Four siblings seek refuge in an old home after the death of their mother, only to discover that the house has another, more sinister, inhabitant, in this haunting directorial debut from Sergio G. Sánchez, screenwriter of The Orphanage and The Impossible.

If you like something that just creeps up on you, then you will probably enjoy Marrowbone! I found this one to be a very well-acted and interesting flick. It is on the far side of brooding and moody, but that is never really a bad thing. The movie finds a way to creep up on you as it goes along its way and when things finally reach the boiling point you are there right along with it until the end. Now, you could probably say it drags things out just a bit here and there, but this is one that I think is well enough made that it shouldn’t be that big of an issue to you and you should still be able to hang in there and get where it is taking you.

The acting helps things a great deal. On the acting side of things we have from Stranger Things Charlie Heaton and from The Witch Anya Taylor-Joy among others. While the acting is good all around I’m sure these two will be the main two you keep talking about after it’s all over. They’ve impressed with their more famous work and they impress here. All in all, Marrowbone isn’t always the most exciting movie you’ll see this year, but it is one the most well-made from a filmmaking point of view. The story doesn’t always get in a hurry, but I think you’ll overall enjoy what you get.
