WATCH: HALLOWEEN TREAT: Oliver Video reviews Cronenberg’s The Fly

October 30th, 2013 by Oliver Harper Comments


The big day is here tomorrow and to celebrate, Oliver is bringing out the big guns as he video reviews a movie that repulsed – and excited – an entire generation of movie fans…

The Fly (1986)

David Cronenberg, not well known for producing mainstream movies, received his biggest hit to date with The Fly in 1986. Inspired by the original short story published in 1957 and borrowing elements from the 1958 classic starring David Hedison, the movie is fondly remembered for its heart-breaking story of lovers Seth Brundle, played Jeff Goldblum, and Veronica, played by Gena Davis, and of course the incredibly gruesome make-up effects. The make up work shocked a lot of people, including myself as a kid, and is something that will stick in your mind after you’ve watched it.

Let’s have a look back at this classic and see why it still remains a favourite with horror fans!

Oliver Harper is, like the rest of us at FTN, a bit of a movie freak. He watches, thinks and then breaks down all the classics that were or may never have been. A big fan of 80s cinema, his trivia knowledge is phenomenal and the best part? He records great little videos to share his knowledge. Epic. Find Oliver's updates here:!/groups/370105659683174/--
