Offerings ★ 1989 (R)

After a boy is tormented by a gang of children who cause him to fall down a well, his resulting brain injuries turn him into a psychopathic killer. Seeking revenge ten years later, he systematically murders his oppressors, offering bits of their anatomy to the one girl who treated him kindly. A typical slasher movie, the plot is only slightly better than the worst examples of the genre. 96m/C VHS, DVD . G. Michael Smith, Loretta L. Bowman; D: Christopher Reynolds.
