11 Nights of Halloween: FOREIGN – THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE

Guillermo del Toro on THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE: “The politics within the walls of the school serve as a microcosm for the politics raging outside: Fascists, Communists and Republicans all vie for supremacy.”

Rule #750 in horror, “thou shalt not kill kids.” When thou does, the rules are thrown out the window.

Leave it to Del Toro to not only break the rules in this overlooked Spanish orphanage ghost story, but also have a timely hidden political theme expertly woven into the film’s fabric.

It is available to rent on Amazon, Google, Vudu, YouTube and iTunes.
