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

Tienes un tema principal expuesto a través de alguna alteración genética/física, pura asquerosidad y desagrado visual por este cambio progresivo y un final verdaderamente horrible por lo triste que es.

Resulta que es una de las mejores tragedias que he visto en cine .

Aquí Cronenberg no se hace el raro que no puede entender nadie, va al grano sin dejarse sus escenas grotescas que de” read more
