The Fly

Teleportation is very unlikely to ever happen, but the idea of contamination is excellent that is explored in these two films.

The original 1958 and the remake in 1986 were, without doubt, the best, here for your Sci-Fi collections...

THE FLY (1958)

A scientist (David Hedison) is obsessed with developing a molecular matter transmitter. When he attempts to test the invention himself, he is unwittingly joined by a companion - a fly that has sneaked into the transportation pod with him. The consequences of the experiment soon become clear, as the scientist begins to take on fly-like characteristics.

THE FLY (1986)

Cult horror director David Cronenberg found mainstream success with this remake of the 1958 horror classic and Chris Walas and Stephan Dupuis won an Oscar for their make-up effects. Scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum), experimenting with transmitting matter uses himself as a guinea-pig, unaware that a fly has got into the machinery. As he embarks on a relationship with Veronica Quaife (Geena Davis), the journalist covering his project, his body slowly begins to take on fly-like characteristics.
