Customer Reviews

That now grown psycho returns to his hometown to start a murdering spree.
Brandon Sites
Don't watch this movie unless you have nothing else to do or really like crappy slasher flicks (as I do).
J. Cook
There is little gore, the killings are mostly unseen, and very little blood.

This movie has a budget of maybe $930, lame-to-amputated acting, and a cheesy 80s-synthesizer soundtrack...but it's fun all the same! This movie even presages "Scream/Scary Movie" in a way (teens who've just eaten pizza with sausage [human meat] are watching & commenting on a horror movie on TV; local cops = morons). There's not much gore but there IS some nice direction/camera work and some of the killings are imginative. It's a big-hair, acid-washed-jeans nightmare! For a cheesy/cheap-O rip of "Halloween" it's actually amusing in an Ed Wood-y/MST3000 way.

Offerings came out in 1989, at a time when teen slasher flicks were at their all-time worst and every week there seemed to be a new turd flooding the cinematic toilet bowl. Offerings was just one of many films to rip-off the horror classic `Halloween', in order to cash in on the trend. But while most movies had the decency to hide their plagiarism, Offerings just said 'whatever' and went all out! The similarities are just too many to count. Lemme try to break it all down.

First, I should explain the plot of the movie.

A bunch of kids on bikes start terrorizing this little shy kid for never talking. The little shy kid has an abusive mother, who is masterfully played by Demi Moore, who likes to torture animals, and has a little pig-tailed girlfriend who looks like Cindy from the brady bunch. When the children of the corn pressure the shy kid to walk around a well, he does it, but the kids push him in anyway, and they run away.

10 years later, the shy kid is being treated in a medical center and eacapes by stabbing his nurse in the brain with a needle. He then goes back to his old town and starts killing all the little jerks that pushed him down the well. After each killing he gives a body part to his old girlfriend, that's why the movie is called offerings. A fat sheriff is sent in the town, wonderfully played by Louie Anderson, but he doesn't do anything what so ever. After all the teens have been killed, the killer comes for his old girlfriend, with predictable results.

Now that you know the generic plot to the movie, lets reach deeper into this rotten stinkhole and analyze at the acting. Well, its sub-par to say the least. The actors are so stiff and uninspired that its painful to try and watch them attempt communication amongst one another.

"Offerings" is a rather poor attempt to rip-off the greatest horror movie of all-time in John Carpenter's original classic, "Halloween". These people did not even attempt to hide their plagiarism of Carpernter's classic. The acting is not very good at all, and the movie is certainly unoriginal. Even the music is similar to that in "Halloween". Obviously, this movie was unable to capture the atmospheric brilliance of "Halloween", and is only mildly entertaining as a conventional slasher flick. For a superior attempt to rip-off "Halloween", I recommend "He Knows You're Alone" which is a good horror flick in its own right with its own charm (even though it borrows extensively from "Halloween") and certainly much better than "Offerings" at attempting to clone "Halloween". Overall, "Offerings" comes across as generic and predictable.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on December 21, 2004
Format: DVD
This Halloween rip-off offers a weird plot.A boy gets pushed down a well and grows up and kills the kids(now teens) that pushed him. The reason this copies HALLOWEEN is because the music it sounds very similar and how the killer escaped from the mental hospital just like Michael Myers did. The death scenes were laughable(a teen gets his head squeezed,another gets shot with a rifle) and the acting was horrid. The reason this gets 2 and a half stars is because the stupid sheriff gets told off by a little kid. A watchable if routine horror flick.

Offerings (1989) * / 4
D: Christoper Reynolds
C: Loretta Leigh Dowman, Elizabeth Greene, G. Michael Smith, Tobe Sexton
P: After being pushed down a well by neighborhood bullies and institutionalized, a young man escapes from an asylum and returns to his hometown to murder those very bullies.

A defining, but shocking moment in a kid's life that resulted in him being sent to an asylum. That now grown kid escapes from the same mental asylum. That now grown psycho returns to his hometown to start a murdering spree. Sound familiar? Well... just in case you haven't picked up on the film that Offerings is so blatantly copying, it's Halloween.

When reviewing a film that is a copy of another film, comparisons are unavoidable. In Halloween, Michael Myers murdered his family for apparently no reason. As an adult, he returned to his hometown to kill for what was apparently no reason yet again. The film talks about the boogeyman and in essence Myers became the boogeyman.

In Offerings, we see the antagonist, his troubled childhood and a traumatizing series of events. The killer here is all too human with nothing distinctive about him other then the fact that he offers up body parts as offerings to a childhood friend. In doing so, the killer just ends up being another crazed person who had a troubled past. Watching this film, it does nothing but bring back memories of other films and realizing that this film is nowhere near their league. [R] 95 mins.
