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.Read more ›
Where the film does start to look dated is from the moment Brundle splits apart and the fly puppet shuffles around, and compared with the latex work of Carpenter's The Thing, also from the same sfx period, it's not dated well at all (but not worth removing a star for). However, although the jewel in the crown at the time, it's no more ridiculous looking than some of the CGI that will date many otherwise great films around today (yes I Am Legend - I'm looking at you). So if you're not a Cronenburg fan, why would you watch an old 80's horror flick which crescendo's in a pile of dodgy latex? Jeff Goldblum is truly amazing in this film - he completely convinces you his character is mutating into something monstrous - not just to look at, but inside too - yet he still manages to give some flashes of his character's lingering humanity. Geena Davis is excellent too, her reactions to Brundle's changes are perfect - mingling disgust and symapthy against a backdrop of mounting horror. This was (in my opinion) Cronenberg's most mature film at the time he made it, because his focus is clearly on the character development, and although some of the horror later on is pretty familiar to fans, I don't get the impression that he was too fixated on that - his focus is on Brundle's deterioration.
