Critic Reviews for Marrowbone
It is a sensational piece of genre subterfuge, the narrative an increasingly byzantine maze overflowing in deft twists and turns.
There are reminders here - as there were in the recent Irish horror The Lodgers - that the haunted house movie still contains possibilities. Neither will it, however, keep you awake at night like The Orphanage.
Sergio G. Sánchez struggles to locate the frights, with underwritten characters draining his shocks of their emotional payoff.
A retro chiller with positively no new or interesting moves.
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.
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".
