A documentary exploring genre based monster art takes an odd turn when the filmmakers are contacted by a man who claims he can prove that monsters are indeed real.
During the edit suite scene where Adam Green and Will Barratt come up with the idea of traveling to Boston to speak to someone at the police department where Dekker claims to have once worked, a monster named "Tombstone" can be seen on the monitor behind Adam Green and Josh Ethier. The creature is camouflaged as one of the cemetery head stones but slowly stands up at one point and walks out of the cemetery unseen by Green, Barratt, or Ethier. Many audience members miss this and other purposely subtle hidden moments in the film but have slowly begun to discover them upon repeat viewings. The film was designed to offer new surprises whenever audiences re-watch it and look more closely. "Tombstone" can be seen up close in the accompanying 30-minute documentary "Monsters of the Marrow" included on the US DVD and BLU-RAY release of the film.
This creature, this one here, I call Vance.
Adam Green: Why Vance?
William Dekker: Because that's what I wanted to call him.
