“A cinematic bad dream that generates recurring nightmares.” – The New Yorker
“[Cronenberg’s] third and most totally successful venture into body-horror exploitation.” – Artforum
“Cronenberg’s ideas were so far beyond what cinema was capable of expressing that it took him until his fifth feature for his technique to catch up with his genius. Though Shivers and Rabid, his twin psychosexual zombie movies, are the best kind of assault on your senses and unconscious fears, The Brood is sensitively, seamlessly crafted.” – L Magazine
As the result of an unorthodox scientific experiment, a woman gives birth to a group of murderous, sexless mutant children. It is up to her ex-husband to discover the truth and stop this brood’s rampage before he and his daughter become the next victims in this disturbing, graphic horror film.
Dir. David Cronenberg. 1979. 92 min.
