Adam Green, the man behind the ‘Hatchet’ franchise, has brought us ‘Digging Up The Marrow’. Green plays himself in this faux documentary about monsters. In ‘Digging Up The Marrow’, while filming a documentary about horror artists, Green is approached by a strange man with an even stranger story. William Dekker, is a man on a mission, he’s trying to find someone who can help him expose the truth, that monsters are real.

Adam Green wrote and directed ‘Digging Up The Marrow’. Green, William Barratt, Josh Ethier, Rileah Vanderbilt, Kane Hodder, and most everyone in the film, play themselves, except for Ray Wise, who plays William Dekker. Wise also starred in many movies, including this year’s hottest supernatural movie ‘The Lazarus Effect’.

The concept behind ‘Digging Up The Marrow’ was a fresh idea and a welcomed change from the same old movies ideas we see over and over. Green’s creativity truly showed with each monsters unique design. Ray Wise did a great job of coming off as unstable and weird. You really get the sense that Dekker honestly believes in what he his saying and that he’s hiding a something. ‘Digging Up The Marrow’ is more suspenseful than scary, but I really enjoyed it.
