4.0 out of 5 stars Visceral horror, 5 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Brood [1979] [DVD] (DVD)
Even in the era of "The Walking Dead" special effects and horror,
"The Brood" is a very disturbing, and, at certain segments, a very
unpleasant viewing experience. This is because David Cronenberg-as usually-
deals not with horror external to human existence, but with what comes forth
from the dark recesses of the human psyche, as we meld with, and are changed
by modern Science and Technology.
Samantha Eggar gives a powerful, nightmarish performance of a deeply disturbed
motherhood.
The product includes two versions of the film:
The uncut UK version is presented in a very clean and sharp transfer,
and is subtitled with English SDH.
The censored US version is in VHS image quality, and it has no subtitles.
In the DVD extras there's a very informative retrospective of all films
of David Cronenberg, up to "Spider" (2002). Unfortunately, this has no
English SDH.
