DAVID CRONENBERG’S

THE BROOD

The Brood, one of David Cronenberg’s most chilling and disturbing works finally gets its long-awaited UK Blu-ray debut thanks to Second Sight Films.

This early masterpiece from the maestro of horror, stars Oliver Reed and Samantha Eggar and is still as shocking today as it was on its original release. It comes to DVD and Blu-ray packed with brand new bonus features on 8 July 2013.

Frank Carveth (Art Hindle – Invasion of the Body Snatchers) is becoming increasingly concerned about his ex-wife Nola’s (Eggar) secretive treatment at the sinister ‘Somafree Institute of Psychoplasmics’. Headed by cult figure Dr Raglan (Reed – The Devils), his controversial and extreme methods seek to unleash his patients rage, which take on physical manifestations. As Nola’s increasingly psychotic anger is vented during her sessions, brutal murders befall those at whom it’s directed. When Frank’s daughter is abducted he is led to Raglan’s Institute and a terrifying, repellent final confrontation, renowned as one of the most notorious scenes in horror cinema.
