The Fly - The Fly review by VG

Spoiler Alert

An equal parts shocking, grotesque, touching and tragic love story of ambition, passion, hubris and horrific bodily betrayal.

Still potent after all these years - The Fly review by AER

Spoiler Alert
12/01/2022

I haven't seen The Fly since 1989 on video and I was so grossed out I never went back until now. Nowadays, I have a stronger stomach and I have seen quite a few David Cronenberg films to be drawn back in.... After all these years, it's still astonishing from a creature FX POV. Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis are both excellent, even though the script is whiffy - the plot is also overly simplistic and it could have done with a longer running time because Seth Brundle's (Goldblum) decline is too rapid to drum up real sympathy or horror.

Unlike so many other big 80s films, The Fly still works its magic where it counts.
