Review
Santi is a decomposing wraith terrorising the inhabitants of a secluded orphanage towards the end of the Spanish Civil War, but the more the children discover about their tormentor the more they understand the reasons for his actions and decide to wreak a terrible revenge on behalf of Santi's tortured soul. The Devil's Backbone is a superbly atmospheric ghost story, elegant and terrifying in turns, stylishly directed and beautifully shot, with some fine performances.
