“HELP ME!” – The Fly (1958)
You’ll either be genuinely set back in your seat, gripped by the moment, or you’ll burst out laughing. The Fly hasn’t aged so well, and so – understandably – has its dramatic finale. One of the sci-fi horror classics, The Fly remains a poignant film even if it’s lost its power to frighten the modern, horror-hardened filmgoer. As for the high-pitched squeal, there remains something haunting in David Hedison’s delivery.
