A classic

4 years, 5 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)

Movie Reviews (1151-1200) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: David Cronenberg tackles an old science fiction horror movie removes what was camp and fun with it and give it a disturbing analysis of what will happen with a body crossed with a fly - degenerated mind and losing body parts. It gives us a lot of disgusting make-up and gore, Jeff Goldblum in one of his best roles. The Downs: A very depressing fate for this love triangle and the ending feels a tiny bit too abrupt. "

"13.09.2015 Limaa... Edelleen tajuttoman kova leffa Cronenbergilta. Kädenvääntökohtaus oli penskana minulle liikaa... Efektit tässä ovat kestäneet todella hyvin aikaa, Goldblum on maaginen roolissaan ja lopussa melkein liikutuin."
