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.
“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
