Binro the Heretic - 2015-04-19 Even more cringe-inducing: It wasn't fatal. Some more security guards arrive moments later and find him lying on the floor, breathing and moaning in pain.
There was quite a lot of this sort of thing in the third act building up to the climax. Brundlefly Jr. grabs one of the guards in a bear hug with one pair of arms and uses its other pair of arms to fold him in half backwards.
It was one of those great movies full of disposable bad guys who deserved what they got.
Caminante Nocturno - 2015-04-19 There was also a guard dog that got what it deserved (a nice pat on the head).
Mother Lumper - 2015-04-19 This entire movie existed to one-up its predecessor in so many deliciously disturbing ways.
infinite zest - 2015-04-20 This is the first I've heard of it. Looks like they really Cronenberged it up this time.
StanleyPain - 2015-04-20 Cronenberg had nothing to do with the movie, but it was directed by Chris Walas who was the special effects director on the original Fly and had worked with Cronenberg on some other stuff. It was pretty much just an excuse to go as gory as possible.
infinite zest - 2015-04-20 But it has so many uses! Gory Videodrome Cronenberg or Boring Maps to the Stars Cronenberg?
Caminante Nocturno - 2015-04-20 I'd like to tell someone that they've "really Cronenberged it up this time" some day. However, if I were ever in a situation where I could say it, I'd probably be too busy screaming in horror.
Binro the Heretic - 2015-04-20 "The Fly II" is about the same gore level as "The Brood" but it's a straight-up monster flick without any of the psychological horror.
Chris Walas also did all the creature FX in Cronenberg's film version of "Naked Lunch".
Needtodestroy - 2015-04-20 "Cronenberg" this "up" you bastards!
rural - 2015-04-21 I think what you mean to say is that what we saw in "The Fly" was just the tip of the Cronenberg.
