Monsters and Matinees: Still buzzing about ‘The Fly’ trilogy

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Toni Ruberto on Feb 8, 2020

It’s easy to think of the 1958 film The Fly in two words: “help me.” That phrase – often said in a silly high-pitched voice meant to mimic the film – is from an iconic moment that still brings chills today. It’s so popular that the actors even signed autographs with “help me.” read more

Duel (1971, Steven Spielberg), the theatrical version

The Stop Button Posted by on Feb 7, 2020

The first act of Duel ought to be enough to carry it. Spielberg’s direction, Frank Morriss’s editing, even Jack A. Marta’s workman photography—it’s spellbinding.
