CCU12: The Brood (1979) & Early David Cronenberg
Aaron, Mark and Brian Saur talk about David Croneberg’s recent Criterion Collection release of The Brood. We talk about the intense acting, the pseudo-science that goes into the film, and we delve into spoiler territory. Don’t worry — we give plenty of warning. We also talk about the early body horror of Cronenberg and how he integrated science and sexuality into his films, which would continue throughout his career.
