A brilliant but eccentric scientist play by Jeff Goldblum begins to transform into a giant man/fly hybrid after one of his experiments goes horribly wrong. Cronenberg combines his trademark affinity for gore and horror with strongly developed characters, making THE FLY a surprisingly affecting tragedy. “Cronenberg’s masterful remake of THE FLY ranks among the most disgusting films ever made by a major studio. Jeff Goldblum adds great emotional depth to his usual spaced-out otherworldliness. Take away all the big shocks and special effects, and THE FLY is about nothing more or less sensational than death itself, a process that Cronenberg realizes with excruciating visceral power.” (Scott Tobias)
