Movie: The Devil’s Backbone (El espinazo del diablo)
The Story, in a nutshell: A young boy goes to live at a haunted orphanage during the Spanish civil war.
Reason it’s awesome: This is an absolutely beautifully done ghost story. Very eerie, full of atmosphere, well-written script. Really just an all-around fantastic film. Although there are adults in the film, the majority of the focus is on the children, and that gives it a very unique perspective.
Humor level: 1/5
