner Bros.) came out ahead of “Yesterday” for the weekend, but looks like another case of sequel fatigue.

What’s Coming to Amazon Prime in July 2019

  • Variety
The sun may be shining, but Amazon Prime subscribers probably won’t be coming outside, considering the wealth of titles coming to the streamer next month.

Viewers looking for a touch of nostalgia will be able to binge Peter Farrelly’s “Dumb and Dumber” starring a 14 year-old Jim Carrey or its 2014 sequel “Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd,” beginning July 31. All five of the “Star Trek” movies are also dropping the last day of the month in addition to older classics such as “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Rainmaker.”

A variety of silver-screen favorites and Amazon Originals are also streaming well before the end of the month. Learn some history by watching “Peterloo,” which portrays the 1819 Peterloo Massacre in England after British forces charge through a peaceful pro-democracy rally, or catch the premiere of “The Boys,” which follows five vigilantes on a heroic quest to combat super-heroes using their powers for evil.

James Wan’s Salem’s Lot Remake Will Stick Close To The Source Material

If the average person were to be asked to name Stephen King’s most iconic stories, it could prove difficult counting them on one hand. When I think of the horror legend, tales such as The Shining, It, Christine, Cujo and Carrie immediately flood my mind. And if we’re to venture outside that genre, there are other classics like The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile that are also worth mentioning.

If we could add another to the horror tally though, I’d say Salem Lot is worthy of that distinction. Strangely enough, this is one story yet to make it to the silver screen, though it’s received its share of live action adaptations. Odds are you’re most familiar with the 1979 TV miniseries, or perhaps the 1987 followup, A Return to Salem’s Lot. If not, then maybe you tuned in for TNT’s updated version of Salem

Kill the lights and diaper up for The Conjuring Universe Jumpscares Supercut

When The Conjuring launched in July of 2013, no one could have anticipated that the James Wan-created universe would go on to become one of the most recognizable horror franchises in history. In time, The Conjuring spurned two sequels, and eventually paved the way for several spinoff series including Annabelle, The Nun, The Curse Of La Llorona, and The Crooked Man (currently in development).

Annabelle Comes Home Scares Up Fresh Rotten Tomatoes Score

The latest chapter in the ever-growing Conjuring universe is here and the verdict is in. Annabelle Comes Home, based on the early indication from Rotten Tomatoes, may not be at the top of the food chain with this franchise, but it's apparently not half bad! Granted, Rotten Tomatoes is just a general indicator. That said, as far as third entries in a horror spin-off franchise go, this doesn't seem to be a bad bet for those who are looking for a little bit of spooky business at the movies this weekend.

Annabelle Comes Home actually hits theaters today, as Warner Bros. and New Line are looking to get a jump on the competition this weekend. As such, we've already got a critic and audience score. On the critical side, the movie has a decent 64 percent approval rating, with 69 reviews counted. The audience rating is a bit better, currently sitting at 74 percent.

Box Office: ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ Kicks Off Tuesday With Solid $3.5 Million

  • Variety
Warner Bros. and New Line’s “Annabelle Comes Home” collected a strong $3.5 million in Tuesday night previews.

The supernatural thriller is expected to earn $30 million over its first five days in theaters. “Annabelle Comes Home” is the third “Annabelle” movie and seventh entry in the Conjuring franchise. Preview ticket sales are in line with horror titles like “Purge 3: Election Year” ($3.6 million), “The Curse of La Llorona” ($2.8 million). Those numbers are slightly above 2014’s “Annabelle,” which earned $2.1 million in previews.

Annabelle Comes Home” is on pace for one of the lowest debuts in the Conjuring Universe. The first “Annabelle” movie marks the smallest start with $37 million. The biggest opening weekend in the franchise belongs to “The Nun” with $53 million.
