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.
A mother of two who inherits a house is confronted with murderous intruders on the first night in their new home and fights for her daughters' lives. Sixteen years later when the daughters reunite at the house, things get really strange.
After suspecting that their police officer neighbor is a serial killer, a group of teenage friends spend their summer spying on him and gathering evidence, but as they get closer to discovering the truth, things get dangerous.
Three brothers and a sister have just lost their mother. After her death they fear to be separated, so to protect themselves and prevent this from happening they decide to flee to an abandoned farm, a place that is not what it seems, because it hides a dark secret between its walls.
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 »
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 »

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.
