Remake bandwagon rumbles hideously onwards, crushes The Brood
- 4 October 2007
The latest horror movie to capture Hollywood’s increasingly unimaginative eye would appear to be David Cronenberg’s The Brood.
Not content with destroying Hallowe’en and thrusting a utterly pointless Friday the 13th rehash into our slack jawed faces, the good people of Burbank are going to ‘reimagine’ the 1979 shocker.
The Canadian body-horror maestro’s movie centres on a psychiatric hospital, one particular patient and a shower of odd children – oh and Oliver Reed, who presumably won’t be in the remake.
It seems a rather odd choice since The Brood isn’t even that good, what’s wrong with Shivers or Videodrome?
Of course they could have had a go at Scanners if there weren’t already a gajillion dreadful sequels sucking the very marrow from the psychic health of the world.
