First Trailer for Supernatural Horror 'Marrowbone' with George MacKay
"We have to tell Allie the truth." Magnet Releasing has unveiled a new official trailer for the supernatural horror thriller film Marrowbone, which is the feature directorial debut of Spanish writer Sergio G. Sanchez, who previously wrote the scripts for The Orphanage and The Impossible. The film is about four siblings who seek refuge in an old home after the death of their mother, only to discover that the house has another, more sinister, inhabitant. George MacKay (seen in Captain Fantastic) stars, along with Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Mia Goth, Nicola Harrison, and Matthew Stagg. This looks like it has some impressive cinematography to top off a chilling ghost story. Another solid horror that is worth a look.
Here's the new official trailer (+ poster) for Sergio G. Sanchez's Marrowbone, direct from YouTube:
A young man named Jack (George MacKay) 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. Marrowbone is written and directed by Spanish writer/filmmaker Sergio G. Sanchez, making his feature directorial debut. Sanchez previously wrote the screenplays for acclaimed horror films The Orphanage and The Impossible. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and also played the San Sebastián Film Festival. Magnet Releasing will debut Sanchez's Marrowbone in select theaters + on VOD starting April 13th coming up this spring. What do you think? Looking good?
This story might be interesting if it's not told as a horror. But you can't beat emptiness of Hollywood people, so we got another generic thing here ...

Damn...there's just too many "horror" movies being made. What, is everyone in Hollywood 14 years old?

You've got a beef with horror films in an age of never-ending superhero movies? Really?

Well, I think he's on the right track here. Horrors are obviously much worse these days than any superhero film I saw in last few years. Not that all of horrors are bad, but comparing to superhero films, those are done much better than horrors. And I don't think of effects, cgi or whatever. They simply have better narratives while horrors look like they are made only for teenagers ...

Agree to disagree... imo superhero films are more tailor-made for 14-y/olds than horror films ever have been. Sure, I guess there are a number of infantile horror flicks coming out each year, but I don't think there's a single superhero flick as well-made as Eggers' The Witch (2015), f.ex., or Let the Right One In (2008), to name 21st-century examples. Hell, Cahiers du Cinema named 'Get Out'--a horror flick--as last year's best film. Sanchez, the director of 'Marrowbone' here, has written a good (horror) film in 2007 before, called 'The Orphanage'.

I'm going to be selective. Sometimes I will agree and sometimes I will not. As long as someone sees superhero films 'tailor-made for 14y/olds" then such a person has 14y/old reading ability for films. They are highly allegorical, just like the comic books they are made from (and a lot of them rely on mythologies, definitely stories for 14 years old). Let's not be fooled by visual/cgi effects or by action sequences, since there's a lot of serious thinking about today's world and the ability to do anything in this world in them. Pathos of men and pathos of gods have never left us. And yes, there are a lot of infantile superhero films around us, but not all of them. As for horrors, they were the first things I really liked on film (Carrie and Halloween will be always more than classics to me), but soon they had some strong competition in other genres. Their stories are mostly reactionary and I see more special and psychological effects in them than in any superhero or sf films (or stories, for that matter). Yeah, Cahiers du Cinema is a strong reference and Get Out is a great film, but, so are The Watchmen (2009) or Supermen (1978) or some others. I agree with you about some good horrors films lately, but a lot of them is really a fest of cliches, much worse than superhero films cliches. But on the end, good ones among both of them are worth of attention ...

Fair points. I'm going to admit that I haven't seen much of the Marvel/DC universe franchises, so perhaps I haven't seen enough to justify my view of it as mostly infantile. I love Watchmen, the original comic book, and found the movie adaptation merely adequate, though paling in comparison. I've heard good things about Logan (planning to see it), but other than that I've no clue which superhero flicks would be considered good films regardless of genre; do you have any recommendations for starters?
Terry Craig on Feb 24, 2018
Look, I think there's nothing black and white, as most of us is well aware. Some things might be less good for you even if they are also good for me. Yeah, Logan is a good start. As for the rest, Winter Soldier (second from the Captain America series) is an interesting take on today's society of control. The third one, Civil War isn't bad either, about the responsibilities of the mighty. Yeah, as they say, also action packed, but still good. Avengers films are also one possible among other choices, but watchable ones. They hardly rely on the fun part The first one especially. Some people liked Nolan's Batmans (all three of them), but the second one seems to be done interesting. Of course, I like first two films about Superman, although, most of the people is really not that positive about them (as for me, it's an outstanding story about impossibility of having fixed identity today). The newest one from Marvel, Black Panther, is very interesting thing. So, it's up to you. Of course, all those films are interconnected through narrratives, but then again they can also stand alone as unique stories. Although, there are some references to other films, but nothing necessary decisive. To be honest, see for yourself, I never felt to be good with recommending things, although I'm willing to do the best. And, on the end, there are so many good films around, the superhero or horror films are just one small part of it. My problem is that I like sf but hardly only that. The whole film or written culture is just a vast containment of great things for me and each of them has something to offer.. Anyway, enjoy yourself in the best possible way. Cheers ...
