The Fly

Funny to think David Cronenberg almost didn't direct this remake as he was supposed to be filming TOTAL RECALL. That went to the winds and now THE FLY stands right up there with THE THING as being not only a great remake but a better one. All of the themes Cronenberg is famous for exploring are blended together in one pot with this one and the effect is stunning. Some of Jeff Goldblum's best work to date and despite being once again dated as Cronenberg's work seems to be it does still deliver in the scare department. Look for the great George Chuvalo in the now famous arm wrestling scene.
