The Brood

 (1979)

The Brood Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A man's wife is under the care of an eccentric and unconventional psychologist who uses innovative and theatrical techniques to breach the psychological blocks in his patients. When their daughter comes back from a visit with her mother and is covered with bruises and welts, the father attempts to bar his wife from seeing the daughter but faces resistance from the secretive psychologist. Meanwhile, the wife's mother and father are attacked by strangely deformed children, and the man begins to suspect a connection with the psychologist's methods....

The Brood Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, David Cronenberg's The Brood arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Australian distributors Umbrella Entertainment.

Excluding some extremely light compression artifacts that are extremely difficult to spot during normal playback (see screencapture #12), the high-definition transfer is indeed quite wonderful. Most close-ups boast very pleasing depth (see screencapture #3) while the panoramic shots impress with excellent fluidity (see screencapture #9). More importantly, however, there are no traces of excessive degraining corrections. Edge-enhancement is also not a serious issue of concern. Color reproduction is convincing - there is a good range of rich but natural blues, greens, brown, grays, and blacks. Banding and aliasing do not plague the high-definition transfer. Also, there is no shimmer around the edges. Large debris, cuts, damage marks, or warps are also nowhere to be seen. Viewed on a large screen, the image also never breaks down. All in all, I think that this release is as satisfying as Criterion's release of the Canadian director's equally atmospheric film Videodrome. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Brood Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Umbrella Entertainment have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track is very good. Dynamic movement is modest, but the sound is very crisp and completely free of background hiss. Howard Shore's score is very intense and effectively enhances a number of the film's key sequences. The strings, in particular, always shine in the right places. The dialog is crisp, stable, and always easy to follow.
