I feel I should mention that I love horror anthology movies. Actually, to put it more accurately, I love the IDEA of horror anthology movies. That's because the vast majority of horror anthology movies I have seen have left me less that satisfied, and that also goes for "From A Whisper To A Scream" (a.k.a. "The Offspring"). It's a pretty cheap-looking movie - director Jeff Burr himself once said the budget was actually $350,000 - though if that's true, I will admit that they managed to stretch the budget pretty far, including the fact they got a once in a lifetime cast. But even if they had more money to spend, the movie would have suffered from the fact that the script is pretty lame for the most part. The second story (concerning someone who has figured out the secret for eternal life) is okay, namely because it has an unexpected (and effective) ironic ending. The other three stories have no surprises and each of them seem to go on forever. I would only recommend this movie to die hard fans of horror anthology movies.
