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.
We open DIGGING UP THE MARROW at the NoHo today and tonight the filmmaker Adam Green and actors Will Barratt, Alex Pardee, and Ray Wise will be there to introduce the 9:55 screening. Green and Barratt will be back to do the same for the Saturday, February 21 screening, joined by creature effects artists Rob Pendergraft and Greg Aronowitz.
