A brilliant but eccentric scientist begins to transform into a giant man/fly hybrid after one of his experiments goes horribly wrong.
Scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum), experimenting with transmitting matter uses himself as a guinea-pig, unaware that a fly has got into the machinery. As he embarks on a relationship with Veronica Quaife (Geena Davis), the journalist covering his project, his body slowly begins to take on fly-like characteristics.

“What makes The Fly such a stunning piece of obsessive filmmaking is the way Cronenberg deftly allows us to identify with his monstrous creation.” -Patrick Goldstein, 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.” -Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
