The Citizen - over 3 years
The Brood, one of David Cronenberg’s most chilling and disturbing works finally gets its long-awaited UK Blu-ray debut thanks to Second Sight Films and we have three copies to give away.

There is horror in this movie, though our standards for that genre have changed so much since 1977, when the film very briefly opened in Britain.

But there was an abject, lower-class demon loose in Britain in the mid 1970s, dubbed “the Black Panther” by the media, but once known as Donald Nappey, and then Donald Neilson. In Britain, a “nappy” is a diaper, and when Nappey’s daughter got the teasing at school that the father had suffered, he changed the family name to Neilson, which sounded safe. ...
