1986. USA. Dir: David Cronenberg. With Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis. 96 min.
A teleportation experiment goes horribly wrong when a handsome scientist accidentally fuses his DNA with that of a house fly. Cronenberg riffs on “Beauty and the Beast” via his own signature brand of gruesome horror and top-notch makeup effects. What results is a deeply moving drama with profound reflections on the frailty of human life and acidic mucous vomit.
