Spanish director Sergio G. Sánchez has made quite the name for himself as a high-profile screenwriter, having penned both The Impossible and The Orphanage for J.A. Bayona (who has since graduated to making Jurassic World sequels).
Now, Sánchez - following a string of short films and TV movies - is set to make his feature debut with Marrowbone, a rather creepy-looking gothic horror picture that details the haunting of an immigrant family on the titular rural estate.
Check out the trailer, which is filled with golden-hued tension:
While it's slightly tough to tell what the overall narrative is from that spot, this brief synopsis shines a little more light on the matter:
"A young man and his three younger siblings, who have kept secret the death of their beloved mother in order to remain together, are plagued by a sinister presence in the sprawling manor in which they live."
Co-starring Anya Taylor-Joy (Split, Thoroughbreds) and George MacKay (11.22.63), Marrowbone looks like it's going to pack enough of a strange punch to make us curious when it hits theaters and VOD April 13th from Magnet Films/Magnolia Pictures.
