Two Exclusive Offspring Stills

Andrew van den Houten’s Offspring is pretty close to the top of my list for most anticipated adaptations of 2009. The Jack Ketchum book on which it’s based is one of my favorites, and this story has been a long time coming to the big screen!

New Offspring Pics, Screening Update

It seems to me that the guys over at ModernCine really know when they’re doing when it comes to getting films done.

Red Eyeing Off Season Adaptation

We all know by now that Jack Ketchum’s Offspring is the latest adaptation of the man’s work to come to the big screen. It’s in post production now and from what I’ve heard is looking pretty good.

Minions of Ka Presents Jack Ketchum's The Western Dead

Jack Ketchum. A man whose name has been synonymous with horror for as long as I can remember.
