Greg is a young genius who has created a wireless robot drone in the form of a fly: tiny, stealthy and powerful.

Greg, however, also has a dark side: he’s using it to spy on his ex-girlfriend Haley. With a virtual reality headset, Greg can see everything that the fly sees, and he often flies it into his ex’s house and spies on her and her current boyfriend — as well as their most intimate moments.

But when Greg is discovered and uncovers the nature of Haley’s new relationship, he has a chance once again to get close to Haley and extricate her from her boyfriend forever.

Directed by Daniel M. Smith, written by Simon Hewitt and produced by Kyran Speirs and Andrew Ornitharis of Flat Cap Films, this dark psychological thriller takes viewers on a compelling ride as propulsive, unexpected and twisting as the flight path of the drone fly itself.

Every element of craft is sculpted and hewn with an eye for style and suspense, whether it’s in the dynamic camera movements and effects or the excellently structured and paced writing and editing. Like the best thrillers, the storytelling manages the trick of drawing in viewers with tension and keeping them invested in what happens next.

While sometimes character building can be sacrificed in the name of plot in most thrillers, excellent performances all around capture the dark, often twisted motives of this cast of dark, lonely souls. Actor Lewis Rainer details Greg as a withdrawn young man fixated on his ex, with equal parts vulnerable, palpable longing and arrogance. He may have remarkable prowess with technology and science, but his social intelligence lags.

And as Haley, actor Ophelia Lovibond has an initially difficult task of playing the love object, but has the flinty intelligence and inner strength to make audiences understand why she’s so compelling to Greg — as well as carry off the film’s final and most engaging twist, which takes one of the most regressive cliches of the genre and turns it on its head.

“Flyspy” isn’t afraid to be smart, entertaining, propulsive and what Brits often call “a nasty bit of fun.” But it also asks fascinating questions about the growing role of drone, virtual reality and surveillance technology in our lives, using those concerns as a central key element in its plot and how the characters move towards their goals. In doing so, the story also illuminates just how powerful this technology can be, especially when used in service of the darker human impulses.

The truth is, Greg’s use of these already existing technologies isn’t such a far stretch into everyday reality. And after viewers have digested the rollercoaster of a plot and enjoyed its wild flight, they may just keep mulling over the real-life implications — and perhaps never look at a bug in the house in the same way again.

    My brain somehow blocked out the word Omeleto on the thumbnail and I thought this was going to be a documentary about tiny robots.

    If you put ‘em on a pedestal they’ll always be looking down on you.

  22. mharz mhason on November 21, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    Lesson of the story:
    Put some self destruct mode in your spy object to avoid conflict.
    Just like your incognito mode in your browser.

  26. Stormy States on November 21, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    When she asked what are u building he should’ve said, “well last time I built a fly… now I’m building a murder hornet.”

  27. SWAT KIDSS on November 21, 2020 at 9:22 pm

    The sweetest smiles hold the darkest secrets…nobody’s ever been arrested for a murder; they have only ever been arrested for not planning it properly.
    that’s a genius work from Omeloto house! seems the movie was driven by the above quotes 😉 late to the party, however, didn’t miss it 🙂

  28. Matheus Oliveira on November 21, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    Black mirror

  36. Lucian on November 21, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Not to be the guy that ruins the fun but this is impossiblw to pull off. The camera would need to be so tiny it wpuld just have at max a 240p resolution. The cpu and power supply would need to be twce the size of the fly to even allow a few mhz at most

  37. Michael Trevor Jamnague on November 21, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Flyspy nice name

    So she got beat up, went to ex’s house and got laid, then turned on him and turned him in? Maybe I’m missing something but that’s kind of messed up. If I got it wrong please enlighten me. Pretty awesome piece of work just not sure I got it all.
