Shonagh Jabour and Denise Cronenberg were able to transform the seductive as hell Jeff Goldblum into one of the most hideous things I’ve ever seen. Now that takes REAL skill.
I had to start off with the big one when it came to sliding into David Cronenberg’s filmography, and goodness gracious has there been an “impression” left on me. Stomach-churning in ways unimaginable, The Fly begins as an enchanting love story that slowly spirals into a deranged tragedy that features some truly mind-blowing practical effects. Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis’s cogent performances definitely help elevate this movie far past the ordinary creature-feature territory, as well.
Anyways, I won’t be eating for a while now, thanks to The Fly. I can’t wait to visit more of Cronenberg’s work. Yahoo…
“The Fly” is now available to stream on YouTube, iTunes, Google Play, Vudu, Amazon Prime, and Starz.
