Trivia

All the scenes in the house (but not the attic ones, and the library sequence) have been filmed in the same house with natural light only. The three different stairways existed as such and have been kept for filming. See more »

Goofs

In the last scene with Jack sitting on the porch with Allie, her right hand position fluctuates from gently rubbing on the back of his neck during close-ups of Jack, to resting still on his shoulder in shots of them together. See more »

A Gothic "Where the Lilies Bloom"
21 February 2018 | by twelvehousebooksSee all my reviews

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.
