David Cronenberg’s The Brood (1979)
Tonight we are watching the 1979 David Cronenberg psychological Sci-Fi horror film, The Brood. A Canadian film but with a universal appeal.
This one folks, is a good one. Cronenberg knows how to make a movie and this one is no exception. A series of murders apparently committed by children, somehow intertwined with a popular psychotherapist’s radical technique called “psychoplasmics.”
A smartly written movie that really makes you think which is unusual in any genre. Good acting and a good story line combined with pretty good production means this isn’t a bad movie, but it is a “different” movie which is good enough for me to put it on the list. Available on Amazon and well worth it.
