Who said "Be afraid, be very afraid"?

Answer

The line "Be afraid, be very afraid" was originally said in the 1986 movie "The Fly" by Geena Davis, playing Veronica Quaif. The horror movie also starred Jeff Goldblum as scientist Seth Brundle.

In the film, Brundle is a scientist who ends up turning into a fly, pleading with other characters in the film "Don't be afraid." This is the point in the movie when Veronica Quaif chimes in with the infamous line. The shortened version, "Be very afraid," was already a common tag line within the United States by 1986. For example, it was used during an episode of "All My Children" in 1970.
