In what may be his most terrifying film, David Cronenberg exorcises a few of his own parental demons in a story of a woman (Samantha Eggar), engaged in a form of experimental therapy that has one awful side effect: a plague of terrifying demon kids. With Oliver Reed as the very responsible, not-all-that-insane doctor.

REVIEWS

THE BROOD marked the first major moment of transition between David Cronenberg’s exploitative body-horror movies and his probing psychological masterworks, and offers the best of both worlds.”Eric Henderson, Slant

“‘Full blast’ is an appropriate term for THE BROOD, a film that prowls patiently before it finally pounces.”Ryan Lambie, Den of Geek
