David Cronenberg’s The Brood (1979)

The Brood entertains the notion that psychotherapy can be dangerous. It doesn’t merely result in a changing of one’s mind, it can also result in a changing of one’s body—disturbingly so. And woe be the therapist who messes around with this power. This playing on a fear of psychology is the territory of David Cronenberg. On this episode of the Diabolique Webcast, writer/producer/director J. P. Ouillette joins David Kleiler and me to discuss The Brood, which will soon be released on Blu-ray by the Criterion Collection.
