"A brilliant but eccentric scientist begins to transform into a giant man/fly hybrid after one of his experiments goes horribly wrong."
Another succinct plot description from IMDb, this 1986 remake of a 1958 film of the same name is an intensely visceral (characteristic of films directed by Cronenberg) movie that exploits the sci-fi trope of the mad scientist to explore some strikingly relevant material surrounding the politics of the body, and the body politic, much like last week's Pressure Point, through very different aesthetic, and narrative means.
An apt quote to keep an eye out for:
"Have you ever heard of insect politics? Neither have I. Insects don’t have politics, they are very brutal, no compassion, no compromise, we can’t trust the insect. I’d like to become the first insect politician. I’d like to, but I’m afraid."
Sex scenes (no full nudity) gore, depiction of animal cruelty, a dramatized abortion scene, discussions of abortion, stalking, sexism, ableism, more gore.
