69.0 The Brood - With Chloe Brett
On the podcast this week it's Cronenberg vs. Kramer vs. Kramer in the disturbing The Brood, brought to us by writer Chloe Brett. We discuss why we're grateful Cronenberg is a hoarder, what's the most difficult fake bodily fluid to work with, Samantha Eggar's Oliver Reed stories, and the invention of body horror. Cam also relates the fascinating resume of one of the snow suited actors and we discuss how censorship can imply way worse things are happening than what is actually being shown. You can find the Brood fairly easily as it's part of the Criterion collection, but it's also available on iTunes to rent or purchase.
This week's end credit music is The Shape of Rage, from the Brood Soundtrack, scored by Howard Shore. If you're interested in scoring films, Shore has an incredible resume, including scoring all of the Lord of the Rings films.
Chloë Brett is a Toronto based special effects makeup artist, video store lackey and Instagram harpy @eyesore_cinema, and film writer for Film Trap. You can read her forthcoming new series "The Most Important Movie in the World" at filmtrap.com.
This week's Shrimpton Suggested Short is the bleak but beautiful Children of the Dark, by Scott Brian Belyea.
