A classic

8 years, 6 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. Eventually, this time again, I wasn't disappointed by the damned thing. Indeed, up to that point, David Cronenberg had been involved with some rather gruesome horror features for a limited audience and it was his second mainstream project, after 'The Dead Zone' which, for some reason, didn't really work... 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)

" - Rewatched The amazing thing with the THE FLY is that it takes an admittedly goofy concept, and treats it as a proper human drama with richly developed characters and an established emotional connection that feels earned and genuine. The gloriously crafted body horror is horrifying on its own, but the horror of THE FLY comes from the tragedy of the story itself. Watching a man slowly deteriorate to a monster, losing himself in the process, while his only human connection is completely unable t"

"The Fly (1986) Naucnik eksperimentusici ce slucajno stvoriti od sebe gnusno stvorenje dostojno gadjenja. Cronenberg igra na svoju najsigurniju kartu - postepeno veoma detaljno i realno prikazivanje transformacije covjeka u insekta. Kroz njegovu metamorfozu i kroz oci njegove djevojke suocicemo se sa istinskim paklom i posledicama poigravanja sa prirodnim zakonima. "

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"A beautifully poignant tale of love and heartbreak cocooned in the outré trappings of its maker’s distinctive splatter-punk aesthetic, The Fly represents the apotheosis of David Cronenberg’s early obsessions. The story of scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum), who, in a fit of drunken jealousy, tests his new teleporter only to find himself fused with a housefly, the film is a testament to the elastic properties of genre as metaphor. Cronenberg reappropriates the original’s schlocky damse"

October 2018 Horrorfest (42 movies items)

"Re-watch - Oct. 26th This was my second time watching The Fly, and I appreciated some aspects far more this time around. I was more invested in the characters than the last time I watched it, and the central relationship has moments that are genuinely heartbreaking. Of course Goldblum's performance is still the best thing about the film, and Geena Davis is great as usual. The effects still hold up, and the music is brilliant throughout. There's really nothing to complain about here, and yet for"
