During the edit suite scene where Adam Green and Will Barratt come up with the idea of traveling to Boston to speak to someone at the police department where Dekker claims to have once worked, a monster named "Tombstone" can be seen on the monitor behind Adam Green and Josh Ethier. The creature is camouflaged as one of the cemetery head stones but slowly stands up at one point and walks out of the cemetery unseen by Green, Barratt, or Ethier. Many audience members miss this and other purposely subtle hidden moments in the film but have slowly begun to discover them upon repeat viewings. The film was designed to offer new surprises whenever audiences re-watch it and look more closely. "Tombstone" can be seen up close in the accompanying 30-minute documentary "Monsters of the Marrow" included on the US DVD and BLU-RAY release of the film. See more »

A documentary exploring genre based monster art takes an odd turn when the filmmakers are contacted by a man (Ray Wise) who claims he can prove that monsters are indeed real.
At first, the concept of a monster documentary is good and the first few minutes are really enjoyable. The footage of asking convention guests about monsters seems genuine, and it could have been a story worth pursuing if a narrative could be built around the interviews.
But once we shift, it becomes obvious that casting Ray Wise is the biggest mistake. Rue Morgue said it (and then let it slide). Aaron Christensen came down hard on Adam Green for this. I am somewhere between the two. I think the concept is really clever, and my admiration for Green lets me be a bit more open-minded. But there really is no getting around it: Wise, who is incredible in this role, simply cannot be anyone other than Ray Wise in a "documentary".
We also learn that Mick Garris is a terrible actor. That should probably come as no surprise, but it is amusing to see that Garris cannot even play Mick Garris for less than five minutes without goofing it up.
