If you haven't seen WHERE THE LILIES BLOOM, see it first, and follow up with MARROWBONE. The only glitch is that there was no U.S. homeschooling in 1969, when the story is set, yet homeschooling is mentioned. Other than that, this isn't a film you haven't seen before, with or without its non-Gothic predecessor mentioned above and in the title of this review, but it is a film that you won't mind seeing again. The twists are usual, but, fans of the classic slow-burn, there are NO jump scares. No, not one. And that, for me at least, is what sets the films apart from the B-flicks.
