Based on the acclaimed novel and adapted for the screen by best-selling author Jack Ketchum, OFFSPRING follows the survivors of a brutal flesh-eating clan that has resurfaced in the once sleepy town of Dead River, Maine. The locals are in for a rude awakening when they realize it's the same pack that the sheriff thought he'd killed off a decade ago.

    Sounds good, I enjoyed most of the first batch of titles. I've heard good things about The Children on another forum.

    I've seen The Children and it's friggin' excellent. One of the best horror flicks in the past couple years. It's creepy as all hell, and I'm sure it's going to find a pretty big audience. Really cool to hear it's getting an R1 release!!

    specs are in for each title and thankfully the children has the most

    SEVENTH MOON
    Director Eduardo Sanchez, winner of the 1999 Cannes Film Festival Award of Youth for The Blair Witch Project, “returns with a brilliantly conceived and executed supernatural thriller” (Fantastic Fest). According to an ancient Chinese myth, on the full moon of the seventh lunar month, the gates of hell open and the dead are freed to roam among the living. While honeymooning in China, a young newlywed couple takes part in a sacred event that honors these spirits. Unfortunately their enthusiasm borders on mockery and their disagreeable charm ends in angry glances among the locals. As night falls, their tour guide abandons them in a desolate field. What they thought was a joke is becoming far too real as they fight to survive the night of the Seventh Moon.

    THE THAW

When Dr. Kruipen discovers the carcass of a woolly mammoth in a polar ice cap, he helms a team of four bright ecology students and leads them in a research mission at a remote Arctic station. The group uncovers information beyond their wildest dreams…and nightmares…when a pre-historic parasite revives and searches for a new warm-blooded host.

    THE CHILDREN
    You brought them into the world. They will take you out. A family anticipates a Christmas filled with sledding, laughter and hot cocoa as they head to their vacation home in the secluded backcountry. The holiday cheer takes a fast turn for the worst after a mysterious flu-like virus sweeps through the kids. One by one the children become deadly.

    I didn't care all that much for The Thaw. It just seemed like it had all been done before...better. Some of the CG effects looked bleh.

    The Children was fantastic. I haven't checked out the other two though.

    Just finished watching The Offspring. It was really, really bad. The savages were laughable with their buckwheat hair and "ugh, ugh me caveman" language. Some bad acting, bad dialog,....pretty much bad everything. Couple of good bits of violence and at least the blood isn't cgi, but really the good parts are few and far between. If you want to see it, rent before buying.

    I watched Seventh Moon earlier. The mythology is very intriguing and there are some eerie moments. I'd say the music is perfect for the tone of the film. The opening credits sequence, combined with the score, really gives off a foreboding feel. It sort of drags towards the middle, as it's pretty much just a long chase scene at that point. Lots of shaky camera movements too. That's never bothered me, but it's there for those that don't like it. There is a terrific shot towards the end of Amy Smart being chased by a pack of the moon demons.

    Overall, I'd say it's worth seeing, but it's the weakest of Sanchez's films thus far.
