The film was written and shot under the title 'From a Whisper to a Scream', but it was changed to 'The Offspring' for the American release. However, when it was released on DVD it was released under its original title. See more »

Near the end of the credits, we are told "WHEN IN TENNESSEE VISIT OLDFIELD". Oldfield is not a real town. See more »
A fun multi-story horror narrated by Vincent Price (as a librarian!) to cult icon Susan Tyrrell (as an 80s reporter) featuring four shorts about a cursed town. Small parts by horror icons abound, necrophilia, a killer mutant baby thingamajacque, circus freaks, dismemberment, and a group of kids that make the Children of the Corn look like the Little Rascals. How could you not love this?! This feels like a precursor to the Tales from the Crypt series, but it goes for horror more so than humor. The last segment is the creepiest, but all of them are good in their own right. Anyone who digs on anthology horror should find plenty to like in "The Offspring"/"From a Whisper to a Scream."
