i is for... in­sects The Fly

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Penny dreadful -

David Cro­nen­berg, 1986

The pin­na­cle of grim body hor­ror where in­sect DNA mixes with Jeff Gold­blum’s to grad­u­ally erode his hu­man­ity, dis­tanc­ing him from love in­ter­est Geena Davis. An al­le­gory of age­ing and self dis­gust as man be­comes in­sect while try­ing to hold onto his soul. The 1958 ver­sion is com­pletely dif­fer­ent – a tragic love story but very much worth watch­ing too.
