The Brood

Director: David Cronenberg Run Time: 92 min. Format: DCP Rating: R Release Year: 1979

Starring: Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar, Art Hindle, Henry Beckman

Nola Carveth (Samantha Eggar) is finally getting help. After spending years trying to overcome a childhood of abuse, Nola begins seeing Dr. Hal Raglan (Oliver Reed) after her husband, Frank, threatens to take away custody of her daughter. Raglan practices an unconventional therapy method where mental disturbances are released through physical changes in the body. The therapy isn’t perfect, for starters, anyone who crosses Nola meets a grizzly end at the hands of a seemingly endless stream of angry, toothless, asexual murder-happy children. As the bodies begin piling up, Frank begins investigating the source of these kill-crazy kiddies and all signs point to trouble brewing between Nola and Dr. Raglan.
