    Is anyone else bothered by the fact that the clone murderers look rather like Adelina Poerio, the red hooded dwarf in Don’t Look Now?

    I enjoyed the film but did it strike anyone else as bizzarre that they filmed the attack on the teacher in friont of a lot of small children ?

    Even if they took a lot of time to explain that they were only playing it was quite brutal to see the woman being bashed over the head continuously.. Also after her death there is a scene where childrn stand around and she is covered in blood.

    Can anybody else remember a trailer for this film that featured night vision cameras filming the audience? I was just saying to my friend it was one of the first examples of this kind of trailer I ever saw and I was wondering does anybody have a link to the trailer, I tried Youtube and now I’m all out of ideas.

    one problem with this movie is I think it was a little to vague as to how Psychoplasmics actually worked

    I mean was it some sort of genetic serum Raglan injected into his patients or what? the movie almost seemed to imply that Nola was the source of whatever caused Psychoplasmics (due to her mother saying that she would get mysterious warts on her body as a child and you see Candice with the same warts at the end, thus implying that she inherited the trait)

    that seems like it might be the correct explanation since the whole idea seems a wee bit advanced for 70’s technology

    back in 98 I did a titty comedy for Skinemax. Sex Camp, ya remember it?

    What was the deal with the boils on Jan Hartogs throat? Was it implied that he also had the brood? Or that dr Raglan did some psychoplasmic experiments on him, but didn’t get the results he was looking for? The results he finally got with Nola?

    Someone clear this up please.

    I like Cronenberg’s style and i like this film. But i just can’t understand something : At final scene, Nola gets angry at Frank and blames him. After that, the creatures attack to Dr. Raglan! But the one they attack would be FRANK,wouldnt? ! ( they attack to the people who Nola is angry at and Nola is angry at Frank at that moment! ) So why are they attacking to Raglan? It’s a mistake about the film i think.

    After looking at the creatures closely, I noticed that they has some form of intelligence.

    After the attack, the thing knew to hide in the house while the authorities looked around after the first murder.

    At the school house atttack they seemed intelligent enough to sneak out their hostage and then kill the teacher.

    Latly in the final attack on Raglan. They seemed to attack as a team.

    This board seems to be a good place to locate half-remembered horror movies, so here’s my memory fragment:

    Somewhen in the late 80s/early 90s I saw a scene in a movie (or maybe a TV show)on UK television; (I think) a man was in a bedroom, on a bed, possibly a four-poster bed, and somehow bars appeared from the sides of the bed turning it into a big cage.

    That’s all I know, and even that might be mis-remembered. Scared the crap out of me as a kid. If anyone can name the film or show that would be amazing.

    Thanks!

    When Dad goes to fetch Candy at the police station, why does he turn off the television?? There were a bunch of people sitting in there, and he decides to switch it off. That bugs me SO MUCH! Does this only bother me? Am I weird???

    I had to rewind it a few times it disturbed me so much. I know, I know, that’s the last thing that I should find disturbing in this movie… but come on! It was on for EVERYBODY, not just Candy. The NERVE of that man!

    Man, I recall years ago in the early 80’s when this movie popped up as a double feature with Rabid at the local Drive-In. I still remember the newspaper advertisement! The Brood is a stone classic..One quick question.. I own the Anchor Bay Region 2 DVD issue which actually contains 2 Discs. One Disc is the US version and the other disc is the UK version..Anyone know what the differences are?

    I don’t care what anybody says it just gets better every time I watch it. I’ve seen it at least 8 times since it came out and I’m still picking up new things in it. It’s just such an amazing movie in so many ways. The script is incredibly complex, the imagery is top notch, the films mood is dramatic, realistic and scary, and Samantha Egger gives a horrifying performance. I love everything about The Brood.

    I saw The Brood again last night and it is still scary to watch. I think the classroom scene is the scariest…the way there is no music at all and these two hooded children walk towards the little girl…scary! And then add the scene where one of them comes out from under the bed to that music!

    Proper horror scenes!

    I liked this movie but it has one serious flaw- the character/acting of the husband (Frank Carveth/Art Hindle). His reactions were often awkward and strange and he was never convincing as a human being under these circumstances. Perhaps the best example was the scene when he is informed of his mother-in-law’s death. Didn’t seem remotely surprised or concerned about the death, his ‘concern’ for his daughter seemed very forced. Usually (especially in horror movies) I am willing and able to ignore bad acting but this time it took me completely out of the movie. Otherwise I think this could have become a much bigger success.

    I thought The Brood was a good movie. Extremely original concept, about physical manifestations of rage. My question is whether or not Nola could be considered responsible for any of the deaths caused by the mutant children? She never actually killed anybody and there was no other way for her to rid herself of her psychotic rage. I thought it was sort of inevitable, the way a 13 year-old boy will get an erection when he gets aroused. Nothing can be done about it.

