Offspring is as lame as they come.
For whatever reason, these Jack Ketchum adaptations never gel for me. This one has moments, but still fails to build suspense. The cast is game.
This is from the Ghost House Underground Series, and this is by far there grosses movie to date. This is extreme slasher, and pretty gross. Hate little horror kids and this one is jammed pack with them. Worst then the move little children, would keep this one out of the hands of expecting mothers. 4 stars
Not completely without it's merits, but most of them are buried below a sea of shit. I like Jack Ketchum, his stories do have an extra something. The script is let down by some poor acting and hilariously awkward moments that just don't fit. You can set up a character as a slimeball without such a heavy handed pervert/hitchhiker scene. The acting from the offspring/wild people is comic at best. One boy jumps into shot going "Hee hee hee", like some pantomime witch. The gore is done rather well, and there were nice parts, such as the first kill. It made a nice and chilling change to see a scene not played for jumps, but for the awkward silence. Perhaps worth a watch, as it is short.
Issue #1: Offspring is a sequel to author Jack Ketchum's Off Season. Why the sequel first? Rights issues you say? Too friggin bad then wait on that situation to get cleared up before you just say oh well and make the follow-up first.
Issue #2: It's shot on what looks like digital and digital is fine for your home videos but when a movie is shot this way it gives it a look of pure amateurism.
Issue #3: Speaking of amateurism the acting is absolutely atrocious (other than Art Hindle).
Issue #4: The "score" is nothing more than a poor, annoying recreation of Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
The only things that are passable are the screenplay (written by Ketchum himself) and the gore. Everything else is way under sub par and make even The Lost seem pretty good.
