Science fiction/horror classic that holds up as some of the best work by all involved. Jeff Goldblum gives one of his best performances as Seth Brundle, conveying both his charm & intelligence that you like him even as he starts to transform while also displaying remarkable physicality in the make-up. Goldblum has a fine chemistry with Geena Davis, adding a tragic romance to this already layered film. Behind the camera, Cronenberg crafts one of his finest films, playing with some real science fiction while showing his mastery of 'body horror'. The visual effects themselves remain stunning, helped in large part at they were done practically (Brundle's slow transformation is both horrific yet fascinating too watch) while the story stays leans at 95 minutes (yet another great film under 2 hours). Granted, repeat viewings do show a few plot holes (specifically, why isn't other doctors or the cops not called at some point) but overall, this is one of the finest & scariest science fiction/horror films ever made.
