Available on iTunes
From acclaimed Mexican horror maestro Guillermo del Toro (Mimic, Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy) comes The Devil's Backbone, a truly terrifying spine-tingler combining state of the art special effects with towering performances from a combination of Latin Legends (Frederico Luppi, Cronos, and Marisa Paredes, All About My Mother) and rising stars (Eduardo Noriega, Open Your Eyes). A deliciously dark horror, The Devil's Backbone tells the tale of a remote Spanish orphanage during the final days of the Spanish Civil War whose young inhabitants are brutally terrorised by Santi, a decomposing spirit who stalks the building's dark decaying hallways. But, as the film builds to a grisly, explosive finale, the children learn the true story of Santi's death and rise up to vow a deadly vengeance on his vicious murderer. Produced by Academy Award Winner Pedro Almodóvar (All About My Mother) and brilliantly shot for maximum suspense by leading cinematographer Guillermo Navarro (Jackie Brown), The Devil's Backbone continues the resurgence in Latin cinema following the global impact of Amores Perros.
