Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A cinematic bad dream that generates recurring nightmares. – Michael Sragow, New Yorker, May 4, 2015

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. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

I am a huge fan of Cronenberg and this is one of his best.


But not as good as other movies, with the collection would've gotten Lost Highway instead...


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.
