  1. João R's rating of the film The Brood

    It was absurdly distinguished and created interesting pallets, standing out as a competent directing exercise. Plus, the womb scene is singular. Unfortunately, the writing doesn't feel honest; it feels merely as a method to cope, one that isn't moving. Probably, since it features a predominantly enraged tone, which creates a giant block.

  2. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Brood

    Fantastic body horror film from Cronenberg's early days. Genuine madness, complimented by a larger than life performance from Oliver Reed. Overlooked.

  4. Adam GR's rating of the film The Brood

    I love the opening and dialogue of the role plays. An interesting illustration of insidious therapy. Oliver Reed and Samantha Eggar fit these roles perfectly. It's hard to forget that image when she finally opens the kimono.

  5. Terry_Moby's rating of the film The Brood

    3.5 In addition to his weird body politics, Cronenberg´s films in the 70s show a keen interest in ugly modern architecture and detached, somewhat wooden acting. It´s deliberate, I think, and it adds to the uncanny feeling of his films of that period.

  6. natalieb's rating of the film The Brood

    Oliver Reed is great in it, not so much the lead actor, who takes several scenes out of tempo :S and the little girl!!! Candy (Cindy Hinds), gives an impressivly dark performance for her age.

  7. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film The Brood

    The third star is for all that fetus licking.

  8. EdieEmm's rating of the film The Brood

    I don't know how intentionally Cronenberg cultivated The Brood's super-awkward mix of deeply awful things like generational trauma/abuse with an almost slapstick hilarity... But the film ends up being WAY more disturbing for the feeling of manic derangement it brings to the (already legit disturbing) story than for the story itself. Uncomfortably funny/not funny. Prescient/sad insights on epigenetic heritability. 4.5

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film The Brood

    Film débutant comme un coup de poing théâtral pour ne plus perdre de son intérêt ni de son suspense durant l'ensemble des quatre-vingt dix minutes de sa projection... www.cinefiches.com

  10. VincentVendetta's rating of the film The Brood

    When trying to do what's best for your child ends up in familicide and the transmission of the parents' demons. The most tragic of Cronenberg's films.

  11. James Mackin's rating of the film The Brood

    So many children got traumatized. God bless David Cronenberg.

  12. Gonzelush Thompson's rating of the film The Brood

  13. Steve G.'s rating of the film The Brood

    What would you have with a psychoplasmically-induced external womb? French fries?

  16. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film The Brood

    The scariest film I have ever seen.

  17. aliasgenius's rating of the film The Brood

    This gets pret-tay, pret-tay, pret-tay dark. 4/5

  18. Kevin's rating of the film The Brood

    Cronenberg is fearless. A visually graphic tale of a woman's psyche after untreated childhood abuse and the manifestations of her rage as an adult. Brilliant that she "mothers" her rage, as it is more a part of her than her own child. Also, Shore's score is very Hermann-esque, which I dug.

  21. Cihan Ünsal's rating of the film The Brood

  22. Ethan's rating of the film The Brood

    David Cronenberg was the master of showing us the horror within ourselves and the limits that we will go to contain it and keep it secret.

  23. JMKE's rating of the film The Brood
