Believing is seeing.

When filmmaker Adam Green receives a package in his fan mail from a strange man claiming that he can prove that monsters indeed exist, he and his crew are taken on a mysterious, fantastical, and terrifying journey into the shadows and deep down under the ground below our very feet.   Inspired by the art of Alex Pardee and starring Ray Wise (TWIN PEAKS, X-MEN FIRST CLASS), DIGGING UP THE MARROW has shaped up to be the most unique ArieScope film to date as its real-life documentary style blends reality with fantasy in a way that will leave even the most hardcore skeptic believing in the existence of monsters.  ”You will believe.”

Written and directed by Adam Green.

Theatrical, VOD, and DVD/Blu-Ray in early 2015.  Exact dates TBA.

HORROR/COMEDY/FANTASY/MUSICAL/SCI FI
DRIVE-IN. FREAK OUT.

It’s the closing night at the last drive-in theater in America and owner Cecil B. Kaufman has planned the ultimate marathon of four rare and outrageous film prints to unleash upon his faithful cinephile patrons.  Starring Richard Riehle (OFFICE SPACE), Joel David Moore (AVATAR), Lin Shaye (INSIDIOUS), Ray Wise (TWIN PEAKS), Kane Hodder (HATCHET), and more cameos than you can count, CHILLERAMA is the ultimate midnight anthology movie that critics call “a late night classic for the new millennium” (Killer Film), and “the most offensively nostalgic fun time I’ve experienced in theaters in I don’t know how long” (Dread Central).

HATCHET II (2010)

HORROR/COMEDY
HOLD ON TO ALL OF YOUR PIECES.

Starting on the very frame that the original HATCHET ended on, “Marybeth” escapes from the clutches of “Victor Crowley” and learns the horrific truth about her family’s link to the deformed hatchet-wielding madman. She returns to the swamp with an arsenal of hunters in an effort to recover the bodies of her family and seek revenge against “Crowley” in what becomes one of the most in-your-face and gore soaked slasher films ever made. Starring Danielle Harris (HALLOWEEN IV & V), Kane Hodder (FRIDAY THE 13TH VII-X), Tony Todd (CANDYMAN), and Tom Holland (CHILD’S PLAY), critics hailed the film as “One of the greatest slasher films ever” (Bloody-Disgusting) and having “Twice the gore, twice the intensity” (Dread Central). Unable to obtain an “R” rating by the Motion Picture Association of America without enormous censorship and changes, Adam Green’s HATCHET II made a groundbreaking achievement by being the first theatrical horror film to circumvent the MPAA and be released UNRATED and UNCUT in major U.S. cinemas since George Romero’s DAWN OF THE DEAD in 1978.  The film made history again merely 72 hours later when it became the first film to ever be pulled from theaters in its opening weekend, causing controversy in the media internationally.

NO ONE KNOWS YOU'RE UP THERE.

Critics have called it “JAWS in the snow”, audience members fainted during the film’s Sundance premiere, and legendary critic Rex Reed of the NY Observer said he was “so paralyzed with terror that I chewed a whole pencil in half watching it.” When three skiers find themselves stranded on a chair lift at a New England ski resort that has closed for the next week, they are forced to make life or death choices that prove to be more perilous than staying put and freezing to death. Shawn Ashmore (X-MEN), Kevin Zegers (TRANSAMERICA), and Emma Bell (THE WALKING DEAD) star in this relentlessly chilling survival thriller that Ain’t It Cool News calls “Hitchcock…with teeth.”

COMEDY/ROMANCE
poster-cd
10 WATTS OF AMBITION, HEARTBREAK, AND A RETARDED CAT.

Life after college sucks.  Follow one guy’s traumatically funny entrance into the “real world” where high school girlfriends don’t come back and the pursuit of a life-long dream proves to be harder than anyone could have ever imagined.  Made by a truly skeleton crew of friends on a meager $400 budget, COFFEE & DONUTS would go on to garner Hollywood’s attention, turn ArieScope Pictures into a full fledged production company, and launch Adam Green’s filmmaking career.  The “most passionate of passion projects”, C&D spent over a decade being developed and re-developed for various major television networks and studios before finding a home and becoming the hit TV sit-com HOLLISTON on the FEARnet cable television network.

Based on a true story, this is the infamous indie film that started it all for Adam Green and ArieScope Pictures.

Written, directed, edited by, and starring Adam Green
