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.

If you haven't seen this yet and like awesome remakes along the lines of The Blob and The Thing (Carpenters not the new one although I like that one as well) then you probably need to see this.
Jeff Goldblum at his best (still a nerdy scientist but the acting I found was topnotch all around) plays Seth a scientist who invents a teleportation device and through the first phase of human testing is brought to a chaotic situation you could say and begins to slowly turn into a giant ugly human fly hybrid.
As he was on the cusp of perfecting the device and before turning himself into a fly he becomes involved with a reporter (Barbara Hershey) from a science magazine who is with him almost every step of the way as he perfects his machine and gets it ready for experimenting on things like monkeys that turn out to have horrible results.
That's the most I'll give away for the story line but the special effects (no CGI wasn't around back then) is topnotch like the afore mentioned movies above.
There's nothing cheap about them, and are rather disgusting and nothing takes a back seat to anything.
The story is great and not predictable (at least not to me) and as some people will agree it's got an element of a love story firmly nestled in there.
It isn't to vulgar and the nudity is barely noticeable but the grossness is there.
A fantastic science/horror movie, I don't own a DVD copy yet because I've seen it a hundred times and I'm in no hurry but it can be found for cheap I'm sure and definitely worth every penny.
