The Fly (1986)

4 / 5

This is actually a very effective remake which actually does slightly surpass the original. We have a scientist with a teleportation device which of course is tainted with a fly which transforms him into the tragic flyman. It's of course all about trying to reverse the effects and all the challenges faced and whatnot, but it's a great tale and it's told with definite flair. The effects are quite decent and the actual story is the seller here, there isn't a ton of gore or anything in the typical horror sort of way, but it's still a fun little piece made even better with some money thrown behind it this time around.