    I would really like to hear others’ opinions on this. She never actually killed anybody, so what else could she have done with her anger that wasn’t already being done? I know it’s just a movie, but would her "guilt" hold up in a court of law? If so, how would one go about proving her culpability? I don’t think she is reponsible.

    I thought it was interesting that I haven’t seen anybody bring this up, so I will: Nola says she was beaten by her mother and her father just watched and didn’t do anything about it. Her mother says that Nola had these horrible bruises on her back that appeared out of nowhere and that she had to be hospitalized (when she shows Candy the picture. The actress who plays Candy, playing Nola as a child in the photo!).

    I was always under the assumption that Nola really was beaten by her mother but does anybody else think maybe Nola wasn’t beaten but got the bruises from something else and then just convinced herself that her mother did it because she hated her mom or was crazy.

    Do you see Nola as insane?

    Cheers.

    What kind of relationship did dr Raglan share with his male assistant? I know he had a crush on Nola and wanted to keep her captive for this reason but he also seemed to be very confident with the man, especially when he asked him to be available for the night. Was the doctor a free spirit after all?

    I came here on imdb last night and started looking up all my favorite horror movies from the mid 70’s to the mid 90’s, and approx. half have either been remade already, or are currently in production. This is getting out of hand. As fans, it probably doesn’t really seem like there is much we can do, but I for one am going to boycott remakes from now on. I know as jut one person, I can’t really make a difference, but hopefully out there there are some people who feel the same way I do, and will join me. I wish there was something else we could do to try and put a stop to them, but there just isnt anything, because the number of pre-teen kids who go to every remake thinking they are an original will always out number us. Its honestly makes me sad to see all these remakes coming out of movies which were so perfect when they first came, and no one today knows they exist, only to go watch a remake that will inevitablydestroy the original.

    I am boycotting remakes from now on, who is with me?

    I’m trying to find the title to a movie I saw when I was little that scared the crap out of me. I’m sure it’s not this title, but I thought there might be some horror movie gurus out there that might know. The only scene I remember was at the end of the film, a woman is locked inside a room with a scary looking person in a bed. I want to say the person in the bed was rotting, or blue and slimy? She has some kind of relationship with the thing in the bed. She screams (I think maybe she’s getting what she deserves?) I know that’s not much to go on, but that’s all I’ve got. Any films come to mind?

    Hey. So, I adore films that just make me squirm or really leave me with a sense of disturbance. You know, those awesome flicks that just mess you up in the head. I’m trying not to double up, although several directors on this list have more than one messed up film. What’s your top ten? If you have more than 10 favorites, put those down too, I definitely have more than ten. I felt compelled to make out a list. In no particular order:

    The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover

    Taxi Driver

    Happiness

    The Brood

    A Clockwork Orange

    Nil By Mouth

    Salo

    Eraserhead

    Ichi the Killer

    Night of the Living Dead(Original 1968 version! try and tell me that scene where the little girl kills her mother with the garden spade isn’t freaky!)

    Pink Flamingoes

    The Piano Teacher

    Blue Velvet

    Henry: Portrait of A Serial Killer

    Julien Donkey Boy

    Battle Royale

    The Wicker Man

    Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS

    The War Zone

    Begotten

    American History X

    Kids

    Irreversible

    Night and Fog

    Sick

    I could go on, but let me know. And by the way, I know NOLD is an old Romero flick, but try and tell me that scene where the little girl kills her mother with the garden spade isn’t freaky! Good luck.

    Hope to hear from you soon and hear about all these crazy sicko movies I’ve been missing!

    i seen this move way back in the mid 80s, im sure it was about a boil on some ones back, which gradually turned into a person and detatched its self from the host, killed then re-attatched its self, so whats the movie im thinking of?

    Of course, she produced those sickos, but that couldn’t be the reason for putting her on therapy. I believe it’s not said in the movie what kind of problems did she have.

    Following the success of the other "read this" thread, I’m hoping the horror experts out there can help identify this early-to-mid-90’s horror/sci-fi film that’s eluded me for years:

    While my parents were watching some film one night (had to have been in the early-to-mid 90’s, i’m thinking anywhere from ’93-’97), I recall seeing two trailers for pretty obscure horror films – the first, which is my primary interest, involving a father attempting to save his son from a strange alternate-reality that involved monsters of some kind. For some reason, there was a baseball field in the trailer (I’m sorry I can’t provide any more information as to the plot). The second trailer was for an alien film that I think took place on a spaceship (so futuristic… lots of white settings), which was also intriguing.

    What really made me remember the first trailer was it’s X rating – I had never seen such a rating for a non-pornographic film (nor have I since). Attempting to search for such X-rated horror films on here only produces adult films or "X-equivalent" ratings, which just reference European and Asian ratings of "banned"… which include pretty much every R-rated film. Angel Heart was the only horror film I found that at least initially had an X-rating.

    Any information that could be provided is appreciated.
