ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents The Fly (1986). In this re-make of the 1950s classic sci-fi story, director David Cronenberg adds his distinct touch to the story of a nerdy scientist with an experiment that goes all wrong. Trying to woo a pretty journalist (Geena Davis), Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) shows off his latest scientific findings a bit too soon. Having successfully teleported a small animal, Brundle decides to test the machine on himself. A small fly, however, enters the chamber with him, and before it's over the bookish scientist has been transformed into a fly-human hybrid, changing his life forever. This occasionally gory but visually stunning re-telling showcases Cronenberg's work at its peak and is one of the most important films of the 1980s.
