Doctors. Aside from the medical field, they've excelled in so many areas. Literature… Dr. Seuss. Sports… Dr. J. Sugary beverages… Dr. Pepper. Successful doctors are everywhere. And they've certainly left their mark in - and on - the horror genre.
Just a couple of days after David Cronenberg talked about his new vision for The Fly, Todd Lincoln, who was in line before Cronenberg, has decided to talk about what he wanted to do.
Ever since Fox passed on David Cronenberg's script for a new film in The Fly franchise, the director has remained tight-lipped about the project, stating only that “I wrote a script, and at the moment Fox is not wanting to do the project.” That changes now.
"The road to hell is paved with good intentions." Truer words were never spoken. So when someone decides to construct a body from cadaver parts and reanimate it with a lightning bolt, or surgically connect three people with one gastroenterological tract, they always hope for the best. Unfortunately, that's not usually the result.
In a world where everything just short of the kitchen sink is being remade by Hollywood, you really have to wonder why a major studio would put the kibosh on another remake/sequel from one of the top directors working in the field who actually wants to work on the project. Sadly, that's exactly what has happened.
It's always cool to get a look at stuff that you're not necessarily supposed to see. Such is the case right now as a literal Pandora's box of unused movie art has slipped online, and we have some choice bits for you right here!
Creepy ... crawly ... creepy ... crawly ... creepycreepycrawlycrawly, creepycreepycrawlycrawly ... Certainly no one every musically expressed humanity's inherent fear of the creepy crawlies better than The Who in the 1966 John Entwistle-penned song "Boris the Spider". This number was an ode to one particular ill-fated spider, but it smartly illustrated the strange, seemingly inborn fear the majority of us have of bugs ... yuck!
Lately some of the coolest collectibles on the market have been bobble heads, and few companies give better head than Funko. This September they have a new line of bobbles hitting the market that includes two of our most favorite creatures: Cthulhu and The Fly.
The above headline kind of makes our heads hurt a little. Just a little. Two questions beckon ... Why remake a remake? and If you're going to remake a remake, who better than the director of the original remake to remake his own remake into a brand new remake? Okay. I'm gonna need some Advil, stat!

Of all the films of David Cronenberg I would’ve expected to eventually become operas, I would have to say The Fly was one of the least likely. I mean, I could see Dead Ringers done melodiously before The Fly, but that’s why Cronenberg is a genius.
