Editorial Reviews

THEY HUNT IN PACKS. THEY FEED ON FLESH. THEY PREY ON INNOCENCE. Back with a vengeance and an insatiable appetite for human flesh...THEIR TIME HAS COME AGAIN. Based on the acclaimed novel and adapted for the screen by best-selling author Jack Ketchum, OFFSPRING follows the survivors of a brutal flesh-eating clan that has resurfaced in the once sleepy town of Dead River, Maine. The locals are in for a rude awakening when they realize it's the same pack that the sheriff thought he'd killed off a decade ago. Just when they thought the nightmare was over, theyre about to discover that the fight for their lives has only just begun.

Since I am a fan of Jack Ketchum's novels and this was one of my favorites I had to see it (although I have no interest in seeing his other film adaptions).

It's direct to DVD and I knew what to expect. I wasn't that disappointed, mostly because the running time is short and it has some ok production design. The location scout deserves most of the credit in this movie and it was filmed in the US (I have a thing about runaway film productions, they should be labeled as "foreign films")

This film had so much potential but is extremely lackluster. Who thought crazy, cannibal kids could be so trite? The costumes, wigs, and makeup effects look like leftovers from the bargain bin at a Halloween store a week after October 31. This alone could have saved it even from the poor acting performances (which could have been saved through editing).

I have to admit it was nice not to be bombarded with bad CGI for once.

I gave two stars for effort, the location captures the setting in the book, short running time, and being filmed in the US. You won't loose any sleep if you don't see it.

It's not perfect but they really left all the gore from the book in, and that is no small feat in the current climate of PG-13 teenie bopper horror movies that are out there. My only complaints are that the movie has a somewhat pedestrian style of direction, the film stock could have looked a bit grittier, and the feral kids look too clean, sort of like the kids from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.
Having said that, this movie still really delivers the horror. The lead female cannibal is one of the most vicious and intimidating women that I've ever seen on film. She would bite off Ripley's head from Aliens. Men, women and children are all slaughtered without remorse. The pacing moves right along, with the whole story taking place in just a few days.
If you liked The Hills Have Eyes you'll like this. A great late night with beer movie!

The Offspring is one of those movies that's so awful you have to stare at the screen and keep watching to see if it can get any worse. It does. Cannibalistic, feral children whose idea of show and tell is disembowelment-and a simple disembowelment is a slow night to these kids. They grunt, stab, grunt, mutilate, grunt,and the quickly passed over reason for their existence is that they are the offspring of the children of a lighthouse keeper gone missing off the coast of Maine in the 19th century. I gave this movie two stars because despite the lousy plot, lousy script, lousy acting--the cannibal kids can't even grunt convincingly, the movie is so fascinatingly bad that everyone should watch it to see just how bad a movie can be. Oh scratch that thought----don't watch it.

Horror films should horrify. Ghost House's Offspring succeeds in doing so.

Not every horror film need be heavy stuff. Sometimes, a genre fan appreciates subtlety. But, sometimes, a habitual horror viewer wants something original, and he further wants that original thing to go somewhere unsafe such as The Devil's Rejects or The Exorcist does. Offspring is art that dares depart the grid. Offspring shocks its audience, and the film takes huge risks. For example, child characters both kill and die graphically on-camera in this film. A movie-watcher does not see that cinematic taboo broken often. And, Offspring offers plenty more extreme horror.

Furthermore, Offspring does something that not every genre piece does. Not every direct-to-video work does this. Offspring takes the time and care to create sympathetic characters. A viewer is much more sickened and horrified for seeing likeable characters tormented. These victims are not especially stereotypes, and most do not deserve their fate. Compliments to the film-makers.

Potential buyers should know also that Offspring originates from a Jack Ketchum novel. So if you like Ketchum, you should like Ghost House's Offspring.

After watching this director's other movie" the woman" on Netflix and gushing about how much I loved it, this was recommended as it is supposedly the prequel to it. It did have the same actress from "the woman", but lacked the polish, wit, and originality of it's sequel.

Pulp/horror writer Jack Ketchum adapts his own novel for Offspring, an interesting entry of sorts in this year's Ghost House Underground lineup. Offspring the novel, was actually a sequel to Off Season, which would have been a more logical adaptation in the first place, but nevermind that for now. Anyway, there's a clan of cannibal kids terrorizing the community, and seeking a fresh baby as well. Hounding them is a retired cop (Art Hindle) while everyone else involved gets chomped, slaughtered, and gutted; and the film makes no apologies for its tone and unsettling gore. Still though, besides some decent gore effects, Offspring features some atrocious acting from pretty much everyone involved (the cannibals in particular are so bad you can't help but laugh), and Ketchum's own screenplay doesn't help matters here either, and ends up being a shell of its source material. All in all, Offspring is worth a look just based on its disturbed content alone, but in the end, this Ketchum adaptation is a disappointment.
