The Fly Review

Image for The Fly

Genius scientist Brundle has found a way to transport matter instantly from one place to another, but when he tests his theory on himself he becomes a mutant - half man, half fly.


David Cronenberg's triumphant reworking of the 1958 Vincent Price flick remains his most accessible film, meshing his perennial obsessions with disease, decay and metamorphosis into an exuberantly handled, shamelessly melodramatic love story - albeit a love story in which one partner is a pus-packed bluebottle.

Cronenberg's most triumphant and accessible film to date.
