Adam Green has been making horror films for over a decade and his fans are no stranger to his love for gore and prosthetic special effects. Considered a moder master of horror, Green has made hit after hit. His film Hatchet has on to form a trilogy and his icy cold chiller Frozen did for ski lifts what Psycho did for showers. So what is he up to next?
Adam Green’s latest project DIGGING UP THE MARROW is an ingenious genre mash-up of documentary and dark fantasy. We were there at the World Premiere at last years Film4 Frightfest and we are delighted to announce that Digging up the Marrow is finally burrowing its way on to DVD this June.
The plot of the film blurs the line between fact and fiction flawlessly. Adam Green receives a package in his fan mail from a mysterious man named William Dekker (Ray Wise). Dekker claims he can prove monsters do indeed exist and that these grotesque creatures are in fact forgotten, hideously deformed humanoids that inhabit a vast, underground metropolis of the damned. Determined to discover the truth, Green and his crew embark on a mysterious, fantastical, and terrifying journey deep into the shadows – where they dare to go Digging Up the Marrow!
We spoke with Adam when he was at Frightfest and he had the following to say about the film:
“It’s not a found footage movie, it’s not really a mockumentary” says Adam Green. “It started out as a documentary and then it went off the rails but it’s a movie for anyone who is really into monsters. If you wished monsters were real then it’s for you. There are no blood and guts, there are no killings but there may or may not be monsters.”
Arguably, Digging Up the Marrow is Green‘s best film to date. It’s fun, It’s scary and is a must see for any self respecting horror fan. But look no further for spoilers online, just seek out the film and enjoy every minute of it from the safety of your sofa (either on it or behind it).
Extras include: Behind The Scenes, Deleted Scenes.
DIGGING UP THE MARROW will be avialable to take home on DVD on 15th June, 2015.
