An Ear To The Blood Soaked Ground - Offspring [2010]

With the recent successes of Jack Ketchum adaptations - The Lost (2005), The Girl Next Door (2007), Red (2008)...yet another novel comes to the big screen - Offspring...and I couldn't be happier.

Each of his first three adapations are wonderfully disturbing films, each unique, each compelling, and each unrelenting in nature. I can only guess that Offspring will encompass these characteristics and shock us once again.

"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" - Source: IMDB.com
