Oct. 26: The Brood


The Brood (David Cronenberg, 1979)
Friday, Oct 26 9 :10; City Cinema
Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar, Art Hindle

A man tries to uncover an unconventional psychologist’s therapy techniques on his institutionalized wife, amidst a series of brutal murders.

 A significant jump for Cronenberg in maturity as a filmmaker while still retaining his early grotty body horror. In other words, a perfect balance of Cronenberg’s arthouse and grindhouse sensibilities. As a filmmaker, Cronenberg has always been at the forefront of doing what horror does best – making metaphors – and The Brood is a prime example with its vengeful rage-made-flesh children pummelling members of a divorcing household to a bloody pulp. ” Dave Stewart – Bloody Terror
