David Cronenberg took the frightening scientific theories presented in the original version of The Fly and ran off into a dark corner with them, adding horrifying special effects to a tale that was already especially horrible to imagine.
The 1986 version of The Fly isn't like other reboots because it actually improves on the original film, and the disturbing special effects by Chris Walas, who won an Oscar for his work on the film, are still horrifying to behold nearly thirty years later.
Speaking of horrifying, Geena Davis was so horrified while filming the scene where Seth's ear falls off that her look isn't acting, because she was genuinely disgusted by the effect. Now that's Oscar worthy!
