Amanda's deathbed request to her son, John, was for him to destroy all the lab notes etc. from her last experiment. She also blurts out he had a brother. At the funeral John meets Melissa, who claims to be his mothers biggest fan. Together with some of John's friends they go to Amanda's house, but none are prepared for what they find there.

With a combination of gross-out effects and a solid, yet campy, screenplay Kindred delivers plenty of horror for your rental dollar. With a screenplay written in part by Psycho scribe Joseph Stefano and a wonderfully over the top Rod Steiger (who seems to be auditioning for Brando's part in Island Of Dr. Moreau, Kindred tells the story of a science experiment that went too far. A strong supporting cast helps round out the film. Most memorable is Kim Hunter (of Planet of The Apes fame) as the creator of 'Anthony' a hybrid who isn't much, but occasionally reveals his tentacles to kill a dog or eat a watermelon. The special effect highlight of the film is Melissa's (Amanda Pays) transformation into a fish-like monster.

  1. Uh oh, this wasn't the rip from before was it? I remember it being better and I thought it was 1gb or higher. Did you lose the other rip too? I sadly lost the great vhs rip I had of this. I thought I got it from this website. I thought the color was better in the other rip but I thought I got that rip from here. Anyways I'll download this rip and compare it to the other rips I have. I own this movie on vhs but the vhs wasn't greatest quality. Maybe the rip I'm remembering that had better colors and overall quality was the laser disc rip in english? Who knows. I also have the laser disc version but it's not in english. I tried to sync the english dub up but couldn't because with laser discs I guess they switch the disc at certain parts of the movie so it makes it very difficult to sync the movie.

    Yes, I have the better color laser disc rip but it is not in english and needs to be synced up by someone that is good at video editing. If you want it you can contact me. Here are screenshots from the laser disc rip I have.

    Here are some screenshots from the laser disc version:

    Here is my personal vhs rip of The Kindred. I tweaked the color setting to try to get it closer of the look of the laser disc rip but it's not as detailed. Also in my vhs tape it had a quick fizzy error that shows up but disappears a second later.

    Here's screenshots from my personal vhs rip with tweaked colors. I tweaked the colors in my vhs to mp4 software I own.

    Hi, yes unfortunately I don't have the previous rip anymore, it was a better quality mkv over 1gb. If I can find it I'll add it.

    Do you know the best program for me to use to edit video and audio to sync the laser disc version rip up with the english audio? Obviously I'm going to have to do video editing since they flip the second disc later on in the movie. I really like the look of the laser disc version because it has more detail in it. In the screenshots above I believe you can see it in the guys face and in the flowers. It's much more natural colors and the details are sharper. Would something like Adobe Premiere be good for it? Or should I use something better and possibly easier?

    Hi, I guess Adobe Premiere would be a good choice but I'm no specialist, never done any audio video sync. Good luck :)
