31 Days of Halloween — Day 20: Digging Up the Marrow (2014) — by Dr. Shock

31 Days of Halloween - Digging Up the Marrow 2014

Editor’s note: Dave “Dr. Shock” Becker is a host on Horror Movie Podcast, Universal Monsters Cast and Land of the Creeps horror podcasts. He is also the mastermind behind DVDInfatuation.com, a movie review blog where he is watching and posting one review every day until he reaches at least 2,500 movie reviews. Follow Doc on Twitter: @DVDinfatuation.


Digging Up the Marrow may feature Adam Green (the creative mind behind Frozen and the Hatchet series) in the lead role, but it is only superficially about the writer / director making his next movie. At its heart, this 2014 faux documentary is about a lifelong fan of monsters (Green) trying to prove they actually exist, that the creatures he fell in love with as a child aren’t just figments of his imagination, and watching this particular quest unfold was enough to keep me on the edge of my seat.

Adam Green has received his share of fan mail over the years, but a package sent to him by a Mr. William Dekker (Ray Wise) contained something quite extraordinary. Dekker, a former private investigator from Boston, forwarded Green a notebook filled with drawings of strange creatures, all of which he claims are real and living in an underground society he calls “The Marrow.” Intrigued by the prospect of coming face-to-face with an honest-to-goodness monster, Green and his creative partner Will Barratt interview Dekker, believing that, even if his story doesn’t check out, he’ll at least be a great addition to their upcoming documentary.

The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 024: Flesh Ripped Clean to the Bone

TWHMP 024 ArtworkBRIEF EXPLANATION: This podcast is not the Horror Movie Podcast for which this site and feed are dedicated. Horror Movie Podcast is slated to release Episode 001 on October 25, 2013. You can read the full explanation and the background on the re-release of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast (and of Horror Metropolis) at the bottom of the show notes for this episode.

SHOW NOTES:

Here it is — the infamous Episode 024… This show is somewhat legendary among TWHMP fans: This is the episode that provokes an exasperated Midnight Corey to say things like, “Lord, take me home!” and “[This movie] was a huge hit at the Special Olympics.” Needless to say, we have some epic and passionate battles, starting right off the bat with a review of Dario Argento’s “Deep Red” (1975). This contentious review sets the tone for the rest of the episode, and it’s very entertaining, to say the least.

But at the top of the show, Midnight Corey begins by acknowledging the death of zombie novelist Z.A. Recht, author of The Morningstar trilogy, which includes Plague of the Dead: The Morningstar Strain, Thunder and Ashes and Survivors, which had to be finished by Thom Brannan. (Be sure to click the link below for Midnight Corey’s interview with Z.A. Recht.)

Next Midnight Corey sparks a conversation about our hosts’ opinions on 3-D and how it is affecting modern cinema and theater-going. (This episode is worth listening to for this discussion alone). And then we move into our four, hotly debated reviews. Continue reading
