Drive-In Dust Offs: The Brood (1979)

  • DailyDead
The Dead Zone (1983) is where director David Cronenberg turned from the horrors of the body to the torture of the soul. But before that, he made tentative steps towards adding a layer of vulnerability to his work, in the very personal and frightening The Brood (1979). It’s still rooted in the tactile, but listen closely and you can hear whispers of humanity piercing the skin.

Which is to take nothing away from his earlier works; Shivers (1975) and Rabid (1977) are both potent allegories (and gory allies) on class warfare and sexual promiscuity. But The Brood was written by Cronenberg while going through a divorce and nasty custody battle, and while it mostly maintains a safe distance from emotional investment for the viewer, the beginnings of a sympathetic point of view start to take shape.

Released by New World Pictures in May, on a budget of $1.4 million Can, The Brood made some

Cronenberg’s The Brood

David Cronenberg swaps his  venereal ick-monsters for Samantha Eggar's mater furiosa,  an annihilating female who commits her killings as would the villain of a Greek tragedy -- through her offspring. Oliver Reed is the new-age guru of 'Psychoplasmics,' who teaches Eggar to direct her rage in an utterly unique way. The disturbing concept sounds less preposterous when one finds out it was written in response to a brutal divorce experience. Hell hath no fury. The Brood Blu-ray The Criterion Collection 777 1979 / Color / 1:78 widescreen / 92 min. / available through The Criterion Collection / Street Date October 13, 2015 / 39.95 Starring Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar, Art Hindle, Henry Beckman, Nuala Fitzgerald, Cindy Hinds, Susan Hogan, Gary McKeehan, Michael Magee, Robert Silverman, Felix Silla.

New on Video: ‘The Brood’

  • SoundOnSight
The Brood

Written and directed by David Cronenberg

Canada, 1979

Inspired by his own unpleasant divorce, and the subsequent liberation of his daughter just before his ex-wife was able to take the girl to a California cult, David Cronenberg’s The Brood is essentially an ugly, highly unorthodox custody battle. As the great Canadian filmmaker famously quipped, “The Brood is my version of Kramer vs. Kramer [also released in 1979], but more realistic.”

The Brood is Cronenberg’s sixth feature, coming just after the seemingly out of place Fast Company (1979)—not so very odd given the director’s love for automobile racing—and just before his more exemplary breakthrough, Scanners (1981). It is consummate Cronenberg, with a heady mixture of clinically twisted science and the deep psychological strain that inevitably mars said science with corporeal disfigurement.

With his wife, Nola (Samantha Eggar), undergoing treatment at a facility known as the Somafree Institute of Psychoplasmics (a Cronenbergian

Review: David Cronenberg's "The Brood" (1979) Starring Oliver Reed And Samantha Eggar; Criterion Blu-ray Special Edition

  • CinemaRetro
“Mommie’S Dearest”

By Raymond Benson

David Cronenberg’s horror films always seem to tackle subjects that involve an unpredictable human body and the terror of your consciousness residing inside of it. He explored parasites in his first mainstream picture, Shivers (aka They Came From Within, 1975), and viral “stingers” than grow in a woman’s armpit in his second, Rabid, 1977. The rest of his movies, leading up to the ultimate statement of being trapped in a horrible body, The Fly (1986), all dealt with some aspect of physical or mental transformation. The Brood, released in 1979, fits right in with Cronenberg’s thematic fascination with flesh and blood. And it’s a corker.

Oliver Reed plays Dr. Raglan, an unorthodox psychotherapist who uses controversial techniques that cause his patients to manifest their inner turmoil and anger into visible, bizarre growths on their bodies. One guy sprouts spots. Another man grows a weird

Blu-ray Review: 'The Brood' (rerelease)

  • CineVue
★★★★☆ Joining the Canadian master's sci-fi classic Scanners (1981) on UK Blu-ray for the first time thanks to Second Sight, David Cronenberg's gestating chiller The Brood (1979) has certainly played its part in the re-evaluation of children (and the complicit female reproductive system) as potentially murderous monstrosities. One of the greatest body horrors ever made, The Brood has been overlooked by some commentators due to some dated effects and occasional comparisons to the more lucrative Alien (also released that same year), but has more than enough guile and gore to go toe-to-toe with Scott's game-changer.

The film begins with concerned father Frank Carveth (Art Hindle) picking up daughter Candice (Cindy Hinds) from the shady Somafree Institute of Psychoplasmics, a secure clinic where ex-wife Nola's (Sam Eggar) is currently undergoing a course of experimental treatment for her uncontrollable bouts of rage. Run by the shamanistic Dr. Raglan (Oliver Reed), Raglan's divisive and extremely

Blu-ray Review - The Brood (1979)

The Brood, 1979.

Directed by David Cronenberg.

Starring Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar, Art Hindle and Henry Beckman.

Synopsis:

A man tries to uncover an unconventional psychologist's therapy techniques on his institutionalized wife, while a series of brutal attacks committed by a brood of mutant children coincides with the husband's investigation.

Jonathan Romney wrote in 2007 how David Cronenberg's "stories evoke worlds that are manifestly unlike ours". From the crazed-creation of The Fly through to the close-up gore within A History of Violence, these are worlds that very few are privy to. The Brood is set within an alien-world in many respects, as snow-suited creatures plucked from the Venetian streets of Nicholas Roeg's Don't Look Now are now multiplied and in Toronto, Canada. Within this surreal context, The Brood highlights truths that we shy away from and forces us to see our fears through the hyper-real lens of a horror filmmaker.

July 8th, 2013. That's the date David Cronenberg's The Brood will be hitting Blu-ray in the UK via Second Sight Films. May 10th, 2013. That's the date we start bitching here in the States that we don't have it on Blu-ray. Sigh.

His controversial and extreme methods seek to unleash his patients' rage, which take on physical manifestations. As Nola’s increasingly psychotic anger is vented during her sessions, brutal murders befall those at whom it’s directed.

Deadline (1981): Movie Review

  • MoreHorror
Review by Chris Wright

A horror writer with a "Deadline" who has lapsed reality with his writing fantasy couldn't possibly go wrong can it? Why yes it can!

In 1981 a strange Canadian horror movie came out called "Deadline". Paragon released this psychological terror that is filled with strange imagery and at times truly depressing. It has only been given the Paragon VHS release that is fairly difficult to find today. Paragon had a tendency to release unknown movies back in its heyday. They did release things uncut and had many trailers on their releases. It does deserve a re-release as it was made in 2:35:1 so a new release in its original aspect ratio would give the movie justice.

The world of Steven Lessey (Stephen Young) , horror writer and movie maker, isn't looking so great. His movies are not well received by recent critics who excoriated him at a discussion panel.
