What if the ghastly images and abominations haunting our collective nightmares actually exist? That’s a question which occupies most of my waking hours—and all of my sleeping ones. It is also a query raised by Digging Up the Marrow, the new film from writer-director Adam Green (Hatchet, the other Frozen) and artist Alex Pardee.
In the movie, Green (who plays himself) sets out to make a documentary exploring this premise after being contacted by a mysterious man named William Dekker (the great Ray Wise). According to the film’s official synopsis, 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.”
Digging Up the Marrow will be released theatrically Feb. 20 and you can exclusively check out the movie’s new poster above.
