Reviews

Cult horror director David Cronenberg found mainstream success with this remake of the 1958 horror classic and Chris Walas and Stephan Dupuis won an Oscar for their make-up effects. Scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum), experimenting with transmitting matter uses himself as a guinea-pig, unaware that a fly has got into the machinery. As he embarks on a relationship with Veronica Quaife (Geena Davis), the journalist covering his project, his body slowly begins to take on fly-like characteristics.

Format: DVD
I agree entirely with the previous reviewer that the Limited Edition Box Set is of a poor standard. The box itself, cheap plastic which will have a limited life span due to its flimsy design. Also the plastic pod inside will have to be handled with care if it wants to last.

As for the movies themselves, they are absolutely first class. Each film has an outstanding print, and that is despite that the first three movies were made from the late 1950s until the mid 1960s. The original Fly remains a classic, although it looks dated. But, the strong storyline, and a superb cast hold it together. The Return of The Fly is a B Movie which were popular with cinema audiences during the 1950s and is worth seeing. This one does have a happy ending though. The wonderful character actor Vincent Price appears in them both, and I am sure his fans will love these. The Curse of The Fly is rarely shown on television nowadays which is a pity because it is a rather decent B Movie made in England (at Shepperton Studios which stands in for Montreal). Two fine British actors, George Baker and Carole Gray supported by Irish-American actor Brian Donlevy (Quatermass) make a fine job of this little known movie. It does have a few shocks, with some great make up effects, and a rather surprising ending.

The remake of The Fly dating from 1986 is superb. Its a classic in its own right. Wonderfully directed by Canadian David Cronenberg who doesnt limit the shocks and make up effects throughout does a superb job. Of course, mention must be made of Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis, two very fine actors indeed who carry this movie throughout to an amazing end sequence which even after twenty years when the movie was first released, still shocks today.

Format: DVD
I had the good fortune of watching this again on DVD the other day (the cinema reserve 2 disc set - superior quality) after only seeing it once when it was first out on video.

When I first watched it, I was 12 and repulsed by the more gruesome elements which stuck in my mind for ages afterwards (the arm wrestle, the poor baboon, the whole brundlefly metamorphosis).

Watching it now as an adult, it is quite a different film to what I remember - it is a deeply moving and satisfying piece of cinema which is at times horrible to look at, but always manages to keep the viewer right in the centre of the narrative.

The grotesque elements are there but they don't seem thrown in purely for shocks - there is a story resonating beneath the onscreen mayhem and at no time does the film become too gross or too predictable. Cronenberg has a definite story to tell us and he weaves his magic to make the film both involving and satisfying.

It is a horror film, but the real horror are the subtexts of the film - Brundle's realisation of what's happening to him and not being able to stop it; Veronica's pregnancy and so much more. The special effects are extremely good and this isn't a film you should go into if you've got a weak stomach, but it is an enjoyable, horrifying and fascinating trip into what happens when something goes wrong in the lab, very wrong!

Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) meets Veronica Quaife (Geena Davis) at a party, he's a brilliant scientist and she's a journalist. Seth tells Veronica about something he's working on that would "change the world as we know it", convinced by this she goes back to Seth's apartment/lab to see his invention. Once inside Veronica is shown two "designer phone booth" looking objects, Seth then teleports Veronica's tights from one telepod to the other. Skeptical at first, she soon realises that Seth has discovered a new way of travelling that could make all other forms of transportation a thing of the past. The pods are only able to transport inanimate objects, so Seth and Veronica come to an agreement that she will document him as he works on the project, so that living tissue can pass between pods. During the documentation, Seth and Veronica fall in love, much to the annoyance of Veronica's former boyfriend and editor, Stathis Borans (John Getz). One night after finally perfecting transporting living tissue between pods, he and Veronica are celebrating when she has to leave to stop the jealous Stathis from printing the story early. A drunk Seth starts thinking that maybe Veronica and Stathis were working together to get the story, so he decides to go through the pod himself. Unfortunately for Seth, a housefly got into the pod and his DNA is spliced together with the fly's. The movie then follows Seth as his body begins to turn into a six foot fly, and the relationship between Seth and Veronica who love each other deeply but are horrified by his appearance.

The acting by Goldblum, Davis and Getz is fantastic, I don't think any of the three have ever given better performances.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Bug DeLug on 12 May 2010
Format: Blu-ray
Let me state from the beginning that this is my favourite film of all time. I am a huge movie buff and have a massive library of dvd's, and yet somehow this still remains my number one. There are many reasons for this- the film races along at a terrific pace throughout and is the perfect meld of sci-fi, horror and drama. The direction by David Cronenberg is simply sublime. Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis and John Getz are all perfectly cast in their roles. The effects are still strong and hold up nearly 25 years after the films initial release.

The story follows Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum), who is working on something quite big- a pair of telepods that allow for instant teleportation. The film begins with him inviting the lovely Vernonica Quaife (Geena Davis) back to his apartment/ lab to see what he has been working on. She is amazed at what she finds and the two of them decide that she will follow him and write a book about his invention. Before long the two fall in love, and her boss (John Getz) gets extremely jealous of this; beginning an intriguing love triangle. In the meantime, something went wrong when Seth Brundlefly teleported himself for the first time. Something got in there with him and went undetected, causing genetic splicing between himself and a housefly. From thereon things get extremely weird, and gory...

I cannot rave about this film enough. Jeff Goldblum gives one of the truly quintessential lead performances in his role of Seth Brundle- from his nerdy, awkward beginnings to his horrific demise in the final third. I won't spoil anything for the uninitiated other than to say this is like a superhero movie gone wrong. Instead of becoming selfless and heroic as a result of the splicing incident, he becomes hell-bent on self preservation.
