Sometimes it's hip to be square
9 May 2011 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

Along with the much superior Bucket of Blood, this is another example of late 50's beatsploitation. Despite its horror title, The Bloody Brood is a crime-drama set in a Beatnik cellar bar. Similar to Alfred Hitchcock's Rope, this movie has two bored intellectuals deciding that they would like to kill someone just for kicks. This they duly do by feeding a message boy a hamburger laced with broken glass. Yech!

Sadly, there is not a lot in The Bloody Brood to recommend. Peter Falk is good in a very early role, while the Beatnik vibe is mostly quite amusing. Other than these two factors though, this isn't very good at all. While it's mercifully short, nothing much of interest actually happens. It isn't really directed with much impetus and the whole plot line about the brother seeking vengeance for his brother's death is pretty tedious. Not too hip nowadays daddy-oh.
