Exclusive: Adam Green on Getting Personal and Chasing Monsters for Digging Up the Marrow (Part One)

  • DailyDead
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."

Interview: Blothar on Gwar’s Future, Oderus & A Possible Video Game
Gwar has been hypnotizing their fans around the world with their costumes, story lines and most importantly their music for decades. The band has been able to successfully sustain their popularity, a fantastic feat for any musicians out there. Earlier this year they took a major hit when their fearless leader Oderus Urungus (David Murray Brockie) passed away, leaving a huge vacant spot in the lead singer department. It hit Gwar fans really hard, but rather than fade into obscurity, the band continued on. They quickly filled the void with not just one, but two new Scumdog singers – Blothar (Mike Bishop) and Vulvatron (Kim Dylla). In the blink of [ Read More ]

Bj Colangelo’s Horror Movie Guide to Overcoming Pancreatic Cancer

Happy November, Icons of Fright readers! As you all recover from the Breast Cancer Awareness pink washed items at your local grocery store fighting with the Halloween themed goodies, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to paint the world purple for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month. Boasting a 4% survival rate after five years, Pancreatic Cancer has quickly become one of the deadliest cancers in existence and is posed to be the most deadly cancer in just a few years. For those that are unaware, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at the age of 23, which is extremely rare. I’m one of the youngest people on record to be diagnosed with the disease, and more importantly, one of the youngest people on record to beat it. As of right now, I’m 24 and have been in remission for almost 9 months. They won’t consider me out of the woods for another four years or so,

Gwar got a new singer, and it's a woman named Vulvatron

Gwar got a new singer, and it's a woman named Vulvatron
After frontman and founder Oderus Urungus (aka Dave Brockie) of Gwar died earlier this year, many wondered what the future of the gross-out metal band would be. The band has always had a rotating door, but there would need to be a gap filled for another vocalist. Well, we have at least a partial answer. Gwar got a lady singer. And her name is Vulvatron. According to a profile from Wondering Sound, she made her debut during Riot Fest in Chicago over the weekend, and she is a sight to see. I feel, in this case, we have all won, and for several reasons: 1. Her "massive (prosthetic) breasts occasionally shoot geysers of blood," making her "a monster instead of a princess." 2. She's purple! Cool! 3. She is not the first female member of Gwar, but is the group's first major player, co-leading on vocals with Blothar (aka Mike Bishop, aka Beefcake

Gwar frontman Dave Brockie honored with Viking funeral at annual Gwar-b-q
Dave Brockie has been memorialized again - only this time in a manner that would've made his monstrous alter-ego Oderus Urungus chortle with glee. The late Gwar frontman was given a Viking funeral at the annual Gwar-b-q in Richmond, Va on Friday, in a ritual that saw his Oderus costume being laid on a ship and set ablaze in accordance with Norse tradition. The singer, who died of a heroin overdose in March at the age of 50, was eulogized at the event by friend and Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe, who stated: “Dave is the only motherfucker I know who has to get put away twice. He’s too big for one fucking funeral.” Blythe later posted an image of the burning ship to Instagram along with the message: "Tonight we sent Oderus home in a fitting manner at the public memorial for Dave Brockie.

Scumdogs Unite! Richmond, Virginia… Brace Yourself for the GWARbar

That's right! Although still mourning the passing of their leader, Dave Brockie (the incomparable Oderus Urungus), the unstoppable force that is Gwar is finding a new way to spread their unique brand of mayhem on the masses. We give you the GWARbar.

Planned for a swanky location in Richmond, Va, the historic Jackson Ward, the GWARbar will be the restaurant equivalent to what the band has been to music for the past 30 years… an off-kilter, but always entertaining new take on things. A more twisted place to eat and drink.

Yes, this is completely serious, and Gwar has teamed with none other than Richmond's 2013 Restaurateur of the Year, Travis Croxton, to ensure this dining establishment is everything it can possibly be.

The GWARbar was a dream of Brockie, and the remaining members of the band are doing all they can to make the restaurant a smashing success. Who knew that
