The Devils’ Backbone (2001)

The Devils’ Backbone (2001): Guillermo del Toro’s precursor to Pan’s Labyrinth, and arguably better. (I do love Pan’s though).

The ghost-child Santi is brilliantly realised - shrouded by a watery blood-cloud, as if submerged, Santi’s bones are subltly visible as the moonlight shines on his tiny body. Check out this clip to see for yourself…
