Monsters in the closet, under your bed, right outside your window—as children, we sometimes get the sense that creatures lurk just out of sight wherever we go. As we get older, this perspective usually fades, but not for William Dekker (Ray Wise). He knows monsters exist, and he takes a film crew to the entrance of their world in the first trailer for Adam Green’s Digging Up the Marrow.

"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."

Written and directed by Adam Green, Digging Up the Marrow stars Ray Wise, Will Barratt, Alex Pardee, and Green (the latter three appearing as themselves).

Digging Up the Marrow comes out at the Laemmle North Hollywood Cinema in Los Angeles and on VOD on February 20th, with a theatrical expansion beginning March 2nd. Digging Up the Marrow will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 24th. Each copy ordered from arieScope will be signed by Adam Green and comes with the following bonus features:

  • 30 minute documentary on MARROW's special creature effects (“Monsters of the Marrow”)
  • 30 minutes of deleted and extended scenes
  • A commentary track with Adam Green, Ray Wise, Will Barratt, and Alex Pardee
  • More

Adam Green recently announced that the “Touring Through the Marrow” experience will begin on February 12th. Green and Pardee will attend each special screening, which will feature “an audience Q&A, an art exhibit of Pardee’s original artwork that inspired the film, one of their favorite monsters from the film, and exclusive tour merchandise.” To see the list of tour dates, visit:
