The Brood (1979)

An in depth discussion about the themes of motherhood, pregnancy, divorce and the monstrous feminine in David Cronenberg's The Brood (1979).

We're joined by Watershed's Cinema Producer and film critic Tara Judah for a discussion on David Cronenberg's body horror classic The Brood (1979). We talk about taboos around motherhood, birth, divorce, how the film was perceived on release and how it's aged, Oliver Reed, and so much more.
