31 Days of Horror 2016 Day 21 The Fly

Title-The Fly
Source-Blu Ray

Yep the Cronenberg remake of the classic sci fi film. I first saw this at a young age. And loved it. Had kind of forgotten about it till one night while talking to a buddy that is a huge Cronenberg fan. Went looking for the DVD and found I could get the Blu Ray cheaper than the DVD.

Jeff Goldbloom is a scientist who is trying to make teleportation a reality.After a few failed attempts he gets brave and tries to teleport himself. What he didn't know is a common household fly is in the teleportation pod with him. So it's DNA gets mixed in with his. And the rest of the film shows the horrible consequences of this.

Of course since this is a David Cronenberg film it has to be about body horror. That is the main theme in most of Cronenberg's films. The acting  is damn good. And this is the best Geena Davis has ever been. The FX work is soooooooooooooooo damn good. I have a strong stomach,but there is a few scenes in the film that make me want to vomit.

The Fly gets a A+.
