When I first bought this back in december 2002 it was my favourite film ever. Now, I have moved on, but I will always remember what a classic it is.
Jeff Goldblum is a scientist called Seth Brundle, living in a condo. But when he is working on a teleporting experiment, he accidently merges with a housefly. Geena Davis is Veronica, she has fallen in love with him, and has yet to know that he is transforming. Soon, Seth starts to get bad skin, his nails start to fall of, and he begins to get stronger, and Veronica expects something is wrong. When she finds out what's happening to him she realizes that she is going to have a baby, Seth's baby, and she thinks it will become what Seth is about to become. She tries to get the help of her ex-boyfreind (John Getz) and stop Seth for good.
This is a gory film, with a sickening ending and lots of disturbing scenes, but it can also really touch you, you can see how much pain Seth and Veronica are going through in the movie. In my opinion this is an 80s classic. Wonderful performances, great makeup and just a good plain horror movie.
