In-depth interviews with Jack Ketchum and the other creators of Mail Order about women in horror and truth vs. fiction.
THEY HUNT IN PACKS. THEY FEED ON FLESH. THEY PREY ON INNOCENCE. Back with a vengeance and an insatiable appetite for human flesh…THEIR TIME HAS COME AGAIN. 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. Just when they thought the nightmare was over, theyre about to discover that the fight for their lives has only just begun.
An older, reclusive man, Avery, (Brian Cox) has a best friend in his dog Red. When three teens kill Red for no reason, Avery sets out for justice and redemption, attempting to follow the letter of the law. But when the law fails him, and the boys’ father (Tom Sizemore) clearly defines right and wrong in his own way, Avery must use whatever means possible.
Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin’ is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a “good girl.” However, Darlin’ holds a dark secret and she is not traveling alone. The Woman, equally fierce and feral, who raised her, is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.
Continuing the twistedly vicious adventure of Lucky McKee’s cult hit The Woman, Darlin’ sees standout star Pollyanna McIntosh both in front of and behind the camera.
