Digging Up the Marrow (2015)★★★★☆


I mentioned yesterday that there was another Adam Green film that I liked, and this is it. I still like it, and I’m still fairly certain that’s mostly due to Ray Wise. Have I mentioned I love Ray Wise?

He’s great in this, which is important since it’s his character that really makes the plot work and the story interesting. The faux documentary wrapper to this movie makes everyone seem a little less like they’re acting and thus a little more relatable, which is probably for the best since I don’t get the sense that any of them are great actors (aside from Ray Wise, of course).

This movie takes a while to get really interesting but when it does, it gets really interesting. The ending is great even if it does rely a bit on jump scares and the monsters are pretty damn scary.

I wish I had more to say about this one, but suffice it to say that it’s an entertaining watch that doesn’t get too graphic or violent.
