      Audience Member It's really low budget, with some spotty acting, but it tries to make up for that with its gruesome subject matter. It'll be hard to watch for some, just because of how grim it is, but it's an interesting story of a group of roaming cannibals going around, doing as they please. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 10/26/20 Full Review Audience Member Gorey and lots of blood Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member I first heard of Jack Ketchum, whose story this movie is based off of, when I was looking at some website and it mentioned the book, The Girl Next Door. Although I haven't read it yet, his name and the book title has stuck with me, since it's suppose to be disturbing. If The Girl Next Door is as anything like Offspring, then yes it will be. After the watching the movie, (I'll get to that in a second), I did a quick search on Ketchum and got this from Wikipedia; "Later, in his teenage years, Ketchum was befriended by Robert Bloch, author of Psycho, who became a mentor to him. He supported Ketchum's work just as his work was supported by his own mentor, H.P. Lovecraft." That would definitely help to explain how his unique mindset was encouraged to grow. From the first part of the movie, where the cannibal children are sitting on the kitchen counters cackling in happiness surrounded by blood and guts to the rest of the movie with them jumping out and biting people, I said out loud, "And that is one more reason why I didn't have kids." But it was so much more than kids doing that, there was also their inbred parents, along with lots of topless women, and creepy sexual encounters. If you enjoy a gore fest, this is one you'll probably want to watch, since there was lots of blood, body parts, and eating of flesh. The pulling out the the intestines was a nice touch. Movies with inbred people creep me out the most. I can handle clowns and dolls, but people with teeth missing and who only communicate in grunts, is just too close to something that could actually happen. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Well, that was...odd...& disturbing. Apparently the sequel is worth watching so I started here. Perhaps I should have just skipped right to The Woman. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Has some interesting things to say, and some fresh ideas to try out, but ultimately is an underwhelming gore-fest that's poorly acted and poorly filmed. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I couldn't even finish this low-budget flick. It's too bad as I loved "The Woman", have respect for Pollyana McIntosh, and Ketchum's novels are on my "to read" list. However, this movie is just un-watchable. A bigger budget may have helped.
