The Devil’s Backbone (2001)

Title: The Devil’s Backbone

Genre: Drama, Horror

Director: Guillermo Del Toro

Starring: Marisa Paredes, Eduardo Noriega, Federico Luppi

Summary: It is 1939, the end of three years of bloody civil war in Spain, and a ten-year-old boy named Carlos, the son of a fallen Republican war hero, is left by his tutor in an orphanage in the middle of nowhere. Not long after Carlos’ arrival, the orphanage’s ghost latches onto him, badgering him incessantly at night and gloomily intoning, “Many of you will die.” As if that wasn’t enough to keep the orphanage’s occupants in an unrelenting state of terror, there’s the un-exploded bomb that dominates the orphanage’s courtyard, still ticking away. With the orphanage left defenseless by its isolation, and the swift progression of Franco’s troops, the ghost’s prediction seems depressingly accurate.
