Thu 27th Oct 8pm: THE FLY (18) USA 1986 92min, dir David Cronenberg.

Cast: Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis, John Getz.

‘There was a mad scientist who swallowed a fly, perhaps he’ll die… In his inspired overhaul of the 1958 original, David Cronenberg’s fusion of romantic melodrama and body horror sees reclusive scientist Seth Brundle fall for journalist Veronica Quaife, as he completes work on a revolutionary teleportation device. But when an experiment goes awry, Seth undergoes a grotesque transformation. Released during the AIDS epidemic, this devastating meditation on death, disease and disintegration was all the more potent given the real-life horrors unfolding at the time.’ BFI.
