"What's all this I hear about an ear?!"
14 March 2002 | by (FrightMeter.Com) – See all my reviews

It is dialogue like this which make "Offerings," an otherwise blatant "Halloween" rip-off, a worthy entry into the slasher genre. As far a plot goes, it has been done dozens of times before....a young boy is picked on as a child and a seemingly innocent child-hood prank ends it disaster when he falls into a well, becoming scarred for life. Like on the 15th anniversary of his accident, he escapes from the local mental ward to get revenge on those involved in his accident, and to prove his love for the one girl that was ever really truly nice to him. Apparently he thinks murdering her friends and using them as pizza topping will win her heart. The film is such a blatant "Halloween" rip-off, from everything to the music, to the plot elements, and even some scenes, it is surprising it ever got green-lighted in the first place. That is NOT, however, saying that it is a bad film that does not have it's own unique appeal. What exactly that appeal is is certainly hazey, but it is there. Maybe it is how the killer leaves various body parts on the steps of his lover interest and the main character, Gretchen. And then how the fat, dumpy sheriff shows up with lines like "What's all this I hear about an ear?" and "So now you found a nose?" or even "Let's take this pizza in and have the meat evaluated!" We even have the dedicated doctor who tries to put a stop to his patients murder spree, but unfortunately fails. *GASP* To top it off, "Offerings" also offers us the now abandoned, boarded up childhood home of the killer!! The killer is pretty relentless in his murder spree, killing his victims while their parents are downstairs scarfing down cake. He is a truly creepy looking fellow, and doesn't even need a mask to accomplish it! The ending is actually kinda sad as the heroine realizes that all of the madness throughout the film was because the killer loved her. Poor thing. If nothing else, this film will make you think twice about having an all meat pizza delivered, especially if you haven't heard from your friends for awhile. 5.5 out of 10.
