Undoubtedly [Cronenberg's] best from this period and also the most troubling.
The Brood is an el sleazo exploitation film, camouflaged by the presence of several well-known stars but guaranteed to nauseate you all the same.
Genuinely disturbing horror but with Cronenberg producing a slightly deeper edge in his portrait of a troubled family.
