Cineworld Unlimited members were lucky enough to catch horror movie The Curse of La Llorona in advance over the Bank Holiday weekend. James Wan produces this latest instalment in the Conjuring Universe, in which a Los Angeles mother and her two children are persecuted by a horrifying Mexican entity known as the 'weeping woman'.
So ahead of the film's official release on 3rd May, we've rounded up some of the Unlimited reactions. We'll start with this from The Incredible Hulk who experienced a whole new way of watching a movie.
I liked the experience of watching a horror in Screen X! Completely bought a new touch to the genre and I’m excited to see more Horror’s in Screen X! Very tense and atmospheric - bring on more— The Incredible Hulk (@Benizzle19) April 20, 2019
Fizzy says the movie ties into the wider movie universe in entertaining ways.
I thought it was Brilliant, another one for the Conjuring Universe, I really think they have a way of telling a story that is both interesting and horrifying, I think they told the story of a new character and yet tied it into the universe very well, also great cast! Thanks Guys!— Fizzy (@FizzySignal) April 21, 2019
Pete Cunningham says the movie sets up the next instalment, Annabelle Comes Home, nicely. (That movie is released on 28th June.)
Good fun. I'll be recommending it to my friend who likes horror films. I missed the trailer for the next Annabelle film. Hope it it as good as this one.— Pete Cunningham (@Rabid_Womble) April 20, 2019
The plot made sense and there wasn't too many "oh come on, really?" moments you usually get in horror flims
Onedottoomany praises the film as one of the more characterful Conjuring instalments.
unsurprisingly it was chock full of jump scares, but considering the lean running time the writers really packed a lot of character into the film, meaning I genuinely cared about the outcome. #LaLlorona is nothing groundbreaking, but does the basics well.— onedottoomany (@onedottoomany) April 21, 2019
And Townie says there are more than enough twisted moments to play on one's mind.
Appreciated the film for what it was. It wasn’t trying anything new in terms of storytelling but had a tonne of unique scares and creepy imagery— Townie (@AlexTow79716147) April 20, 2019
