Joel David Moore,
Having spent 5 years making the film together and having toured together with the finished film, it is almost uncanny just what a tight artistic bond Adam Green and Alex Pardee seem to share. Their real life friendship and sincere mutual respect for each other as artists has been an aspect of "Marrow" that fans of the film have truly responded to and enjoyed experiencing at appearances and in interviews.

Seriously, this guy is such a character, when you see the stuff we've already shot with him, you're gonna love him. He's gonna be your new best friend in the world. You're gonna be friends with him on Facebook and...
You're gonna follow him on Twitter. He's gonna be in your favorites.
No, definitely not.
You're gonna play Xbox with him.

Somewhere between a documentary and a found-footage film
-Digging Up The Marrow (2015) movie review: -This mockumentary follows a filmmaker who meets a man who claims he can prove 'monsters' exist.
-I think mockumentaries are either more fun documentaries or more fun found footage films. Either way, Digging Up The Marrow kept me from sleeping, sooo .
-The story is presents just like any of the shows about finding Bigfoot or whatever. So even though it may seem like a cliché film premise, it is presented in a way that seems like it is going to be the same as all the others. It kinda is, but it admits it is.
-The pace was fine. I did not get bored.
-None of the acting from the unknown cast was memorable or great, but I did not think anybody was bad. Especially having seen some of those monster quest shows.
-There was not a lot of music, but whenever there was music, it almost broke the fourth wall because there should not be music in mockumentary/found footage films.
-The practical effects in the film are impressive. And that was what the entire film was banking on, so I was not let down. The film also banks on a few pretty cliché jumpscares, but there are some unconventional scares that were effective.
-My biggest beef with the movie is, and I won't spoil anything, the old guy's idea of the monsters. Basically this sorta-crazy Scooby-Doo villain claims that all monsters are made of social rejects and people who had birth defects and deformities. Basically he thinks there is a big underground society (called The Marrow) of them not. That premise really unsettles me. Because it is one thing to just have the idea of monsters, but it is another to have the idea of formerly deformed people underground. Makes it creepy to me, but not in a great way.
-Digging Up The Marrow had a few things going against it, such as its overall cliché premise and unimpressive elements, but the film is successfully creepy and unsettling. I felt like this film had an amount of effectiveness to it, and therefore I will say that Digging Up The Marrow is worth watching on Nexflix. (Not worth paying for, but worth seeing.) -It holds a PG-13 rating for some scary images and some language. Nothing too heavy.
