This is a great, great sequence, so if you’ve never seen David Cronenberg’s The Fly, spoiler alert — skip to the next slide. After she learns that she is pregnant by a man who has accidentally fused his DNA with that of a common housefly, Veronica (Geena Davis) worries that the genetic mutation suffered by father Seth (Jeff Goldblum) could lie dormant in her unborn child. She goes to the hospital where (as delivered by director Cronenberg), she gives birth to an absolutely terrifying, blood-covered, squirming, large maggot-like creature. That the whole thing is a dream matters not, so effectively does the film make it seem as if it were a reality.
