September is upon us, summer is slowly drifting away for another year and the countdown clock that silently ticks away at the top of this very page now tells me it is only 58 days until October 31st 2014.
To celebrate the journey towards Halloween I’m going to do something I’ve wanted to attempt since I first started writing here on Halloween Love … put together a definitive list of my personal favorite horror movie moments and scenes. I hope you will agree with some, probably raise an eyebrow at others and maybe a few will be pleasant surprises.
Today my choice is the finale to a gruesome but tragic 80s horror classic …
58 : The Fly 1986 : Seth Brundle Completes His Transformation.
There are several scenes I could have chosen from David Cronenberg’s gory 1986 epic, but ultimately what sticks in my mind, and always has, is the unforgettable conclusion to Seth Brudle’s transformation, with all of the incredible practical effects work involved.
I’ve always felt that The Fly is a spiritual relation to John Carpenter’s The Thing. Both show what can be achieved when you remake a classic movie that is READY to be remade … Giving interesting stories modern spins and involving science to terrify and challenge the audience. The Fly never rushes, you go on a journey with Jeff Goldblum’s doomed scientist and it’s easy to feel for the guy and connect with him thanks to some high quality acting and direction. A wonderful movie that I watch every chance I get.
