Marrowbone

Critics Consensus

Marrowbone's effective setting and strong cast can't make up for thinly conceived characters and a story short on genuine scares.

Critic Reviews for Marrowbone

All Critics (73) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (35) | Rotten (38)

  • Sergio G. Sánchez struggles to locate the frights, with underwritten characters draining his shocks of their emotional payoff.

    July 18, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A retro chiller with positively no new or interesting moves.

    July 13, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This distinctively terrible film is a hideous hotchpotch of shouty overacting and muddled storytelling, unable to make up its mind if it's a family drama, a supernatural chiller or a psychological mystery.

    July 13, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The direction by Sergio G Sánchez is uneven, the narrative consistently illogical...and the final "twist" visible from early in the first act. Disappointing.

  • Consider the Marrowbone glass to be either half-empty of potent horror, or half-full of everything else it's got going for it - a decent glug, stylistically speaking, but not quite enough.

    July 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Story-wise, Marrowbone may not add up but this is a lyrical and chilly affair in similar vein to other recent Spanish-made horror pictures in which atmosphere is always foregrounded at the expense of plot.

Audience Reviews for Marrowbone

  • Mar 10, 2018
    "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".
