A classic

5 years, 3 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. In the horrifyingly graphic detail that is his trademark, Cronenberg depicts the scientist's painful mutation from human into insect. What gives the film its tragic dimension is the emotional depth of the relationship between the scientist and his journalist girlfriend (Geena Davis) as she witness ... (more)

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2016) (268 movies items)

" Notes: 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 it seamlessly combines 3 different genres: horror, science-fiction and romance. And it does it surprisingly well. Obviously, it still retained its B vibe that you can find in Cronenberg's previous work which was definitely an asset but it was "

2016 Horror Movie Marathon (33 movies items)

"Watched October 4th Tonight I went with a movie I like but had not seen in a while; the 1986 version of 'The Fly'. It has been a few years since I last saw it, so the itch to revisit it was strong. Actually, I had intended to watch it during last year's marathon, I bought it on DVD, but I ran out of time. I made a point to include it this year, and so I've watched it early on in the marathon to make sure it doesn't miss out this time around! Let me just say, I admit I have not yet seen the 195"

"28.5. Tuli kavereiden kanssa puheeksi Cronenberg, ja totesimme siinä yhden toisen frendin kanssa ettemme olleet nähneet mieheltä vielä mitään. Yksi frendi sitten otti hyllystä esiin The Flyn ja päätettiin ruveta katselemaan."
