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.

I have been really impressed by the quality of guests that you and Mark have had on the podcast. It is obvious that you did some really good groundwork to make the podcast successful. Each guest has added so much to each episode.
Can’t wait for the Mulholland cast!
Hadn’t come across your podcast before, I think I’ll make it regular. I am always on the look-out for new Cri-blu releases and this is one I must get. I’ve only seen it once and that was yeeears ago!
Cool. We recommend this one. Thanks for listening. We are about to record on Mulholland Drive, which is kind of a big deal to a lot of people.
Understandably! I haven’t seen that one in a good while, I might pick up the cri-blu whenever its out
Good news. It came out this week and it’s a beauty.
ooo nice I’ll have to try an find an Aussie distributor for it
