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.

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.

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.

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.

No need to wonder what hell is like kiddies this is an introduction to and preview of it. Homicidal maniacs + murderers + some good old fashioned cannibalism = this stomach turning story. A woman visiting friends in a nice house set in the woods later on along with her friends has a horrific experience a family of murderous cannibals men women and kids living in the woods and dressed like tribal people raid the house and go on a killing spree/an all you can eat buffet. The survivors are dragged off to the cave where they live and tied up

This move is one big gore fest violent deaths beatings abuse etc and tons of blood, the blood and body parts being eaten look so damned real. my stomach will never be the same this is by far the nastiest cannibal movie ever and I thought ( Night Of The Living Dead ) was gross. Unless you have a very strong stomach do not eat while viewing cause I nearly barfed

I needed to waste some time which is why I chose to watch. I agree with the low star reviews. Nothing really spectacular or scary here. The "wild" kids needed a better acting instructions/teacher/coach if they had one in the first place. A number of unrealistic parts take place. And what really annoyed me was the "cops" at the very end when they go off in the woods with the kid (trying not to be a spoiler) but why didn't at least one of them follow the kid up? Oh & the jerk gets off way too easy in the end....torture would've been more fitting....just saying.

What can I say? a few savage children took out 4 cops who were expecting trouble and had guns. Dumbest thing ever (or worst cops ever). Plus how do they know what phones are or how to take them out if they've been living in the wild in caves for generations and don't even speak a normal language? You really think they know about wires & which ones to cut? Dumb, dumb. Almost none of the people in the movie even fought back, that's super realistic. Only gave it 2 stars for interesting premise which was horribly mishandled.

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!
