“Cronenberg’s masterful remake of The Fly ranks among the most disgusting films ever made by a major studio—it’s packed with stomach-churning images of a scientist’s slow, excruciating metamorphosis into an insect… Brilliantly played by Jeff Goldblum, who adds great emotional depth to his usual spaced-out otherworldlyness, the character breaks from the protagonist of 1958′s The Fly in that he can articulate the changes in his body right to the very end. Though the film’s famous tagline (‘Be afraid. Be very afraid.’) is spoken by Goldblum’s girlfriend (a science journalist played by Geena Davis), she isn’t as terrified by him as she is concerned about his deteriorating health. Take away all the big shocks and special effects, and The Fly is about nothing more or less sensational than death itself, a process that Cronenberg realizes with excruciating visceral power.” – Scott Tobias, The Onion A.V. Club
