The Brood

The Brood ★★★★

Hooptober Part VIII Film #11

Not going to view kids in snowsuits the same way after this. I know it’s Cronenberg so I should expect the body horror, but damn there’s some nasty shit in the 2nd half that had me wincing. Oliver Reed is great, been a huge fan ever since The Devils, and it’s awesome seeing him in this warped doctor role. Some scenes really made me wonder how Cronenberg got any of his films green lit in the first place. No idea, but I’m very thankful he’s been able to fly his slimy freak flag.
