If you follow me over on Facebook, chances are you saw that I posted this picture mentioning this specific post. It’s the first post in a week thanks to working, personal projects, etc [sorry about that – it’ll never happen again, I swear!] and I wanted to make it special; although, my top 07 SAW traps post was pretty fun, wasn’t it? But, enough lingering on the past! Let’s get to today’s post – which involves a movie I’ve been meaning to talk about, but never had a real reason to; until now.
The fact is though, if you know me in real life or you read this particular horror blog, you know that I’m a fairly large fan of Adam Green: I’ve talked about the Hatchet trilogy on here numerous times, [and I’m bound to only write more!] although I wasn’t a big fan of the whole film; I only really enjoyed Adam‘s segment in Chillerama, and Holliston is a pretty damn funny [albeit, horror] TV show. Today, we’re here to talk about Green‘s newest film coming out, which I think sounds fantastic: DIGGING UP THE MARROW.
When it was first announced, I wasn’t sure what to think: other than I’d probably see it – for the sake of the writer/director.. But with the plot now released, [and an official poster or two] let’s just say I’m more than just “excited” for the movie! The film follows actors such as Ray Wise, Will Barratt, and a whole roster full of horror genre favorites and iconic artists all appearing as themselves.. even including Adam Green himself!
“When filmmaker Adam receives a package from a strange man claiming he can prove that monsters exist, he and his crew are taken on a mysterious, fantastical, and terrifying journey into the shadows deep down under the ground below our feet. Digging Up the Marrow is a documentary-style film that blends reality with fantasy in a way that will leave even the most hardcore skeptics believing in the existence of monsters.”
As if all this didn’t sound exciting enough; a favorite artist of mine, Alex Pardee is also taking part in the film – as he’s known for having horror styled artwork; which sometimes blend pop culture with horrific tones. He even did some based on Green‘s films, such as Frozen – no, not Disney‘s Frozen. [check out Pardee‘s art blog here] The film is going to be a fun one, especially for monster movie fans like myself. Unfortunately all we have is the plot and the poster released, with no teaser or released date even suggested: I’m just hoping for a trailer soon.
I’m also fairly curious about how the monsters are going to look: based on one of the posters found above, we can expect [at least some of] them to be found underground; and they seem big too – since the guy with the shovel is basically a small spot compared to the beast[s] below him! and that’s only just one/two monsters [I’m totally expecting a fucking crowd of creatures by the end of the movie!]
So now I turn to you as the readers, are you a fan of monster films? if so, will you go and see the movie that is calling itself Digging Up The Marrow? why or why not? Let me know in a comment or two, or even over on the Facebook page! While you’re over there, be sure to hit that “like” button a few times, or even mention it to some friends or family – I’d sure appreciate it! Stick around for my next post, which will probably be here by tomorrow morning which will obviously – be more horrific fun!
THANKS FOR READING.
