The Brood (1979)

Director: David Cronenberg. Cast: Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar, Art Hindle. 92 min. Rated R. Canada. Horror/Sci-fi.

Another one of those corny 70s gooey horror-thrillers by Cronenberg, about another bizarre fictitious medical-mental disorder, this time called "psychoplasm", a disease where a female bears deformed children and controls their minds remotely to commit gruesome murders. Yuck. But that doesn't mean I was bored or anything - especially during a climactic cross-cut sequence at the end, which is still thrilling/scary after more than 30 years. Further research shows this movie has achieved cult status.
