A classic

2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 23 9:11
I had already seen this one but it was really ages ago so I thought it was time for a re-watch. Anyway, this time again, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, up to that point, David Cronenberg had been involved with some rather gruesome horror features for a limited audience and it was his first mainstream project, if I recall correctly. The most startling aspect with this movie, in my opinion, is that ... read more

To start off with, The Fly is 4-in-1; Horror, sci-fi, tragic-romance and a film with a message. Let's start with the first shall we?

Horror: To the modern audience he is known for crime-thrillers but to fans he is best known for the 80's body-horrors which had originally propelled him to stardom. The Fly is his best effort to date. Chris Walas's ground-breaking imagining of what would... read more

Description: David Cronenberg's remake of the 1958 classic transcends its genre to become a moving portrait of a man and his lover attempting to come to terms with his physical disintegration. "The Fly" stars Jeff Goldblum as a spaced-out scientist who invents a genetic teleportation machine and accidentally transforms himself into a fly ... (more)

""There was an old lady who swallowed a fly, perhaps she'll die."/> While I adore the 1958 original, David Cronenberg's Version of the Fly is one of those rare remakes that really surpasses the original. Cronenberg takes the story of man and fly and turns it into something far more visceral and disturbing. It's a parallel to the aids crisis that was happening during the time, a horror about our own bodies completely turning against us. Also of note is that the film essentially only has three ma"

"Favorite Remake Now, you want to talk about a great remake? This is it, baby! I love Vincent Price and the original was good; in fact, it was one of the better admissions to the 50's sci-fi/horror genre. Yet it's certainly not what I would call unapproachable with regards to a remake. Cronenberg's revamp is brilliant and Jeff Goldblum is perfect in this role. "
