The Brood


Dir. David Cronenberg. 1979, 92 mins. New 35mm print! With Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar, Art Hindle. David Cronenberg made The Brood after a painful divorce, and described the film as a “fantastical Kramer vs. Kramer.” The mother is involved in “psychoplasmics,” a treatment that leads to her literally (and graphically) giving birth to her rage. Howard Shore’s musical score pays homage to Bernard Herrmann’s music for Psycho.
