Filmmaker Adam Green and artist Alex Pardee, whose work inspired the film, are also currently touring the film around the country with a special art exhibit, leading up to the premiere of the film tomorrow evening. Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to speak with Green about the tour, his experiences working on Marrow over the last few years and what it's like to make a film that feels like nothing else out there.

As a huge fan, I do like that there’s also stuff that’s for fans, whether it’s seeing ArieScope offices or seeing Sara Elbert show up. All that stuff is really cool, but you don’t have to be a diehard fan to appreciate the movie. The »

Since bursting on the scene with the throwback slasher Hatchet in 2006, writer/director Adam Green has built a career on doing this his own way. He has written and directed multiple features, produced films for up-and-coming filmmakers, created, written and starred on two seasons of his own sitcom Holliston, co-hosted The Movie Crypt, his own successful weekly filmmaking podcast and much, much more.
Digging Up the Marrow, Green's latest feature, is something totally different: a blend of documentary and narrative that defies any easy categorization. In the film, Green plays himself, a horror movie director with his own independent production company (ArieScope) who is contacted by a man named Decker (Ray Wise, the best he's ever been) claiming that monsters are real and that he knows exactly where to find them -- at an entrance to an underground world he calls "the Marrow."

Digging Up The Marrow could have suffered a more mundane fate in the wrong hands, but Green’s nurturing touch encourages individuality and creativity – or in more horror specific terms, it spreads like a devilish infection, eating deep into your mushiest cranial tissue.
Green’s found footage mockumentary analyzes man’s ability to rationalize the existence of monsters living among us, and he does so with the help of creature-artist-extraordinaire Alex Pardee – an illustrator whose work inspired a whole gaggle of heavily-detailed monsters ready to unleash themselves on excitable audiences. Green’s child-like enthusiasm is infectious as he seeks to answer questions many of us might be afraid of, but the documentary aspect eventually gives way to Pardee’s colorful, »
