Movie Reviews

Great Movie Finally on DVD
R. Koleszar | Bloomington, IN USA | 06/08/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First of all, this is an awesome movie. A throwback Mexican classic, the settings and cinematography alone are amazing. The best part of this package, though, is the quality with which the DVD is produced. The technology available today has transformed what would be a grainy VHS copy into a collector's item. And for the movie? Easily one of the best Mexican horror movies ever made. Enough said."
LA LLORONA....
Mark Norvell | HOUSTON | 07/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While perhaps not as vividly graphic as CasaNegra's other excellent release "The Witch's Mirror", "The Crying Woman" has it's own Gothic pleasures to offer. Obviously filmed on a lower budget, this only enhances the decaying atmosphere of the film which takes place in a decaying, dusty old house in a desolate wooded countryside. There, Selma-a mysterious "black widow" who's a direct descendant of La Llorona (the legendary "crying woman" who had supernatural power)-waits for her niece to arrive whom she will pass on the legacy to, whether she wants it or not. When the niece does arrive, all hell breaks loose. There's a weird clubfooted caretaker, a couple of massive bloodthirsty hounds, a crazed man-beast locked away in a cell, the putrifying corpse of La Llorona herself in the dungeon waiting to be released in new form, and there's Selma herself who casts no reflection and can change into a bat creature as well as roam the countryside with her hounds---her eyesockets black and empty. "The Crying Woman" is what it is: a highly enjoyable, low budget b&w straight-up horror film with loads of atmosphere. The DVD print is flawless. Kick back and enjoy."

High Quality Black & White Horror-I Loved it.
Carolyn Martin | Bear, Delaware | 10/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie instantly took me back to those quality black and white movies I grew up with. I didn't even mind that the movie was in subtitles. I quickly forgot that part when I was watching it. This movie has me wanting more and more of this type of horror. I truly wanted to cry when the movie was over. I thank God that this was converted to a CD format. It is a classic cult film for all those who love wonderful crafted movies and gifted directors, producers and actors."
