The Brood

David Cronenberg’s chilling, emotionally shattering tale of family, parenthood and divorce stars a feverish Oliver Reed as an unconventional psychotherapist whose radical treatment of a young mother (Samantha Eggar) seems tied to a series of devastating attacks by a pack of pint-sized monstrosities. The Brood is a heady, unsettling mix of body horror and deeply psychological terror from the master of Canadian cult cinema.

“Genuinely disturbing horror but with Cronenberg producing a deeper edge in his portrait of a troubled family.” – Kim Newman, Empire

“Powerful and disturbing on both a physical and mental level, The Brood is the first Cronenberg film to use name actors, and marked a significant progression in the director’s exploration of biological horror.” – TV Guide
