Directed by Sergio G. Sánchez.
Starring George Mackay, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Mia Goth, Matthew Stagg, and Kyle Soller.
A young man and his three younger siblings, who have kept secret the death of their beloved mother in order to remain together, are plagued by a sinister presence in the sprawling manor in which they live.
Writer of The Orphanage and The Impossible, Sergio G. Sanchez makes his directorial debut with The Secret of Marrowbone. The story revolves around the Marrowbone family living in rural 1960s America; they’ve fled an abusive father and after their mother passes away they keep it a secret in order to be kept together. Unfortunately there is a presence in their house which seems to be haunting them.
Marrowbone treads the familiar line between horror and psychological thriller and in some ways it’s successful and in others it fails completely.
