What’s your definition of family? How does it look in this ever changing world of today and tomorrow? Did you know there was a time where only family mattered? Back before we ever touched the moon or picked up a cellphone everything was based around the structure of your family. For the MARROWBONE children one secret has the key of destroying that unity. MARROWBONE is a classically styled gothic horror. Intense and bewildering you won’t know what hits you until the overwhelming climatic ending!
MARROWBONE follows the story of four siblings dealing with the untimely death of their mother. The oldest must keep the family together as they try and piece together their lives. A sinister force resides in the house which could do more damage than anything they have ever encountered before. MARROWBONE is breathtaking with its countryside landscape that separates the kids from the outside world. Standout performances from everyone in the feature helps blend this storybook tale beyond the brink of imagination. The calmness and surreal nature of the family somehow meshes well with the evil that surrounds them.
Viewers will be hooked on the depth of MARROWBONE. While the tale isn’t original there is enough substance to draw your attention away from the inevitable. MARROWBONE will be on the lips of some of the top critics this year with reason. In a world of fairytales and fantasies winning top acclaim, it’s nice to see that horror still holds the foundation for such success.
