Guillermo del Toro’s THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE at the Ritz Monday & Wendesday
We're so excited to present Guillermo del Toro's (PAN'S LABYRINTH, HELLBOY, CRONOS) masterpiece THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE in 35mm for two nights this week at the Ritz. Tonight at 7:00 and Wednesday at 9:40.
This pain-ridden fairytale is alternately beautiful and brutal, and is easily one of the very best horror films of the last 20 years. Before helming PAN'S LABYRINTH, writer/director del Toro established himself as cinema's leading visionary fantasist with this uniquely chilling, unforgettable masterwork. Now, almost a decade letter, we're proud to bring it back to the big screen in its full 35mm glory!
The story follows a young boy interned in a boarding school in the ruins of the Spanish Civil War, but the bombers overhead are nowhere near as terrifying as the icy whispers from The One Who Sighs, the ghost of a child who haunts the grounds. Del Toro takes actual events and seamlessly weaves an epic in an entirely unique world of agony, fear, dedication and wrath. The tone is of a supernatural spaghetti western written by Roald Dahl, but del Toro's talents send this into the cinematic stratosphere.
If you deeply hate yourself, miss this screening.
