Sci-Fi Film Series: The Fly
USA, 1986, 96 Minute Running Time
7pm Wednesday, August 1 at the Denver FilmCenter/Colfax with post-film discussion led by Jeff Stephenson, zoology collections manager
While testing his teleportation device, scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) accidentally merges his cells with those of a housefly. As his reporter girlfriend (Geena Davis) bears witness, Seth slowly -- and quite disgustingly -- morphs into an insect. David Cronenberg's 1986 remake of the Vincent Price original achieves an unlikely concoction of horror, romance and pathos, thanks largely to Goldblum's strangely touching performance.
