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

When Billy drops down into the chimney to look for the money box, the burn length on the first match he lights changes with multiple camera angles, from the front camera shot (short burn length), and the rear camera shot (long, almost to his fingers). Also, other than for a suspense affect, why is he using multiple matches for minimal light? Earlier in the movie, it was clear the children were in possession of working flashlights. See more »

Greatly underrated film.
3 March 2018 | by johnoconnor-26740See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, this film is far from perfect, but with an open mind and a pure enthusiasm for art, Marrowbone will definitely surprise you as a imperfect masterpiece.

To keep this review spoiler free, I cannot delve too deep into the plot or development of the characters, which sadly makes it hard to describe this film, as it truly is one of those unique films that completely surprises you, just when you think you have a grip on what's going on. To give you an idea, after watching this movie, the film ["Split"2017] came to mind. If you found that movie intriguing or in any way exciting to watch, this film will definitely have you asking for more.

If you're not into horrors and the trailer gave you the idea that this is some sort of "scary" movie with spirits and demons cursed upon a family, it really isn't. In fact, there is no ghosts or mythical beings in this film, it's just a pure chair-gripping horror/adventure movie with great storytelling and immensely superb acting.

That brings me to my final summary of why you should watch this film. If you're purely into acting, the fine art of performing well behind camera, you will definitely admire this film as a pure masterpiece. All the actors were extremely impressive at their role, each portraying emotion and understanding of their character at such depth. That being said, George MacKay, playing the role of "Jack", were definitely on a level of his own and in my opinion, deserved a best actor nomination. He truly brought his character alive with his complete understanding of the raw emotions that had be precisely portrayed.

It is sad to see how such a great film with admirable storytelling and top class acting can be so greatly underrated. In my opinion, this film deserves no less than a 8/10.
