The Brood ★★★★★

David Cronenberg turning his own ugly feelings about his messy divorce into a disturbing dive into psychological scars of family. Art Hindle’s blank face is the perfect foil to such dissection and the film has some of the most effective horrifying images put on film particularly when they are the most simple (as a 15 year old those little deformed hands coming from under the bed really did a number on me). Even the pure little girl sight is disturbing. And then there is the moment in which the ex-husband arrives in the school to murdered body of the teacher and all those little children crying. When it comes to psychological damage, The Brood has something for everyone.
