    The Fly

    ★★★★½

    David Cronenberg´s “The Fly” is the quintessence and pinnacle of body horror. Watch it and you´ll understand what the subgenre is all about. Few other movies capture the horror of unstoppable change, loss of control, and loss of your identity as well as this one. The film features some of the most impressive as well as most disgusting practical makeup effects I´ve ever seen, but the true terror for me is psychological rather than visual.

    Ah, “Alien”. It might be strange to call a disturbing horror movie a comfort film, but that´s exactly what “Alien” is to me. No matter how often I´ve seen it, with every rewatch I love it a bit more. 40 years after its release, it remains the benchmark for the space horror genre and a masterclass in almost every aspect of filmmaking, may it be direction, screenplay, worldbuilding, cinematography, editing, set design, creature design, special effects, sound…
