patricia owens is...amazing!!
the fly is such a beautifully macabre story. the concept is so cruelly ironic; a genius science discovery that does work, but which’s use has gone wrong due to thoughtlessness by its own creator.
it’s hard not to compare this to the 80s version, since that one has Hottie™️ Jeff Goldblum and some disgustingly great special effects. this one does have vincent price who is a hottie as well, but more importantly the setup is far more effective. the choice of the framing story being the aftermath of the films event makes the story more suspenseful and more tragic.
