Jeff Burr was a young, new filmmaker when he boldly approached Vincent Price and asked him to star in his film. Price was so impressed with Burr's confidence that he readily agreed to take the role. His scenes for the framing story were the last to be filmed. 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."
