Say what you will about remakes, but in my opinion, the '80s featured a handful that were substantially better than their original counterparts. John Carpenter's The Thing, Chuck Russell's The Blob and David Cronenberg's The Fly, are a few shining examples. In this new clip from In Search of Darkness, Fangoria Editor-in-Chief Phil Nobile Jr. reflects on Cronenberg's body horror masterpiece.
