The Fly (1958)

I don’t necessarily see what all the buzz is about. This movie does have some good acting with Vincent Price and Patricia Owens. It has quite the little mystery going too at the start, with a man squashed in a compressor… but then there are some long boring segments that do indeed fill in the backstory, but I was starting to lose interest faster than a fly without sugar. I do think some of the special effects were nice, especially when it came to the fly. The final sequence with the web was pretty horrifying even by today’s standards. I just think the slow pacing of the film made me daydream about watching something a little more action oriented. I’m spoiled I know.

67/100
