Movie Info

What if the ghastly images and abominations haunting our collective nightmares actually exist? Writer/director Adam Green (Hatchet) sets out to make a documentary exploring this tantalizing premise after being contacted by a mysterious man named William Dekker (Ray Wise). Dekker claims he can prove that "monsters are real" and insists these grotesque creatures are forgotten, hideously deformed humanoids inhabiting a vast, underground metropolis of the damned. Determined to expose the truth, Green embarks on a bone-chilling odyssey and gets more than he bargains for when he dares to go Digging Up The Marrow.(C) Image

Here's hoping Green's next film is just 90 minutes of Ray Wise talking to an imaginary friend.

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.
