Product Description

Product Description

What if the ghastly images and abominations haunting our collective nightmares actually exist? Filmmaker Adam Green receives a package in his fan mail from a mysterious man named William Dekker (Ray Wise, Twin Peaks, X-Men: First Class, Robocop) claiming that he can prove that monsters do indeed exist, insisting these grotesque creatures are forgotten, hideously deformed humanoids inhabiting a vast, underground metropolis of the damned. Determined to expose the truth, Green and his crew embark on a bone-chilling odyssey. As the lines between fantasy and reality are increasingly blurred, they are taken on a mysterious, fantastical, and terrifying journey into the shadows and deep down under the ground below our very feet when they dare to go Digging Up the Marrow.

Love them or hate them found footage films are here to stay. Digging Up The Marrow from horror film director Adam Green, the director of Hatchet, and Frozen (no not that Frozen) is the latest entry in this sub genre of horror films, but this isn't just your normal found footage film, oh no this is something much more. This is a "meta found footage film", wait don't go! It is no where near as bad as you think, in fact Digging Up the Marrow is one the the most enjoyable horror films of the year.....
I can hear you now, "Ginger Nuts what exactly is a "meta found footage film", well I'll tell you, in this film the director Adam Green plays himself, or I hope, a fictionalized version of himself as he has a tendency to be a bit on the annoying side at times. Way too eager and totally incapable of listening and doing as he is told.

The film cleverly starts of at a horror convention and we are treated to a great intro featuring some of the bold and great of the horror world, telling us what they think monsters are. This scene cleverly sets the documentary tone of the film and helps to give the film a sense of grounding in the real world. Something that a lot of found footage films severely lack. It allows us to fully believe that Adam is going to go monster hunting in a spooky wood with a man who may or may not be loosing his marbles.

William Decker is your classic conspiracy nut, his house is full of pictures, press cuttings,big red arrows on the wall linking the 100's pieces of evidence that, to him proves not only the existence of Monsters but the existence of their home, which Decker names the Marrow. Like all good secret places the entrances to their homes are hidden in isolated, dark and spooky places like deep in the woods.

Digging Up The Marrow brings a slightly different spin to the old faux documentary format - it's cheap, playful and enjoyable enough but perhaps not especially memorable.

Adam Green is at the centre of things, playing himself, a horror film director of (amongst others) the Hatchet flicks and Frozen (not that Frozen). The doc followS the burgeoning relationship he has with a fan (played by Ray Wise) who claims he has discovered "monsters" in an underground environment he's calling "The Marrow". Is he nuts? Will we see any monsters? Our boy wants to believe and there's only one way to find out - meet the fella and head into the woods in the middle of the night with cameras for company. What could possibly go wrong?

Mostly the doc takes something of a nudge nudge, wink wink approach to events - throwing in a few other notables from the world of horror, playing themselves in amusing cameos. Green himself spends much of the first half of the film mugging for the camera but things get a little more serious in tone in the latter stages.

There's a handful of good jumps along the way and whilst sometimes feeling a bit ridiculous, it has a decent enough pay off to make the reasonably short journey worthwhile.

A subterranean world inhibited by monsters who have been shunned by society living right next to a graveyard? Sounds like Clive Barker's 'Nightbreed' for sure, but luckily director Adam Green keeps things moving in the right direction thus avoiding plight contrivances, repetition and ends up delivering a fine little movie.

The story has Green (the 'Hatchet' series and 'Frozen') playing himself. When he is contacted by ex Boston detective William Decker (the always superb Ray Wise) about an underworld lair inhibited by creatures simply known as 'The Marrow', Green is intrigued enough to rope his cinematographer Will Barratt in (again, himself) to investigate further, using the conceit of a faux documentary to relay the events that each of these three individuals face when they meet said 'monsters' who live in the marrow.

The movie does zip along at a fair old pace, but does lose steam near the end. Almost as if the filmmakers didn't know how to cement their concept - it just sort of limps towards a very obvious finale. However, thats not to say there isn't much to be enjoyed: Green is clearly a talent in front and behind the camera and his enthusiasm is infectious. Excellent too is Ray Wise - who creates a multi-layered character and you never really know if he's telling the truth, a total conspiracy theorist or something far more dangerous. Also, kudos to the nifty make-up and creature effects which range from exotic to creepy in equal measure.

Kaleidoscope's UK transfer is solid with great audio (the monsters sound great when they appear) and there's a great documentary that accompanies the package in the special features section. All in all, a great little movie - just a pity that its so close to 'Nightbreed' in terms of initial ideas, but don't hold that against it. Recommended.

I liked this but it didn't push the story far enough and it didn't know how to end which many films have problems with and elements worked and some just stumbled over itself. The film itself is part fictional documentary surrounding real filmmakers the same crew that brought you such film delights as the hatchet trilogy which was ok so this was a surprize as the large maniac was not catered for at all in this bio monster movie. This involves the real director adam green trying to find real monsters or just people that have facial disfigurements and are shunned by society so he finds a man who knows where real monsters are and they investigate. Ray Wise is always great as the crazy monster watcher and Kane Hodder appears as himself which is nice as well as other horror filmmakers as they mock the director in believing the monster watchers story. its alright it will do till the better film gets here.
