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

" 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 20 Halloween Favorites: Spiders (20 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 te later one is 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 abundantl"

Horror Films Of The 1950's (28 movies items)

"Many younger horror fanatics may not know that the 1986 masterpiece, "The Fly" is a remake of this 1958 film. But the two are about as different as an original and a remake can be. While Cronenberg's vision was a body horror with a strong emotional undercurrent, this is much more of a classic sci-fi/horror B-movie. There's still a strong emotional element to the film, and this is it's greatest strength. Because otherwise, this is about as silly a horror film as you'll ever see. Thanks to clunky "

"Horror film with David Hedison as a scientist who creates a transporter but when he experiments with himself, he finds that a fly has got into the machine with him and now he is turning into the insect. One of the better horrors of the period that led to David Cronenberg's gorier remake, this takes its time to reveal the change. The ending is a real shocker."

"October 28 "No, Helene and Andre believed in the sacredness of life. They wouldn't harm anything... not even a fly." I've been meaning to watch this one for quite a while, but now that I have I gotta say that this is actually on par with the remake. It told a really chilling story, had some really interesting characters with Vincent Price's role being the best. (Surprising opinion, huh?) It does feel a little campy at times, but for the most part it's a really solid movie and I liked it just"
