A slow burn sci-fi freakout, this thrilling film was well written and performed. My only hope was for a better conclusion (less abrupt, don't you think?). I would recommend it.

The Fly is without a doubt one of David Cronenberg's best films. The movie becomes more than a meager horror-based science fiction flick. Cronenberg excellently explores the relationships between man and technology, man and animal, and worsening laziness and imminent doom. Although there are multiple themes embedded within The Fly, it is still a terrifying horror film. The gore and violence are prevalent, but it's very tastefully done. This is by far one of the best remakes ever made. This is how it's done.
