The Offering 2023 Movie Review Poster Trailer Online

    The Offering is a new horror movie from Oliver Park, the director of A Night of Horror: Nightmare Radio.

    In the film, Art (Nick Blood) and his pregnant wife Claire (Emily Wiseman) go to visit his Orthodox Jewish father Saul (Allan Corduner) after fifteen years. Saul lives above a morgue where a new corpse is just brought in. This is corpse possessed by the demon Abyzou, who mainly drools children and babies.

    Claire and her baby are in danger of being possessed by this demon. If Art and his father have worked through their differences together, they have a better chance of protecting Claire and her baby.

    Director Oliver Park is more known in the movie world as an actor, but he does everything besides acting to do more in the movie world like directing. Unfortunately, for his second film, he chose to collaborate with aspiring writers. Unfortunately, this is against the lesser quality and lack of originality of the story in the lost film. This film is quickly reminiscent of a lesser mix between the films The Autopsy of Jane Doe from 2016 and The Possession from 2012. Both films are themselves energetic, creative and contain better acting.

    The horror elements in The Offering remain on the simple side and jump scares are often used. Most then lead to moments when the sound slowly decreases and becomes difficult to play again at the end. After the umpteenth time, this becomes more irritating because of the loud noises than it is really scary. Furthermore, the jump scares are also on the predictable side at a time, so you don’t really get scared anymore. The visual effects aren’t always spread out either. They sometimes work in dark scenes where you cannot immediately see that you are watching something in CGI, but in overexposed scenes this is clearly noticeable. For example, the fire in the film is clearly placed in the film with CGI.

    Also, thanks to the lesser script, the film’s actors don’t get much detail to work with. The characters begin the familiar horror clichés and often make illogical, stupid decisions. Thus, they only cause additional unnecessary problems in the film. Because of this lesser disc work, as a viewer you don’t really care about the characters and you almost hope that after the biggest cliché Abyzou just catches them.
