A classic

3 years 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)

"This movie is both scary, gruesome and a tear-jerker - I felt really sorry for Seth Brundle in this movie especially when he started falling apart during his slow and gradual change into the entity known as Brundlefly."

My Top 20 Favorite Horror Movies (20 movies items)

" "Be afraid. Be very afraid." This movie is he ultimate proof that CG effects can never be as good as practical effects in horror movies. You could never do what this movie does with CG without having it seem laughable and fake. But the practical effects used here are some of the creepiest effects i have ever seen. Few times has a movie actually made me ill while watching it, but the transformations Jeff Goldblum goes through here is definitely not for anyone with a weak stomach."

""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"
