The Fly

The Fly ★★★★★

Film #28 of Horroctober

''There was an old lady who swallowed a fly, perhaps she'll die.''

Norman Bates from 'Psycho', Hannibal Lecter from 'The Silence of the Lambs', The Fly from 'The Fly, One of these is not like the others, yes it is Hannibal, who was not a full fledged villain in 'Lambs'.

The Fly definitely should rank upon every greatest villain list. What a cold hearted son of bitch that fly was, he completely fucked up Goldblum. The argument of 'oh, he was only a fly, he didn't know' are irrelevant, he definitely had a sinister look in his eyes, he knew what was up.

How good is Jeff Goldblum? this guy is almost on Bill Murray's level (almost), which is as big a compliment I can give anyone. I don't think anyone could have given as much depth to the character of Seth Brundle, he brings the human element to a very inhumane situation and the audience is always given the chance to always feel empathy for Seth. The characters progression is truly incredible, the visual effects are simply phenomenal.

'The Fly' is fucking awesome!
