About the Movie
In a remake of the 1958 cult classic, a young scientist transforms himself into a fly in an experiment gone horribly wrong. Seth Brundle, a brilliant but eccentric scientist attempts to woo investigative journalist Veronica Quaife by offering her a scoop on his latest research in the field of matter transportation, which against all the expectations of the scientific establishment have proved successful. Up to a point, Brundle thinks he has ironed out the last problem when he successfully transports a living creature, but when he attempts to teleport himself a fly enters one of the transmission booths, and Brundle finds he is a changed man.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A gross-your-eyes-out horror movie that is also the year's most poignant romance.
Fresh: David Cronenberg's remake of the 1958 horror classic The Fly is not for the squeamish. Casting Jeff Goldblum was a good choice as he brings a quirky, common touch to the spacey scientist role.
Fresh: What makes The Fly such a stunning piece of obsessive film making is the way Cronenberg deftly allows us to identify with his monstrous creation.
Fresh: As slimy and as grotesque as some of its special effects become, The Fly is a far superior horror film to the top-grossing film in America of late, Aliens.
Ugh! I still remember the first time I watched this movie, it's still uncomfortable to watch it! Great horror movie but it still scares the hell out me and my friends. All in all a well recommended movie to scare someone and make them have nightmares!
Unsettling and Exciting
A total gross out-from pukes to when his ear falls off- it's disturbing but I couldn't bring myself from watching the end.
Watch if you dare!
Way to much $ for the movie.
Great movie but why is it 17.99? You can buy it on blu ray for 7.99. Come on apple!
