Description

The Fly is an engrossing exploration of the physical and psychological transformation in which a brilliant scientist begins to mutate into a hybrid of man and fly after one of his experiments goes horribly wrong. Researcher Seth Brundle makes a stunning breakthrough in the field of matter transportation when he successfully teleports a living creature.

An unseen fly enters the transmission booth as well, however, and Brundle soon realizes that his experiment has had “mixed” results.
