Kidding Around

Buy The Brood on DVD.

In this early exploration of body manipulations by David Cronenberg, murderous, unearthly children appear to be the work an evil psychologist (Oliver Reed). One of the great filmmaker's best films, and a stylistic -- if not budgetary -- breakthrough. MGM/UA's DVD comes only with a trailer, but the price certainly won't break the bank.
