Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A cinematic bad dream that generates recurring nightmares.
Rotten: The Brood is an el sleazo exploitation film, camouflaged by the presence of several well-known stars but guaranteed to nauseate you all the same.
THE BROOD Rules.
Though I caught this one later in life, it's a classic in my horror collection now. Truly creepy, completely original and though slow at times it's definitely scary. For the horror purest this film is gold. Often bizarre as Cronenberg's horror films are, THE BROOD is by far my favorite of his extensive career.
Horror Movie Expert
Having survived one of the most dull and boring trailers on the planet, I am glad I still gave The Brood a try. It was a very good movie, very realistic in period detail, and very mysterious in tone. I was eagerly on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would happen next. And for those of you who don't believe a movie is a horror movie without the sight of blood--it has got some of that.
I am a huge fan of Cronenberg and this is one of his best.
