  • Richard Corliss

    A gross-your-eyes-out horror movie that is also the year's most poignant romance.

    David Cronenberg's remake of the 1958 horror classic The Fly is not for the squeamish. Casting Jeff Goldblum was a good choice as he brings a quirky, common touch to the spacey scientist role.

  • Caryn James

    A film that tries to be too many things at once - funny but not campy, sad and scary, a horror story and a human tragedy

  • Pat Graham

    It's an interesting experiment Cronenberg's attempted, if ultimately in the wrong direction.

    The Fly is that rare species of movie - a remake that far surpasses the original and, quite frankly, all expectations. [15 Aug 1986]
