The Fly   April 25th, 2010

Originally Written 05/06/09

I watched the original movie, The Fly on Netflix tonight. I was expecting a schlocky horror movie, but I was impressed with how good it was. Sure it was a bit dated and goofy in a couple of places, but for the time it was a serious and thoughtful science-fiction film.

Cronenberg’s remake in the 80s was fun and entertaining and an effective horror movie, from what I remembered, but it got lost in the drippy gore, like he tends to. I liked how this one had plenty of humanity and melodrama in it.
