News & Interviews for Marrowbone
Critic Reviews for Marrowbone
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.
Characterization seems to be the problem overall. A few jump scares aside, it's hard to feel frightened for the family when they have one or two personality traits each.
Gothic horror and romantic melodrama come together to mediocre effort in this stylish low-budget thriller more noteworthy for effort than execution.
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".
