I love Halloween.
Shit, I love this whole time of year, autumn is my jam.
Maybe it’s why I love horror/dark shit so much.
Nah, I just like gross shit, nothing more, nothing less.
Anyway, over the last few years, I’ve been wanting to do a 31 days of Halloween Marathon and write up the movies. So I’ve finally said fuck it and started last night. My first selection was The Fly II staring nobody’s favorite, Eric Stoltz.
Here’s the Studio’s description so I don’t have to write a fucking book report:
“The almost-human son of “Brundlefly” searches for a cure to his mutated genes while being monitored by a nefarious corporation that wishes to continue his father’s experiments.”
Yeah, that’s it.
You would think with a plot so simple they could really flesh it out, make it real atmospheric and creepy. You know, like Cronenberg’s first film was (Yes, Cronenberg’s The Fly was a remake, but a far superior one). But, nope, no doing. I should have figured it out on my own when I saw the screenplay had been tinkered with by four different writers.
And, yeah, it stars Eric Stoltz AKA Almost Marty McFly.
The Fly II is suck city, skip it.
I’ve got high hopes for tonight’s film. But then again, just about anything is better than The Fly II.
