As a child you might have imagined that a sharp-toothed beast lurked in the shadows of your closet, or that a slimy, scaly creature wound its way through the toys underneath your bed. As we get older, the monsters (at least of the non-human variety) we once imagined tend to fade away, but their possible existence is explored in Adam Green's upcoming film, Digging Up the Marrow, which now has a release date and a new poster.

EW reports that Digging Up the Marrow will hit theaters on February 20th, 2015. Back in October, Image Entertainment acquired the U.S. release rights to the Adam Green-directed film, which also stars Green as himself. The movie's first trailer should debut soon, so stay tuned to Daily Dead for further details.

"Starring, written and directed by Adam Green and inspired by the artwork of artist Alex Pardee, the film stars Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, X-Men First Class), Will Barratt (Frozen), and a roster full of horror genre favorites and iconic artists all appearing as themselves.

When filmmaker Adam Green receives a package from a strange man (Ray Wise) claiming he can prove that monsters exist, he and his crew are taken on a mysterious, fantastical, and terrifying journey into the shadows deep down under the ground below our feet. DIGGING UP THE MARROW is a documentary-style film that blends reality with fantasy in a way that will leave even the most hardcore skeptics believing in the existence of monsters."
