Rawhead Rex is rocking a sweet undercut!

Film #22 in The June Challenge

Every once in awhile a film comes out that defines it's genre; V/H/S/2 is that type of film.

What La Llorona does is recontextualise Hispanic American folklore as real life evil, specifically as a part of Guatemala's historical turmoil. Guatemala went through a lot of leaders, and war, and death. The film presents a dictator on trial for his crimes, creating a close resemblance to real history. How can a country deal…
