After Tom Parker’s half-sister disappears, he travels down to help his estranged mother find her, refusing to believe her going missing has anything to do with the supernatural. He ends up being a jerk to everyone he meets on his quest for truth and refuses to buy into the superstition even when he starts seeing things.
Although it’s budgeted as a horror movie, J-ok’el only manages to be creepy sometimes.

As the story progresses, each member of the family finds themselves in all kinds of situations ranging from love triangles to betrayals, heartbreak, and run-ins with the law.
Although the series was positively received amongst the general audience, it is one of the less-appreciated TV shows that Angelique Boyer has been featured in.
10. TEENAGE GIRLS LIKE YOU/MUCHACHITAS COMO TU (2009)
