Dir. Guillermo Del Toro

Subtitles

At the end of the Spanish Civil War a 10-year-old boy arrives at a remote orphanage and discovers that something sinister dwells within.

Guillermo Del Toro's dusty, creepy Spanish-language Gothic horror is the tonal companion of his more widely seen fantasy masterpiece, Pan's Labyrinth. Both films focus on isolated children encountering unearthly mysteries while the adults acting as their guardians are profoundly affected by the horrors of war.

The Devil's Backbone is a classicly styled ghost story with a creeping dread at its core.

We'll be in Crafty Devil's Cellar from 7:30pm and the screening will start at 8pm.
