Something that often gets overlooked about David Cronenberg’s The Fly also happens to be one of the best things about the classic—it’s a tragic love story. Seth and Veronica’s romance is heart-rending, a love that’s torn apart too soon by a monster. It’s a true classic, a film that that spins a monster story into a multi-layered body horror masterpiece with a love story pumping through its veins. And that’s what makes Matt Ryan’s take on the film so special, too, because his piece focuses on that very thing—love.

Nice poster. I always liked Cronenberg’s the Fly, and I remember the romance there pretty good. It was not emphasised but it was an important part of Seth’s life, apart from his experiments. I also think this movie is one of the best horror movie remakes ever.
You’re spot on about that. The romance doesn’t take front and center but it does have a huge impact on the story. And I totally agree with you, The Fly is easily one of the very best remakes out there!
Oh this is so getting stolen for Alt-Postr-Monday. Thanks, Ryan.
A terrific film, and you described it perfectly. The focus on the romance makes it heartbreaking and compelling.
I thought the effects were pretty good, considering the year it was released?
I could go on all day about Jeff Goldblum’s performance here. Time to see this again!
I’m with you there, I’m about due for a re-watch of this one!
So great! This is my all time favourite horror. And I agree part of the reason I love it IS because it’s such a tragic love story. Seth and Ronnie are both so likable too, it makes it worse! I also like how really, there’s no bad guy yet it’s still incredibly gross and scary.
That’s a great way to put it, Emma. How there’s no real bad guy in the film—such an amazing movie!
