Fire On The Side: The Fly II

Until you've seen someone dissolve a human hand off with vomit, there's just something missing in your life.

In Cronenberg's much-lauded remake of The Fly, Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) dissolves Stathis Borans' hand and foot by regurgitating his corrosive fly vomit on it. My uncle described this at the time (1986), and I didn't think much of the idea, but you have to see it to grok the whole vomit drop phenomenon.

I taped the campy sequel, The Fly II, but it's been 5-6 years since I saw it. Not only does "Martinfly", genetic successor to "Brundlefly", dissolve limbs, but as this review notes, he gets the head of one of the evil overlord's guards (warning: very graphic). Also, the movie is worth while just to see Daphne Zuniga chewing the scenery. She's further over the top here than as Princess Vespa in Spaceballs. No, really!

Also, note to bioinformaticians: what gene expression modeling program is complete without Skin Lump Simulation?

Curse you! I never saw the sequel, but I have seen the remake of which you speak and you just have to love Jeff Goldblum doing chin-ups and arm-wrestling with PROPORTIONAL FLY STRENGTH POWER.

And there's more!
That's not all he does with proportional fly strength power. As you can see from the sequel, them ladies can't resist the fly-loving.

Proportional fly-size genitalia? O.o

Your guess is as good as mine!
I'm sure I wouldn't know! Geena Davis does make a double-entendre remark to Jeff Goldblum about stamina at one point during the fly-loving, though.
