Trivia

This is Sergio G. Sánchez's directorial debut. However, he has previously written for films such as The Impossible (2012) and The Orphanage (2007), both Directed by J.A. Bayona, who is also a producer of this film. See more »

Goofs

The mock-up of an English newspaper says "10.000 £ missing". An actual English-language paper would say, "£10,00 missing". The use of "." for a separator rather than "," and the placement of the pound sterling sign at the end betrays its European (Spanish) origin. See more »

Not just another ghost story, but a beautiful one
24 November 2017 | by weddypratamaSee all my reviews

Marrowbone is best described as horror drama movie. Although the twist in the end has been used in many other movies, but the story is such beautiful one. I like all the characters in it, Jack, Bill, Sam, the sister (her name I forgot), Allie, Tom, the father & the mother, their acting are very convincing. The scenery in the small town / village is so adorable (I live in the city, as city can be boring sometimes, so maybe this movie is my weekend getaway) too.

Whoever the director is, at least she/he is smart enough to tell a story which doesn't need lots of CGI (compared to ugly Justice League -> bad story & too much cheap CGI), but always rely on the power of the characters & the plot.
