Modern master of the Macabre Guillermo Del Torro strikes again with this intensely realized, supernatural horror film with the unlikely backdrop of the Spanish Civil War looming in the distance. A large fortress-like building houses wayward orphaned youth with the guardians being a strict matriarchal principal and a kindly doctor. After a new young boy is dropped off by his remaining relatives, a long descent into the brooding darkness of tormented pasts comes into play and one of the most spellbindingly, erotic and intriguing ghost stories begins to unfold. Maybe a bit too artisitc and gory at times for its own good, THE DEVEIL'S BACKBONE is still a welcome diverson from the norm when it comes to the horror genre. Some genuine chills and surprising revelations interspliced prefectly along the way!
