#18. From a Whisper to a Scream - Review

From a Whisper to a Scream PosterFrom a Whisper to a Scream (aka The Offspring on IMDB.com) is an anthology film in the vein of Creepshow I & II and The Twilight Zone Movie. Anthology horror movies are probably my favorite sub-genre of horror. From a Whisper to a Scream presents four short stories as remembered by the notorious Vincent Price. Like many anthology films, the stories taken on their own are not strong enough to carry a feature film, and they are all pretty funny, if not completely ridiculous. The film's dedication to the ridiculous is where I found my satisfaction. This movie never laughs at itself, never winks at the audience to let us know its in on the joke.Vincent Price

This is most definitely a horror film, but admittedly it does lack in the scares. If your in the mood for nightmares than From a Whisper to a Scream isn't going to do the trick. But, where this film lacks in frights it more than makes up for it with mood. Each tale successfully creates a convincing, completely bizarre world, filled with murderous children, zombie babies, bayou voodoo, and a complete circus sideshow. Sure you will be laughing a lot of the time, but this is Vincent Price's last real effort into horror, and I for one think he went out with a bang.
