Here's hoping Green's next film is just 90 minutes of Ray Wise talking to an imaginary friend.
Digging Up the Marrow is a playfully self-reflexive exercise whose endless in-jokes will best be appreciated by only the most ardent genre aficionados.
Much of Digging Up The Marrow plays like Green's love letter to his fans and to the importance of fandom in genre filmmaking.
Digging Up the Marrow isn't just a terrific horror movie; it's a movie about why we are drawn to horror movies.
More cheerfully spooky than legitimately scary, Marrow is an interesting use of the well-exhausted found footage subgenre.
Loses me in a haze of winks and Adam Green celebrating Adam Green.
Works as a dry comedy, a slow-burn campfire story, and as a clever look at our frustratingly one-sided relationship with the paranormal.
The concept feels strained at feature length as it never establishes consistent tension or generates any meaningful suspension of disbelief.
Digging Up the Marrow is slight fun to be sure, but it is fun.
A meta-variation on Clive Barker's Nightbreed, Digging Up the Marrow tackles all the same questions [...] with considerably less grace and intelligence.
"Digging Up the Marrow" could have been an effective riff on Barker's "Nightbreed," but instead becomes just another found footage horror lark.
Smart, witty and genuinely scary in places, Digging Up The Marrow delivers much more than you'd expect based on its knowingly cheesy premise.
