Critic Reviews for Marrowbone
A few brushes with satisfactory filmmaking craft is a moot thing to champion in a film this mucked up.
Scary enough to please most genre buffs, it would also play well in art houses: If you were to go through and remove every hint of ghosts, you'd still have a drama well worth seeing.
The climax packs a nice wallop in giving the answer, but by then all that zig-zagging might have exhausted the audience past the point of caring.
A virtuous, even happy tape, so to speak. [Full Review in Spanish]
Despite the fine performancse of his cast of young stars... [director Sergio G.] Sanchez forgets the essence of his film, the same that made us empathize with the fables of Bayona and Amenabar: fear of the loss of loved ones. [Full review in Spanish]
Audience Reviews for Marrowbone
"Down on your marrowbones and pray!" A pretty good collection of up-and-comers with a solid enough premise told relatively efficiently, featuring a mix of hardline-by-the-numbers horror and only-mostly-cliche horror, but it lacks that next step to take it over the line into being "Actually good".
