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 British distributors Second Sight Films.

The release uses a high-definition transfer which appears to have been struck from the same source Australian distributors Umbrella Entertainment had access to when they prepared their Blu-ray release of The Brood. Brightness levels are slightly elevated, but the difference is often quite difficult to spot. However, compression is marginally better on the Australian release. The difference is easy to see in a few sequences where light is restricted - some mild compression artifacts mixed with light noise occasionally pop up, though they never become overly distracting (compare screencapture #18 with screencapture #14 from our review of the Australian release). Detail and clarity are essentially identical. As it was the case with the Australian release, there are no traces of problematic degraining or sharpening corrections. Also, there are no serious stability issues. All in all, even though there is room for improvement, this is certainly a good presentation of The Brood that should please fans of the film who have previously seen it only on DVD. (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 release: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Second Sight Films have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track serves the film very well. There are a number of sequences where Howard Shore's score has a prominent role that sound very good. Admittedly, viewers used to aggressive lossless tracks that typically come on releases of modern blockbusters will not be impressed with the dynamic intensity, but those who understand that the film has a sound design with natural limitations will be pleased with the lossless treatment.
