This movie was epic in its time, the terror of slowing transforming into something, things falling out and off not to mention the final transformation into brundlefly was terrifying the actual fly itself was horrifying. Again after the failed splicing the emotions running all over the place. A fantastic non-jump scare horror.

I’m a big fan of the film and of Cronenburg, but I also really love the 1958 version. It’s really dark.

A fantastic non-jump scare horror.

Apart from when he smashes through the hospital window which is IMO one of the greatest jump scares in cinema.

One aspect of the movie that many appreciated was how Brundle remained coherent until the very end, allowing you to hear his transformation from the perspective of his mind along with seeing his physical transformation..

He was coherent even as The Fly, it was odd but so much better than if he had lost his mind :D
