Vincent Price later expressed a strong dislike for the film in a letter written to German actor and puppeteer Gerd J. Pohl. Price said that his agent misrepresented it and Price was trapped in it. See more »
The opening scene has a woman on Death Row being given a lethal injection. She only gets one injection which causes her great pain before death, but the lethal injection protocol is 3 separate injections - one to render unconsciousness, one to relax the muscles, and the final one to stop the heart.

Near the end of the credits, we are told "WHEN IN TENNESSEE VISIT OLDFIELD". Oldfield is not a real town. See more »
One of Vincent Price's lesser known movies casts him as an old man telling a reporter (Susan Tyrrell) about a town's horrific history, shown in vignettes. There's a man (Clu Gulager) who gets obsessed with a woman at work, a loser who takes his greed too far, a carnival that no employee can ever leave, and a Civil War parable.
"The Offspring" (originally called "From a Whisper to a Scream") is nothing particularly special. In fact, Price considered it a terrible movie, and mainly starred in it because he was impressed with the confidence of the first-time director. Watching it, you gotta admire the effort that went into the movie. For the most part, it's just fun to watch, and there ARE a few gross scenes (I mean REALLY gross). Also starring Lawrence Tierney and Rosalind Cash.
I also thought that it was neat that we hear the mention of Lucy and Desi on the radio, since we just passed the 100th anniversary of Lucille Ball's birth (in fact, earlier this year was the 100th anniversary of Vincent Price's birth).
