Digging Up The Marrow: Blu-ray Review











The Movie:

What if the ghastly images and abominations haunting our collective nightmares actually exist? Writer/director Adam Green 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.

I’ve heard so much about this film in the last few months but I would be lying if I said I knew what it was about. The one thing that got me wanting to watch it was Adam Green. I’ve liked everything that he has done so far so there wasn’t a doubt that I was going to check it out. As the film started I was a bit confused as to what I was seeing. I went in expecting a full on horror film but what I saw was a documentary but I was still intrigued enough to keep watching. I quickly realized that Green was going the “Faux-Documentary” route when I saw Wise on screen and I understood completely at that time. The film cleverly takes you on a monster hunting journey and does a great job at mixing in the realism to make people question what they are exactly watching. My favorite thing about the film was the way that Green doesn’t entirely give you a full creature reveal. Instead, he gives you a glimpse with a jump scare here and there and lets your imagination do the rest of the work. If you’re looking for a unique horror experience then this would be the one for you to see. It’s interesting and will definitely keep your attention. 8/10
