What is The Secret of Marrowbone?

The Secret of Marrowbone sees the directorial début from Sergio G. Sánchez, screenwriter of The Orphanage and The Impossible.

From the trailer it does have the feel of quite of a “by the numbers” horror film that has been done time and time again.  Hopefully it will have enough of a twist to keep othersise it’s just another variant on something like this film.  Then again that may just be me and it could bring something new to the genre.

Four siblings seek refuge in an old home after the death of their mother, only to discover that the house has another, more sinister, inhabitant.
