The Fly (David Cronenberg, 1986)
(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
