The Fly


Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) is a research scientist, employed by Bartok Sciences, who has invented "Telepods" two matter transmission pods that teleports any object through space from one "Telepod" to the other "Telepod". But, it is until Seth meets journalist Veronica Quaife (Geena Davis) who inspires Seth to correct the system, that Seth achieves successful teleportation. But something goes horribly wrong, when Seth uses himself as a guinea-pig in a matter transmission experiment, as he teleports himself, unaware his genes have been fused with a house fly that was trapped in the telepod with him. Seth, now finds himself slowly transforming into a terrifying mutant creature known as "Brundlefly" as he finds himself in a fierce battle as his mutated genes begins to take over.

Great acting all around which is becoming increasing rare in the sci-fi/horror genre. Goldblum's portrayal of going from the caring inventor who only wants to do good in the world through his decent into madness as the hideous fly is flawless. Geena Davis' performance as the journalist who falls in love with Seth is also very persuasive.
