FLASH REVIEW “The Devil’s Backbone” (2001)


Directed by: Guillermo Del Toro

After Carlos, a 12-year-old whose father has died in the Spanish Civil War, arrives at an ominous boy’s orphanage he discovers the school is haunted and has many dark secrets that he must uncover.


The Devil’s Backbone is a creepily atmospheric and haunting ghost story set in a Catholic orphanage during the Spanish Civil War. A memorable human drama with a deep political dimension filled with rich and engaging characters. The film is also gorgeous and beautifully shot from start to finish. One of Guillermo del Toro’s best work along with the sublime Pan’s Labyrinth.


Dark, eerie and complex, an amazing story about love, betrayal and human cruelty.
