The directorial debut feature from Sergio G. Sánchez, the writer of The Orphanage and The Impossible, is an immaculately crafted Gothic horror that manages to subvert many of the tropes whilst still neatly fitting into the genre.
Starring George MacKay (Captain Fantastic), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) and Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things), The Secret of Marrowbone sees four siblings seek refuge in an old home after the death of their mother, only to discover that the house has another, more sinister, inhabitant.
Sánchez's film looks remarkable, filmed in stark, natural daylight that really adds to the unsettling mystery of this compelling story. The performances are also fantastic, particularly MacKay as the oldest sibling shouldered with the burden of taking care of his family and the dark secrets they must keep.
