Critic Consensus: Marrowbone's effective setting and strong cast can't make up for thinly conceived characters and a story short on genuine scares.

Critic Reviews for Marrowbone
Sergio G. Sánchez struggles to locate the frights, with underwritten characters draining his shocks of their emotional payoff.
A retro chiller with positively no new or interesting moves.
This distinctively terrible film is a hideous hotchpotch of shouty overacting and muddled storytelling, unable to make up its mind if it's a family drama, a supernatural chiller or a psychological mystery.
The direction by Sergio G Sánchez is uneven, the narrative consistently illogical...and the final "twist" visible from early in the first act. Disappointing.
Consider the Marrowbone glass to be either half-empty of potent horror, or half-full of everything else it's got going for it - a decent glug, stylistically speaking, but not quite enough.
Audience Reviews for Marrowbone
"Down on your marrowbones and pray!" A pretty good collection of up-and-comers with a solid enough premise told relatively efficiently, featuring a mix of hardline-by-the-numbers horror and only-mostly-cliche horror, but it lacks that next step to take it over the line into being "Actually good".
