Dr Seth Brundle was a brilliant scientist, but one day his experiments with teleportation went dreadfully wrong and led the horrific mutation of man and insect - The Brundlefly. Now, deep within the bowels of Bartok industries, a team of scientists is studying a small boy. But Martin is no ordinary child, for he is the son of Dr Seth Brundle - he is the son of Brundlefly. As Martins insect metabolism accelerates his growth and intelligence to beyond that of a mere human, he remains unaware of the terrible fate that awaits him and devotes his life to solving the mysteries of his father's teleportation device. But the nightmare begins again when Martin's insect blood takes complete control, and he is gradual metamorphosed into a grotesque mutant, more powerful and more deadly than even his father before him, and determined to destroy all those who deceived him.

A fascinating look at the cinematic genius of Alfred Hitchcock. Briefly covering much of his early British works, the film primarily focuses on his American classics, such as Shadow of a Doubt, Notorious, Rear Window, Vertigo, Psycho and The Birds. The movie also covers his television years and neatly examines the Hitchcock signature touches, from his inevitable brief cameo to his famous MacGuffin. Kevin Spacey narrates, and there are interviews with his delightful daughter Pat as well as such film directors as Brian De Palma, Jonathan Demme, Curtis Hanson, Robert Altman, Ronald Neame and Peter Bogdanovich, along with cast and crew members Tippi Hedren, Joseph Stefano, Norman Lloyd, Robert F. Boyle, Teresa Wright and Janet Leigh.
