Synopsis

A dark design from the mind of David Cronenberg (Scanners, The Fly, Eastern Promises), internationally acclaimed exponent of psychological horror, The Brood is a chillingly twisted masterpiece of visceral intensity, considered by many as one of the scariest and terrifying films of all time.
 
Dr. Hal Raglan (Oliver Reed, Gladiator) experiments with "Psychoplasmics", a radical therapy designed to release pent-up emotions in his patients.  He keeps his best and brightest patient, ex-wife Nola (Samantha Eggar,Doctor Dolittle), in isolation. But as she successfully vents her rage and expels her demons during the sessions a series of brutal murders occur outside the institute.
 
What is the connection between Raglan's methods and these monstrous killings?  The answer will unleash a whole new breed of terror!
 
Presented totally uncut for the first time, this shocking thriller, considered one of Cronenberg's most compelling and unsettling works, explores the inner-monster and how misdirected rage can literally take on a life of its own.
