Cowboy Gastón (Gastón Santos) and his sidekick Coyote Loco (Pedro de Aguillón) find abode in a Hacienda that's allegedly haunted by La Llorona, the Crying Woman (Carolina Barret), the sister of Dona Maria (Hortensia Santovena), current owner of the Hacienda. Everybody here believes that La Llorona is real, everybody but Dona Maria's niece Maria Elena (María Duval) ... but then Dona Maria is killed the La Llorona way, and Maria Elena is properly creeped out - even more so when Dona Maria seems to come back from the dead, and her coffin in her sealed up crypt is found empty. Only Gastón still has his doubts, and then his horse (!) finds a secret entrance to the crypt. From here it's not long until Gastón figures out that Dona Maria's own foreman (Guillermo Álvarez Bianchi) must have been behind everything because he wanted Dona Maria's land to exploit an as-of-yet secret goldmine. And La Llorona and back-from-the-dead Dona Maria? They were actually his cronies dressed in drag. Of course, Gastón sees to it that justice is served at the end of the day ...

 

A mexican cowboy fighting La Llorona? I'm afraid to say that this sounds a lot funnier than this movie actually is. Now it's true that the film was shot on a low budget and for the rather undiscriminating kiddie crowd, but that's no excuse for the film's lack of atmosphere, and for giving away its game way too soon. True, you might still get a giggle or two out of this one in a nostalgic way, but as a whole, The Living Coffin is just nowhere nearly as good (or as funny) as it could have been.
