I finally watched this movie a few days ago, I had always wanted to see it, it was so creepy. I actually liked it, for as disturbing and weird as it was. Oliver Reed, who plays the psychologist in it- he drank himself to death- literally- drank so much he gave himself a self induced heart attack.

I really enjoyed The Brood when I re-watched it on the Criterion Disk last year; incredible film, and one of Cronenberg's best. I feel his best films are the ones he directed in the '70's - '80's, i.e. The Brood, Shivers, Rabid, Videodrome, Scanners, The Fly, The Dead Zone, Dead Ringers, etc.

And, even when compared to the other films that Cronenberg made during this era, The Brood is especially frightening. The idea of a disturbed woman's psyche "birthing" these baby monsters/demons that attack anyone she hates is quite horrific. And, though the effects were minimal re: these creatures, they were still extremely effective.

The cold winter setting also added to the unease that was palatable throughout the film...
