The Fly (1986)
96 min.
Directed by David Cronenberg.
With Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis, John Getz, Joy Boushel, Les Carlson.
In addition to first rate acting, this powerful remake of the 1950s Vincent Price classic benefits from Cronenberg's obsessive fascination with human biological systems and viral mishaps.

An overachieving scientist (Goldblum) is working on molecular transportation succeeds....with mixed results.

During the teleportation process, the experiment is compromised as the DNA of a human and a household fly co-mingle.

And there's not a fly swatter big enough to squash the madness that ensues.

Goldblum and Davis have superb chemistry here, the plot is foolproof, the gore is great.

And the ending will break your little insect heart...
