A disturbed woman is receiving a radical form of psychotherapy at a remote, mysterious institute. Meanwhile, her five-year-old daughter, under the care of her estranged husband, is being terrorized by a group of demonic beings. How these two story lines connect is the shocking and grotesque secret of this bloody tale of monstrous parenthood from David Cronenberg (Scanners), starring Oliver Reed (Women in Love) and Samantha Eggar (The Collector). With its combination of psychological and body horror, The Brood laid the groundwork for many of the director’s films to come, but it stands on its own as a personal, singularly scary vision.

Thank You ...
They really know how to give a treatment to a classic movie (and not just to Horror Films Ladies & Gentlemen).
Samatha Eggar stars as his prime patient: someone who gives birth to "children of her rage" - little monster humanoids who vaguely resemble her daughter. When Eggar is mad at someone - her mother for beating her, for example - the demonic children go to exact revenge.
Like all of Cronenberg's films, it is gory and disturbing. Stephen King praises it in his Danse Macabre. It is a must-see for any true horror fan.
