    I do prefer the 1986 remake because of how director David Cronenberg does an excellent job not only making the story much more emotionally involved with the audience, but also representing the time in which the movie was made.

    Seth Brundle’s transformation into Brundlefly parallels with the AIDS epidemic and how it makes us think about our bodies because of what we do with ourselves which makes it really suspenseful! It’s still a great horror remake that holds up well after about 25 years!

    I just have one thing to say…the animals I’m scared of most is friggin’ FLIES! They’re okay when they’re far away or small but when their faces are enlarged or close up, they are shit-your-pants frightening.
    I’ve enerv seen teither of the movies but I defiantely don’t wanna see the 1986 version, mainly because of my fear of flies and the fact that things happen in that film like his jaw falls off and his testacles are actually removed at one point.

    I saw the 86 remake with Goldblum and Davis on tv as a kid…it was so gross!

    I remember Jeff Goldblum’s “The Fly” scared me a fucking lot; it was so disgusting, morbid and surreal! I was afraid of the dark for years because of this movie.Prolly i had 6-8 years maybe; how the hell did my parents allow me to watch these films??

    The Fly 2 is a forgetful movie? It doesn’t have a good memory?

    I love the random asides. “Fucking fly mask. There we go.” 🙂

    I have the telepod boxset, which is a great set for collectors. The remake is fantastic. I remember an episode of Dexter’s Lab where the same thing happened as in the original The Fly. I have to add The Blob as one of the best remakes as well, that movie was awesome.

    I personally enjoy The Fly II. It’s obviously not as good as the original 1958 version nor its predecessor, but it’s still interesting, has great lore, and Eric Stoltz does a great job.
