This version of THE FLY is an update of the original horror classic about a brilliant scientist who develops a machine that molecularly transports objects in seconds, but inadvertently combines his DNA with that of a fly. Jeff Goldblum gives an outstanding performance as Seth Brundle, the heart-wrenching victim. David Cronenberg's classic won an Academy Award for Best Makeup.

Movie Critics
Empire
"[T]his is a perfectly structured film....Typical of Cronenberg is the combination of graphic sickness and good humour that accompanies Brundle's metamorphosis..."
Kim Newman (1 May 2008, p.161)
Los Angeles Times
"...THE FLY plunges deeper into the forbidding realm of genetic dysfunction with genuinely unsettling results....It unfolds with such eerie grandeur that it will leave you stoked with a creepy high for hours after you've left the theater..."
Patrick Goldstein (14 Aug 1986, p.C1)
New York Times
"THE FLY explores hidden fears of sex and reproduction, but it also allows a tenderness to blossom between Mr. Goldblum and Ms. Davis that is touching and exceptional in his work."
Dave Kehr (18 Oct 2005, p.E3)
Total Film
"[T]ouching and humorous."
Jamie Graham (1 Jan 2004, p.134-5)
Ultimate DVD
5 stars out of 5 -- "Davis delivers one of her finest performances....It's easy to see how this masterpiece established Cronenberg as a bastion of the body-horror genre."
Ultimate DVD Staff (1 May 2008, p.83)
Variety
"...[Cronenberg] is expertly able to create some shocking scenes....Visually intriguing..."
Jagr. (13 Aug 1986, )
