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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
