F&L: Classic

First and Last: taking the classic approach today in both subject (horror classic) and form of this series (the first image after the opening credits and last image before "the end")

Can you guess the movie?

Highlight for the answer: THE FLY (1958) "Help meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"

I want to say The Omen, but something tells me I'm wrong.

The Fly

I should add, The Fly from 1958, I think. Not my favourite version. I think Cronenberg's is much better, both in vision and execution.


The Fly it is... not the Cronenberg version. Though I do enjoy that the original movie starts in Canada and Cronenberg is Canadian.

Jay said...

But the original got all the Canadian things wrong.

For example, DeLambre, the last name of the protangonist, is not a quebecois name, it's a France french name.

It's still a fun little curio of film history. It had a fantastic screenplay though, by James Clavell.

The Fly for sure!!! That little park is embedded into my brain. That ending, though we laugh about it now, was so horrifying the first time I saw it.

"help me"

I think I was about 7 or 8 when I first saw it.

"help me"
