Starring, written by, and directed by Adam Green and inspired by the artwork of artist Alex Pardee, the film stars Ray Wise (“Twin Peaks,” X-Men First Class), Will Barratt (Frozen), and a roster full of horror genre favorites and iconic artists all appearing as themselves.
When filmmaker Adam Green receives a package from a strange man (Wise) claiming he can prove that monsters exist, he and his crew are taken on a mysterious, fantastical, and terrifying journey into the shadows deep down under the ground below our feet. Digging Up the Marrow is a documentary-style film that blends reality with fantasy in a way that will leave even the most hardcore skeptics believing in the existence of monsters.
“DIGGING UP THE MARROW is the result of an incredibly rewarding four-year creative collaboration,” said Green. “It’s a very unique film that doesn’t neatly fit into any specific sub-genre that has come before it. We’ve been thrilled by the overwhelmingly positive response that MARROW has received at early screenings.”
The monsters in the film are vividly brought to life by visionary American artist and trans-media-artistry pioneer Alex Pardee. Under Green’s ArieScope Pictures, the film was produced by Cory Neal and was financed by Neal and Andrew Mysko’s Hacienda Film Co.
