Louisiana in particular has several different accents or dialects, including Creole, which is perfectly appropriate for a story involving Voodoo.
I have no problem with the dialect, she sounds like she's actually from New Orleans and not putting on a show, I have a problem with how she reads her lines. If she had some normal conversational readings in-between the dramatic ones, but when she insists on making every little observation the most dramatic and spooky thing she has ever seen, she just makes me really tired.

I don't understand why "I don't like how she reads her lines" translates to "I have no clue what a New Orleans dialect sounds like and think she's being stereotypical"..
