OFG Presents “The Devil’s Backbone” Oct 29

25 October 2013

devilsbackboneThe film group presents its Halloween feature, The Devil’s Backbone on Tuesday, October 29 at 6:45 pm in the Oswego Public Library’s Community Room (120 East 2nd Street).

One of the most personal films by Guillermo del Toro, The Devil’s Backbone is also among his most frightening and emotionally layered. Set during the final week of the Spanish Civil War, it tells the tale of a twelve-year-old boy who, after his freedom-fighting father is killed, is sent to a haunted rural orphanage full of terrible secrets. Del Toro expertly combines gothic ghost story, murder mystery, and historical melodrama in a stylish mélange that, like his later Pan’s Labyrinth, reminds us the scariest monsters are often the human ones.
