Film #330: FROM A WHISPER TO A SCREAM aka THE OFFSPRING
From A Whisper To A Scream (aka The Offspring)
3 out of 5 stars
A nostalgic re-watch! A trilogy of stories directed by ‘80s sequel master Jeff Burr (STEPFATHER II, LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III, PUPPETMASTER 4 & 5, PUMPKINHEAD 2... you get the idea) starring a roster of well-known faces like Vincent Price, Susan Tyrell, Clu Gallagher, Rosalind, Cash, Cameron Mitchell, etc. The film is VERY ‘80s from the acting styles to the hair to some of the cloths, but is competently made & acted with stories that, while somewhat clichéd and well-trodden, are still fun. I mean, voodoo, necrophilia, murder… what’s not to like. What’s here isn’t groundbreaking, but it is still engaging and a decent enough diversion.
