This David Cronenberg-directed version of The Fly stars Jeff Goldblum as Seth Brundle, the hapless scientist whose experimentation with teleportation mutates him into a grotesque fly-like creature. Geena Davis is Veronica Quaife, an intrepid journalist who fell in love with science-boy while covering his research, goes above and way beyond the call of girlfriend duty as she stands by her, um, man.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits good quality. Images are sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered background definition. Colors are mostly balanced, though fleshtones can appear a bit orange at times. The film has a dark, dingy character that seems appropriate for the content. Some dirt and artifacts are apparent, but nothing too distracting.
