Haunting. It's the next day, and scenes from this scary story continue to creep into my thoughts. Complex and detailed characters populate The Devil's Backbone. Marisa Paredes and Frederico Luppi as Carmen and the doctor deliver potent and memorable performances as the pair heading up a Spanish orphanage at the height of the Spanish Civil War. Ignigo Garces and Fernando Tielve are two orphans, Jaime and Carlos, set against a scheming and amoral Jacinto (Eduardo Noriega).
This is a strong story, even without the supernatural. Add in the ghosts and the curative power of rum in the place of formaldehyde and this becomes one frightening and sticky piece of work.
