the Brood (David Cronenberg, 1979)

CA, 92 min

middle-period Cronenberg. this is generally hailed as a classic, but i’m not sure i see what all the fuss is about. true, it has great atmosphere, and crazy bitches are always fun, but the kid’s a fucking zombie, and i prayed for her death. meh. should i not have watched it drunk? reel‘s shitty one-line synopsis:

A woman seeks treatment at an experimental psychiatric clinic, where she learns how to transform her rage into the form of mutated children.
