Critic Reviews for Marrowbone
Sergio G. Sánchez struggles to locate the frights, with underwritten characters draining his shocks of their emotional payoff.
Marrowbone is proof that with a strong sense of place and characters an audience cares about, you can make a good horror movie without games, gimmicks, or even much narrative coherence.
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.
While some of its aesthetic and narrative components are vivid, Marrowbone as a whole feels simultaneously overstuffed and derivative.
Running from spookyish psycho-drama to florid, overcooked horror, with an increasing mood of almost gleeful melodrama. It doesn't quite work but it's an enjoyable, if bumpy, ride. George MacKay is a brilliant mess of arrogance and fear.
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".
