Movies According To Mischief – The Curse of La Llorona

The Curse of La Llorona Directed by Michael Chaves Cast: Linda Cardellini, Roman Christou, Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen, Raymond Cruz, Marisol Ramirez So giving you a jump start back into the swing of things, The Curse of La LLorona is a part of the ‘Conjuring’ film universe which include The Conjuring,  The Conjuring 2,  Annabelle and The Nun. Several references are made throughout such as recurring smaller characters, speech about the Warrens and visual clues such a raggedy doll similar to the real life Annabelle doll.

The Best Time To Shop Around For Car Insurance

Shopping around for car insurance is a no brainer. Insurance companies rely on people staying with them and offer their best deals for new customers and those that phone up to try and get a better deal. But did you know there was a best time for shopping around? Research has shown that getting comparitive quotes three weeks before your renewal gives you the best chance of the best price.
