BZZZZT!

A swarm of Flies

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Time machine -

While a lot of peo­ple re­mem­ber the campy 1958 movie, in fact the orig­i­nal ver­sion of The Fly was a 1957 short story, which ap­peared in Playboy magazine, writ­ten by Ge­orge Lan­ge­laan. Other sub­se­quent adap­ta­tions in­clude 1959’s Re­turn Of The Fly, 1965’s Curse Of The Fly, 1989’s Cro­nen­berg se­quel (mi­nus Cro­nen­berg, Gold­blum and Davis) The Fly II, and even a 2008 opera by Howard Shore, based on the 1986 movie for which he com­posed the score. At var­i­ous points there has been talk of a new se­quel be­ing made, al­though noth­ing has yet been con­firmed.
