The idea for Digging Up The Marrow spawned in 2010 when Green received a fan letter from a Hatchet fan claiming that the fan could prove that Green's fictitious character "Victor Crowley" was in fact real. Much like the fan mail package from "William Dekker" depicted in the film, the Hatchet fan letter contained pictures, maps, and other manufactured evidence that the fan claimed proved "Crowley's" existence. Not wanting to get involved with a fan who may potentially be insane and not wanting to do a "Crowley" project outside of the Hatchet franchise and universe, Green discarded the fan's package but started thinking of a docu-style story where he receives a similar kind of package from a fan claiming that monsters are real and then embarks on a journey to see if the fan can prove his/her claims. Just a few weeks later, artist Alex Pardee approached Green at a convention with a pamphlet for his most recent art exhibit called "Digging Up The Marrow" where the story line followed a mysterious man named "William Dekker" who claimed to have discovered where monsters actually live. After reviewing Alex's concept and his incredibly original monster designs, Green contacted the artist and discussed combining their ideas to make a movie. See more »
Just please don't get hurt. I don't want to have to call your mom and tell her that, uh... Adam got stabbed by some crazy fan because he decided he was gonna go off into the woods and hang out with him all night long.
My mom would understand.

This is a film I have been wanting to see for a while now. I hadn't even seen a trailer, just read the story line and it sounded amazing. When I finally found it, I was excited and even watched the trailer just to make sure it was going to be worth watching. The trailer was awesome and I was ready to dive right in.
Unfortunately, everything in the trailer is pretty much all the great moments in this movie.
With such an awesome story idea I was greatly disappointed that the deliver wasn't as good. In fact, the film relied to heavy on plot and story line that I think it forgot it was a horror film. In fact the music used in the movie was cheesy and reminded me of a romantic comedy score.
The biggest problem with this film is the Director/Writer Adam Green, not that he didn't write or direct a good film, it was that he starred in it and was the most obnoxious character I have seen on film in the past ten years (and that includes ALL of Will Farrell's films in the last ten years).
I really felt that Adam Green had such a great idea, something unique even though the story line itself is not all that original, but the idea was wasted. Throughout the whole film I kept thinking that this was nothing more than a huge advertisement for his other films, especially his TV show on FearNet which was said about a thousand times in this film.
I won't say it's a complete waste of time, in fact when the scary moments happen, and they are far and few in between, it was interesting and fun to watch. The rest of it however, was annoying and boring. Such a wasted opportunity.
I would like to a sequel, something that would follow the horror aspect of the story line a lot more. There is just so much more this film could have given us and instead wasted the whole time promoting his other movies. The ending left me wanting more and not in a good way.
