A Dark Tale of Evilness and Curse
2 May 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The bestseller writer Mike Noonan (Pierce Brosnan) is autographing his new release in a bookstore and his beloved wife, the painter Jo Noonan (Annabeth Gish), goes to a store on the other side of the street to buy a pregnant test. When she is crossing the street back to the bookstore, a bus run over her and she does not survive. Mike grieves the loss of his wife and decides to go to the house by the Dark Score Lake, in Maine, that he had inherited from his grandfather and Jo had spent a long time repairing it. Mike starts to drink and suspects that Jo might have betrayed him since his sperm counting indicates that he is sterile.

In the isolated house, Mike has nightmares and believes that Jo is trying to contact him. He also has daydreams and ghostly visions with the jazz singer Sara Tidwell (Anika Noni Rose) in a local fair in 1939. Mike stumbles in the town with Mattie (Melissa George) and her daughter Kyra Devore (Caitlin Carmichael) and he discovers that the powerful and mean Max Devore (William Schallert) is disputing the custody of his granddaughter Kyra with Mattie. Further he discovers that there is a curse in Dark Score Lake due a despicable action of Max in 1939. Mike decides to help Mattie against Max and to investigate further the mysterious curse.

"Bag of Bones" is a dark tale of evilness and curse in a town in Maine. The supernatural story is very well constructed along 157 minutes running time and is a combination of drama, thriller and horror. I did not read the novel by Stephen King but I liked this TV mini-series. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Saco de Ossos" ("Bag of Bones")
