Now before anyone jumps at me, I’m fully aware that it’s Friday, which usually means that I’d be writing a FRIDAY FUN FACT today; however a trailer finally came out for what looks to be my most anticipated movie of 2015: Digging Up The Marrow. This isn’t the first time I’ve talked about this movie though, the last time being back in December about it’s group of posters [read the first post here] but with a trailer finally released, [as of today] I can confirm how awesome this movie seems to be shaping up to be! Based on the trailer, the movie is creepy looking, it has the Adam Green charm, and best of all; Adam Green actually stars in the film! [keep an eye open for a mask based on Victor Crowley in the trailer!] For those who don’t know, Digging Up The Marrow‘s official synopsis is as follows:
“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 ex-cop named William Dekker. Dekker claims he can prove that “monsters are real” and insists these grotesque creatures are actually just forgotten, but hideously deformed humanoids inhabiting a vast, underground metropolis of the damned [known as “The Marrow”]. Determined to expose the truth, Green embarks on a bone-chilling odyssey and gets more than he ever bargained for when he dares to dig up the Marrow.”
The trailer begins with a voice over stating that in every society, there are the deviants; which I assume is referencing the monsters. These monsters are based on the art of Alex Pardee, [who also stars in the film] who also designed the posters in my original Digging Up The Marrow post. [check out Pardee‘s art blog here] With the trailer’s flashing lit up creatures, and dark/moody atmosphere; it’s no wonder why this movie looks so damn exciting – Digging Up The Marrow is starting to look like the Adam Green film fans have been waiting for! [myself included!]
Oddly enough, the movie has actually been in production since 2010, but only recently wrapped up in August 2014. On December 8th, 2013 , as part of film critic Harry Knowles‘ [from AintItCoolNews] yearly Butt-numb-a-thon 24-hour film celebration, Adam Green and Alex Pardee surprised the audience by showing up at the Alamo Drafthouse Theater in Austin, Texas at 6:00am only to unveil a “not quite finished” version of the film, though Green specially requested that the audience to not to review the film until it is 100% complete. The comments on the “not quite completed” film after the screening were extremely positive and the crowd reportedly laughed, screamed, and even jumped out of their seats as they watched the film! [this sounds fantastic!]
Words cannot express just how excited I really am for this movie. as a large fan of both Adam Green and Digging Up The Marrow definitely looking to be fucking fantastic, especially for a monster film; which I tend to be a fan of as well! The movie is getting itself a theatrical release on February 20th, 2015 with a planned DVD/Blu-Ray release in late March. But, if you’re still not convinced somehow, check out the film’s official trailer, below and leave a comment or two, explaining what you did or didn’t like about the trailer:
