Storyline

Survivors of a feral flesh-eating clan are chowing their way through the locals. Amy Halbard and Claire Carey strive to survive their abduction by the cannibals and save their children. A subplot involving Claire's despicable husband, Steven, gives an opportunity to cleverly compare predatory civilized folk to the appetite-driven primitives. Written by MODERNCINÉ STAFF

Trivia

Part of the movie was filmed at the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in the upper peninsula of Michigan. The rock formation "Miner' s Castle" is clearly shown. See more »

Goofs

Although the setting is to be around Dead River, Maine (the characters point out the region around Machias), the scene where the police and former policeman/investigator George are discussing the whereabouts of the killers, the police cars in the scene are a sheriff's vehicle and a clearly marked Michigan police car - complete with the lower and upper peninsulas displayed on the front quarter panel.

Offspring (2009)
6 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not completely without it's merits, but most of them are buried below a sea of crap. I like Jack Ketchum, his stories do have an extra something. The script is let down by some poor acting and hilariously awkward moments that just don't fit. You can set up a character as a slimeball without such a heavy handed pervert/hitchhiker scene. The acting from the offspring/wild people is comic at best. One boy jumps into shot going "Hee hee hee", like some pantomime witch. The gore is done rather well, and there were nice parts, such as the first kill. It made a nice and chilling change to see a scene not played for jumps, but for the awkward silence. Perhaps worth a watch, as it is short.
