"The Fly"
(David Cronenberg, 1986, 96 min, United States, English, 35mm)

When scientist Seth Brundle 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 is horrified as the person she once loved deteriorates into a monster.

"It's still brilliant and perfect, and profoundly moving-maybe Cronenberg's greatest and most perfect film; a horror tragedy that doesn't cop out, ever." - Matt Zoller Seitz

"David Cronenberg's 'The Fly' is that absolute rarity of the '80s: a film that is at once a pure, personal expression and a superbly successful commercial enterprise." - Dave Kehr

"A gross-your-eyes-out horror movie that is also the year's most poignant romance." - TIME
