A classic science-fiction/horror film about a scientist's "teleport" machines, which dissolve atoms in one place to recreate them in another. When the scientist unwittingly shares the machine with a common housefly, he turns into a hideous hybrid of man and insect--and begins to literally bug out. The scientist wants to reverse the process, but first he must catch that fly. Hilarious as well as horrific, this spawned two sequels in the '50s (RETURN OF THE FLY, CURSE OF THE FLY) before starting another cycle in the '80s, beginning with David Cronenberg's emotional remake.
