The Fly (1986)
We didn’t have room for this tragic, disturbing sci-fi romance on Valentine’s weekend, but what were we gonna do, NOT show The Fly? Come be afraid (very afraid) with us for one of our very favorite films.
When scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) 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 (Geena Davis) is horrified as the person she once loved deteriorates into a monster.
