“Be afraid. Be very afraid.”
Welcome to Harbour Highlights, a selection of cult and classic films handpicked by the Harbour Lights staff. This month’s choice is a perfect choice for the month of Halloween – David Cronenberg’s classic horror The Fly.
In one of his most iconic roles, Jeff Goldblum stars as Seth Brundle, a scientist whose quest to perfect teleportation technology leads to a horrific accident – and an even more horrific transformation as he finds himself losing his humanity as he physically deteriorates into the new form of Brundlefly.
Regarded as one of the few remakes to better the original, The Fly is famous for its incredible practical effects, Howard Shore’s score and Cronenberg’s stunning visuals, making it the perfect film to revisit on the big screen.
