Fly, The (remake)

"What comes in must eventually come out..."

A researcher cannot wait to try his new teleportation module. The process consists of breaking down the molecules of a body in one of the cabins and recreating them in the other one. Lacking a human guinea pig, the researcher tests it on himself. What he ignores is that a fly joined him for the trip.

The experiment seemed to be a brilliant success. But as time passes, more he doubts that something has gone wrong. He slowly is transformed into a half-fly, half-human creature. His body and personality are transformed into something monstrous.





Is this an exaggerated concept? I don't believe so. I find this concept great and very realistic. We mention in the movie that the machine bases its calculation on only one element. Obviously, we should have encountered a man-fly as soon as the teleportation was finished, but the idea is still there.

This movie is a wink to those suffering of fatal diseases. In my opinion, there is no greater fear than fear of yourself and The Fly discusses the subject. At first, Seth, the researcher, seems to be in great shape: he is agile, strong and full of energy. But as time passes, he becomes evil, impatient and loses parts of his body. Every time he vomits or decomposes, we explicitly see the scene and the evolution of his transformation. This film is violent and it is a realistic violence that sends shivers down our backs.

The actors are superb and brilliantly illustrate the psychological aspect behind the troubles in their love relationship they live because of the transformation.
