Lucky McKee and Angela Bettis Reteam on Jack Ketchum’s Offspring: The Woman

The team who brought us the incredible May, director Lucky McKee and actress Angela Bettis, are hooking up once more to take us deep into the wonderfully sick mind of Jack Ketchum!

Fangoria reports that Modernciné’s follow-up to its horrendous Offspring feature from last year will be directed by Lucky McKee with Angela Bettis raking in one of the lead roles. Well, at least they’re moving in the right direction now. The combination of McKee and Bettis is always a good one.

Offspring: The Woman was scripted by Ketchum and McKee and “centers on the title character, the last member left alive of the savage cannibal clan that terrorized a Maine town (to be played by returning actress Pollyanna McIntosh). As she roams the woods, she is stalked by a local hunter and family man named Christopher Cleek, who believes he can capture and ‘civilize’ her. Bettis will play Christopher’s wife, Belle; Andrew van den Houten, William M. Miller, and Robert Tonino are producing the film.

“Offspring: The Woman is an exploration of the very definition of horror,” McKee tells Fango. “It is designed to incite feelings of fear, shock, nervousness, dismay, anxiety, and disgust. It is designed to make you question what it is to be civilized, what it is to be feral, and all the shades of gray in between. On a surface level the film will make you jump, it will make you squirm, and, for the more sensitive, it might even induce nausea. It will make you question my intentions in making it as well as your own desire to watch it. To sum it up in an unsophisticated way: I’m going to scare the hell out of you.”

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Floydian Trip

    Its been far too long since they’ve done something as a team that was good. Loved May buy boy do I hate Roman.

  • The Woman In Black

    I’m so glad to see these two are getting together again. It’s been far too long since they’ve been on the horror scene – either separately or as a team.
