El espinazo del diablo 2001

El espinazo del diablo: It is 1939, the end of three years of bloody civil war in Spain, and General Francos right-wing Nationalists are poised to defeat the left-wing Republican forces. A ten-year-old boy named Carlos, the son of a fallen Republican war hero, is left by his tutor in an orphanage in the middle of nowhere. The orphanage is run by a curt but considerate headmistress named Carmen and a kindly Professor Casares, both of whom are sympathetic to the doomed Republican cause. Despite their concern for him, and his gradual triumph over the usual schoolhouse bully, Carlos never feels completely comfortable in his new environment. First of all, there was that initial encounter with the orphanages nasty caretaker, Jacinto, who reacts even more violently when anyone is caught looking around a particular storage room the one with the deep well. Second, and more inexplicable, is the presence of a ghost, one of the former occupants of the orphanage named Santi. Not long after Carlos arrival, Santi latches onto Carlos, badgering him incessantly at night and gloomily intoning, Many of you will die. As if that wasnt enough to keep the orphanages occupants in an unrelenting state of terror, theres the un-exploded bomb that dominates the orphanages courtyard, still ticking away; With the orphanage left defenseless by its isolation, and the swift progression of Francos troops, the ghosts prediction seems depressingly accurate. Nevertheless, with every step of the plot, it becomes apparent that the ghosts predictions as to who (or what) will die, the real source of danger and even the definition of death itself may be more ambiguous than first thought.
