A good movie

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I always had a weak spot for David Cronenberg's work, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it turned out to be one of these cheap Canadian horror movies he made at the beginning of his career but even though I didn't care much for the other ones he made ('Rabid', 'Shivers'), this one however still managed to grab me somehow.

"Cronenbergin ahdistavassa sekopläjäyksessä pesue epämuodostuneita lapsia lahtaa porukkaa. Cronenberg ei tyytynyt tekemään keskinkertaisia elokuvia, hän tahtoi jättää elokuvillaan arpia. Myös tässä elokuvassa on jotain piinaavaa ja häiritsevää, joka vielä rainan loputtuakin seuraa katsojaansa kuin varjo. "

RS: 50 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1970s (51 movies items)

"David Cronenberg turns existential dread into violent, tangible fear in this 1979 sci-fi-inflected thriller about an unorthodox psychologist who is able to manifest patients’ inner anger into physical beings. Horror fans will nerd out at the amorphous psycho-blobs that terrorize and kill the patient’s source of agony; everyone else will be incredibly disturbed by what the film has to say about parenthood, repressed emotions and good old-fashioned rage. Cronenberg would up the splatter quotie"

Slant's 100 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time (100 movies items)

"At the center of The Brood is the power struggle between Nola (a fearlessly feline Samantha Eggar) and Frank (Art Hindle), and the effects of their severance upon their shell-shocked little girl, Candy (Cindy Hinds). Set in deepest Canadian winter, juxtaposing harsh brutalist exteriors against scarcely less inviting cinder-block and wood-panel interiors, the film gives off the impression—as most David Cronenberg films do—of a neat, clinically surgical procedure, that despite the mealy horror"

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"A film that externalizes all its subtexts like nervous welts in order to mock the burgeoning self-help and divorce crazes that had parents everywhere willfully unable to look beyond their own navels, David Cronenberg’s dark comedy The Brood is as perverse as it is incisive. The message that, no matter what parents try to do to internalize their own therapies and protect their loved ones from the messes they’re inside, there’s no possibility for a clean separation from the beds they make co"

A good movie

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I always had a weak spot for David Cronenberg's work, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it turned out to be one of these cheap Canadian horror movies he made at the beginning of his career but even though I didn't care much for the other ones he made ('Rabid', 'Shivers'), this one however still managed to grab me somehow. I mean, to be honest, the acting was not really strong, nothing much happened through most of the duration and not everything that did happen made much sense but, even so, the damned thing was just weird and creepy enough to keep me intrigued until the very end. Eventually, the ending was pretty much the only really remarklable thing in this movie with the usual Cronenberg's body horror trademark and it” read more
