Demonoid

At a dig in rural Mexico, a British industrialist accidentally unleashes an ancient evil: a severed hand, possessed by a vengeful demon, that attacks, kills and takes over the hand and mind of anyone who interferes with its ruthless quest for violence. Determined to stop the bloodshed, the wife of the industrialist (Samantha Eggar) joins forces with a renegade priest (Stuart Whitman), but will they be able to conquer the evil hand before the forces of hell overtake them? Directed by Alfredo Zacarias (The Bees), Demonoid is a classic slice of early 80s horror sleaze, full of outrageous and violent deaths, ludicrous plot twists and a pounding musical score.

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
