CINEMATIC VOID 2017
Goopy 1980s Horror Double Feature!
THE FLY / POSSESSION
35 mm!

THE FLY
1986, 20th Century Fox, 100 min, USA, Dir: David Cronenberg

This new version of the 1958 sci-fi hit isn’t just a remake but a complete reimagining, with director David Cronenberg mixing in his own sensibilities about organic life and its startling mutability. Teletransporter inventor Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) inadvertently mixes his genes with a house fly’s when he decides to use himself as guinea pig. His future as a human being, including his romance with science writer Veronica (Geena Davis), changes forever as he begins a slow slide into a gooey half-man/half-insect, complete with superpowers and messianic delusions of grandeur. Chris Walas and Stephen Dupuis won Oscars in 1987 for Best Make-Up.

POSSESSION
1981, Bleeding Light Film Group, 127 min, France/West Germany, Dir: Andrzej Zulawski

In this controversial, unclassifiable cult film, secret agent Mark (Sam Neill) reunites with Anna (Isabelle Adjani) and their young son only to be asked for a divorce. But it’s not because his wife has been seeing another man - when Mark hires a private investigator to follow her, he learns she’s been spending time with a strange, tentacled creature (designed by famed special effects artist Carlo Rambaldi). Director Andrzej Zulawski was in the midst of his own difficult divorce when he came up with this nightmarish mix of domestic distress, bloody violence and bio-horror. Adjani’s performance in dual roles (she also plays Anna’s doppelgänger, Helen) earned a César as well as a Best Actress award at Cannes. “POSSESSION starts on a hysterical note, stays there and surpasses it as the film progresses.” – Variety
