    "Guillermo del Toro, the only director that can make any horror genre film be thrilling, scary, but eerily beautiful at the same time. The Devil's Backbone is a spellbinding classic ghost story you must watch! "

    "I'm overwhelmed! You need to watch this if you're a big fan of horror movies! This has so many jumpscares and the way this was filmed is brilliant! Especially if you want it to be a fright fest. This has some of the scariest scenes next to Blair Witch and Paranormal Activity. "

    "The leading lady is so beautiful! Anyway, the movie is a real-life terror. You won't see demons, devils, or even ghosts in this film but pure human evilness. "

    "This was worth to watch but not worth the hype I guess. Everyone says that this is the scariest film ever but I didn't get scared. I'm sorry but I really tried. It's scary but not that scary."
