I'm happy to report that the sci-fi tome still holds as much power and resonance (to me as much as general audiences) as it did 20 years ago when first released.

Purists may still prefer the original for the sheer strength of its monumental build-up, but I think there's a lot to be said for this version and its conflation of romantic comedy and horror conventions.

Acting, psychological perspicacity and general creepiness all merge to wonderful effect in this deftly 'hijacked' studio movie.

The Fly is scary, emotional, and intellectually rigorous.

I say The Fly is maybe Cronenberg's most accomplished straight horror film, but, then again, a dentist just knocked out three of my teeth.

Cronenberg's masterful remake of The Fly ranks among the most disgusting films ever made by a major studio.

Cronenberg's first masterpiece transcends the original 58 film as a horror gore-fest, achieving poignancy as a metaphor for any modern disease, from cancer to AIDS to old age.
