The Brood

Cronenberg’s most fully realised ‘70s film, a cathartic, deeply harrowing mind/body horror analogy for a messy divorce. Everything about it seethes with barely contained rage, from the screeching dissonance of Howard Shore’s score to Oliver Reed’s intense psycho-plasmic therapy sessions to the ghastly sights of deformed children smashing people’s heads in with mallets and crystal balls.

A horror entry which casts children in the role of malevolent little monsters... an extremely well made, if essentially unpleasant, shocker.

A strong theme, unfortunately undercut by faulty pacing and odd lapses in the tension.
