Festival of Fear: Offspring preview
Offspring (out on DVD Oct. 6 through Anchor Bay) is the movie of horror writer Jack Ketchum’s sequel to his 1981 debut novel Off Season. It’s a low budget but tense little terror treat about a family of cannibals who terrorize a family and their friends, and find themselves hunted by the lawman (Black Christmas’s Art Hindle) who hunted down their clan 11 years earlier.
