Be afraid. Be very afraid.

When scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) completes his teleportation device, he decides to test its abilities on himself. Unbeknownst to him, a housefly slips in during the process, leading to a merger of man and insect. Initially, Brundle appears to have undergone a successful teleportation, but the fly's cells begin to take over his body. As he becomes increasingly fly-like, Brundle's girlfriend (Geena Davis) is horrified as the person she once loved deteriorates into a monster.

Certified Fresh – Rotten Tomatoes

“The Fly is a mass-market, horror film masterpiece that is also a work of art.” – Globe and Mail

“What makes The Fly such a stunning piece of obsessive film making is the way Cronenberg deftly allows us to identify with his monstrous creation.” – Los Angeles Times

“Wildly imaginative, gut-wrenchingly scarifying and profoundly primal (not to mention funny), David Cronenberg's The Fly is a movie that whacks you in the solar plexus and leaves you gasping.” – Philadelphia Inquirer

“As slimy and as grotesque as some of its special effects become, The Fly is a far superior horror film to the top-grossing film in America of late…” – Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
