Ray Wise hunts maniac monsters in 1st Digging Up The Marrow trailer

Check out this wild new trailer for the docu-horror film, Digging Up The Marrow, with Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, Jeepers Creepers 2) stalking a menagerie of subterranean creatures bent on serious evil.

Wise plays a professor who is convinced actual monsters exist beneath the Earth and is obsessed with hunting the grotesque humanoids down.   The film was written and directed by Adam Green, the horror director who struck indie gold with his insane Hatchet slasher movies, and he also stars in this playful fright film that features the avant-garde illustrations and creature design of artist Alex Pardee.  This unholy union of demented talent might produce a fun and satisfying supernatural outing perfumed with the sweet outrageousness of the best excessive '80s horror offerings.

Here's the official synopsis:

"When filmmaker Adam Green receives a package from a strange man (Ray Wise) claiming he can prove that monsters exists, 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 hits VOD and limited theatrical release on February 20th, 2015, followed by its DVD and Blu-Ray premiere March 24.  Green and Pardee will also be doing a five-city roadshow with the film on February 12-19, 2015 that includes a Q&A session with the filmmakers and an art exhibit of Pardee's deformed devils.   For locations, times and tour dates for their "Touring Through The Marrow" event click here.
