J-ok'el (Jokel, The Crying Woman, The Weeping Woman) Reviews
February 4, 2008
An interesting, low-key movie with a great story plot that centralizes upon a famed folk tale (La Llorona) about a young woman who falls under deep mental stress and kills her own children then herself. The movie centralizes minimally on that factor in terms of the many kidnappings of local children. Great ghost story. Definitely worthy.

I suppose this movie got so many one-star reviews because viewers were expecting a Mexican blood-and-gore horror film and instead got a mystery/ghost story drama. I found the story interesting and well told, though it left a few plot threads dangling in the end. The acting was good but certainly not Oscar-worthy. A decent film, if not anything really outstanding.
