The Fly Review
Written by: MistressOf Horror
In David Cronenberg's remake of the 1958 classic, Jeff Goldblum plays Seth Brundle, a young scientist on the verge of creating "TelePods," a machine that teleports a person from one TelePod to another. The Story follows Seth , an eccentric geek who is shy but funny.. .
He is also very taken with Veronica Quaife (Geena Davis), a reporter helping him with, what they think is, the "story of the year." But the only problem is, the TelePods won't transport matter, and when they do, what happens isn't a pretty sight. In fact its very very ugly. Veronica and Seth soon fall in love . After Seth irons all the bugs out of the Pods, he uses the first human test subject: himself. But a common housefly entered the Pod with him, and the machine spliced their DNA together.
As Seth's strength starts to increase along with his anger, the fly genes inside of him start to awaken and Seth begins an evolution from human to a horrific man/insect creature he calls "BrundleFly." Veronica is torn from helping the man she loves and being repulsed by the Man/Fly he is becoming. A fantastic movie with some great directing and some very creepy scare and gross factors.. Goldblum and Davis really own their roles. A brilliant remake. I never tire of watching this film
