A horror movie where Vincent Price doesn't play a bad guy! I won't bother telling you about the story because if you haven't heard how it goes then crawl out from under that rock and see this movie. I like this movie a lot but the plot is somewhat flawed. 1) I don't think squishing a head and an arm would get rid of the evidence. 2) Helene is yelling at a nurse to leave a fly alone when she is loo... read more

A slick 1950s sci-fi

I haven't yet seen the David Croenberg remake, though I have heard it is superior, but this was still very good and certainly worth seeing. Even with some inconsistencies in the story and one or two cheesy moments, The Fly is a slick 1950s sci-fi. Unlike some people I actually found the "help me help me" bit quite creepy, maybe predictable for those who have seen it umpteen times, but the image of... read more

Terror Blurbs! Part II (An Ever-Expanding List) (100 movies items)

"Plot: The mystery of a woman who seemingly killed her husband slowly reveals itself to be much more horrific than anyone anticipated. An undeniable classic of he atomic age era of sci-fi/horror pictures, The Fly comes packed with a rock solid cast, a surprisingly strong female lead (especially for the times), and several memorable moments that hold up well. The movie shows an admirable restraint which certainly helps soften the blow of the more hokey elements to a modern viewer. Part mystery, "

A slick 1950s sci-fi

“I haven't yet seen the David Croenberg remake, though I have heard it is superior, but this was still very good and certainly worth seeing. Even with some inconsistencies in the story and one or two cheesy moments, The Fly is a slick 1950s sci-fi. Unlike some people I actually found the "help me help me" bit quite creepy, maybe predictable for those who have seen it umpteen times, but the image of a half-human/fly being trapped in a cobweb and screaming those words quite unsettled me, and after seeing the film it is that scene that I remember most.The production values are very good and look very nice still, and the music is suitably chilling. The script has some nice touches too, and the acting is fine. David Hedison does a very good job as eccentric scientist Andre Delambre, and Vincent ” read more

My Top 199 Favorite Sci-Fi Movies... Of Like, Ever (199 movies items)

" After a common house fly buzzes it way into an experimental transportation device, it's DNA mixes in with the creator of said device, and in typical 50's b-movie fashion, results in a macabre hybrid of the two. And it will take more that a can of raid or a fly-swatter to keep females from screaming at the top of their lungs at the sight of him. Lord knows what their frightened reactions would be if the results of the skewed experiment had caused him to evolve into a "spider-man" instead. Or ev"

" 20.2. SATURN - HÄNEN VALINTANSA Teemana olleen lehden ilmestymisen aikoihin tehty scifi-kauhun varhaisempi filmatisointi kertoo Cronenbergin myöhemmin tutuksi tekemän tarinan kärpäsen pilaamasta kokeesta, jonka seurauksena tiedemiehen pärstä muuttuu vähemmän varteenotettavan jäpikän naamatauluksi. Leffan alussa tutkijan vaimo pistää siipan hydraulisen puristimen läpi ja siinä on sitten poliisilla ja tiedemiehen veljeä esittävällä Vincent Pricella ihmettelemistä. Onneksi Pr"

My Top 25 Halloween Favorites: Spiders (25 movies items)

"Now obviously, we all realize that no one can pull off be a movie called The Fly without featuring a spider somewhere along the way. Although, now that I think about, I guess that that's exactly what the 1986 Jeff Goldblum version tried to do. Which is why this 1958 b-movie classic has the prestige of being on this list while the later one does not. Because with it's ending of a half human, gnat-sized and helplessly web-entangled "spider-man" squeakily crying out "Help me, help me!" as a abunda"
