A brilliant but eccentric scientist begins to transform into a giant man/fly hybrid after one of his experiments goes horribly wrong.
What am I working on? Uhh... I'm working on something that will change the world, and human life as we know it.
Every time Seth or any other creature for that matter goes through the teleporter, they're completely naked so as to avoid confusing the computer and introducing more foreign materials. However, at the end of the movie, Brundlefly shoves Veronica into the telepod fully clothed. Whilst the resulting merge of DNA would be human, it would in fact create a worse mutation due to there now being a combination of human, fly and clothing material merged.
The background for the opening titles consists of an optically distorted, swirling mass of colors, which gradually transform into the opening shot of the film. This is a representation of how biologists believe a fly's vision would appear to a human.
A scene where Veronica interviews Brundle about his teleportation (the interview comes after his superhuman exercise sequence) was filmed, but deleted from the final cut. However, an edited version of this scene appears in form of the first videotape of Brundle in The Fly II (1989).
