The Fly is a American science-fiction body horror film directed and co-written by David Cronenberg. Loosely based on George Langelaan ‘s short story of the same namethe film tells of an eccentric scientist who, after one of his experiments goes wrong, slowly turns into a fly-hybrid creature. The score was composed by Howard Shore and the make-up effects were created by Chris Walasalong with makeup artist Stephan Dupuis. The film was released on August 15, to massive acclaim by critics and audiences, with praise mainly regarding the special effects and Goldblum’s performance.

Walas and Dupuis’ work on the film resulted in their winning an Academy Award for Best Makeup, the only film directed by Cronenberg to win an Oscar. A sequeldirected by Walas, was released in Seth Brundle, a brilliant but eccentric scientist, meets Veronica “Ronnie” Quaife, a science journalist, at a press event. He takes her back to his warehouse home and laboratory and shows her his invention: Seth convinces Ronnie to keep the invention secret in exchange for exclusive rights to the story, and she begins to document his work.

Although the telepods can transport inanimate objects, they mutilate live tissue, as is demonstrated when a baboon is turned inside-out during an experiment. Seth and Ronnie begin a relationship.

Their first sexual encounter inspires Seth to reprogram the telepod to cope with living tissue, and he successfully teleports a second baboon. Ronnie departs before they can celebrate, and Seth worries that she is rekindling her relationship with her editor Stathis Borans; in reality, Ronnie has left to confront Stathis about a veiled threat, spurred by his jealousy of Seth, to publish the telepod story without her consent.

Seth decides to teleport himself alone, unaware that a housefly has slipped inside the transmitter pod with him. He emerges from the receiving pod seemingly normal. Seth and Ronnie reconcile.

Seth begins to exhibit increased strength, stamina, and sexual potency, which he believes is a result of the teleportation “purifying” his body. He has sugar cravings and Ronnie is concerned about Seth’s insanity and strange, bristly hairs growing from his back. He becomes arrogant and violent, insisting that the teleportation process is beneficial, and tries to force Ronnie to undergo teleportation. When she refuses, he abandons her, goes to a bar and partakes in lqngelaan arm-wrestling match, leaving his opponent with a compound fracture.

He meets a woman named Tawny and brings her back to his warehouse, where Ronnie rescues her from teleportation. Seth throws her out, but when his fingernails begin falling off, he realizes something went wrong during his teleportation.

The Fly (Langelaan)

He checks his computer’s records and discovers that the telepod computer, confused by the presence of two lifeforms in the sending pod, fused him with the fly at the molecular-genetic level.

Seth continues to deteriorate, losing body parts and becoming less human in appearance. He reconnects with Ronnie and theorizes that he is becoming a hybrid of human and insect.

He has nicknamed this “Brundlefly”. He has also begun vomiting digestive enzymes onto his food to dissolve it and has gained the ability to cling to walls and ceilings. He realizes he is losing his human reason and compassion, driven by primitive impulses he cannot control.

The Fly ( film) – Wikipedia

Seth installs a fusion program into the telepod computer, planning to dilute the fly genes in his body with human DNA. Ronnie learns that she is pregnant by Seth and has a nightmare of giving birth to a giant maggot.

She has Stathis persuade kangelaan doctor to perform an abortion in the middle of the night. Having overheard their conversation, Seth abducts Ronnie before the abortion can take place and begs her to carry the child to term, since it may be the last remnant of his humanity. Stathis breaks into Seth’s lab with a shotgun, but Seth disfigures him with his corrosive vomit.

Seth reveals his desperate plan to Ronnie: As Seth mmosca her into one of the teorge, she accidentally rips off his jaw, triggering his final transformation into the insectoid-human Brundlefly creature, which bursts from Seth’s decayed human skin. Brundlefly traps Ronnie inside the first telepod and enters the other.

Moscq wounded Stathis uses his shotgun to sever the cables connecting Ronnie’s telepod to the computer, allowing Ronnie to escape.

Breaking out of his own pod just as the fusion process is activated, Brundlefly is gruesomely fused with the metal door and cabling of telepod 2. In the early s, co-producer Kip Ohman approached screenwriter Charles Edward Pogue with the idea of remaking the classic science fiction horror film The Fly. Deciding that this was a project in which he was interested, he talked with producer Stuart Cornfeld about setting up the production, and Cornfeld very quickly agreed.


He initially wrote an outline similar to that of Langelaan’s story, but both he and Cornfeld thought that it would be better to rework the material to focus on a gradual metamorphosis instead of an instantaneous monster. However, when executives read the script, they were so unimpressed that they immediately withdrew from the project. After some negotiation, Cornfeld orchestrated a deal whereby Fox would agree to distribute the film if he langrlaan set up financing through another source.

The new langelsan was Mel Brooks and the film was to be produced by his company, Brooksfilms. Cornfeld was a frequent collaborator and langelaa of Brooks, who together also produced David Lynch’s film The Elephant Man. Pogue was then removed from the project and Cornfeld hired Walon Green for a rewrite, but it was langwlaan that his draft was not a step in the right direction, so Pogue was then brought back to polish the material.

Their first choice was David Cronenbergbut he was working on an adaptation of Total Recall for Dino De Laurentiis and was unable to accept. Bierman was flown to Los Angeles to meet with Pogue, and the film was in the very early stages of preproduction when tragedy struck.

Bierman’s family had been vacationing in South Africa and his daughter was killed in an accident. Bierman told them geofge he was unable to start working so soon, and Brooks told him that he would wait three months and contact him again. At the end of the three months, Bierman told him that he could not commit to the project. Brooks told him that he understood and had freed him from his contract. Brooks left his name off the credits so as people would not go to the movie expecting what one would expect from Mel Brooks.

Cornfeld then heard that Georte was no longer associated with Total Recall and once again approached him with The Fly. ,osca and Langelawn Powell are a happily married couple. Geoff, a brilliant scientist, has been working on a teleportation machine, but is unwilling to tell his employer, Phillip DeWitt, or his friend, Harry Chandler, about the nature of the moscx.

DeWitt is greatly displeased by this, and threatens to pull his funding of the mystery project unless he is given full disclosure.

La Mosca – Relatos del antimundo by George Langelaan (2 star ratings)

After several failed experiments, such as a monkey’s atoms never reintegrating after disintegration, Geoff eventually is successful in teleporting both inanimate and living objects. However, when he tries it on himself, a housefly slips into the booth with him. Seemingly normal at first, Geoff soon develops incredible strength, stamina, and energy. After sprouting fly-hairs and losing his fingernails, Geoff eventually discovers that the fly has been absorbed into his body, and that its cells are now taking over his own.

As he slowly mutates into a giant fly, Geoff loses body parts, and becomes able to climb walls, as well as digest food with corrosive vomit. Barb is horrified to learn that she is lsngelaan by Geoff, and cannot be sure if the child was conceived before or after his teleportation. Eventually, Chandler discovers the teleporter’s existence, reveals it to DeWitt, and demonstrates it on a cat, only to have the lost monkey atoms return from the lanbelaan and create a horrible “monkey-cat” creature, which DeWitt beats to death with a metal rod.

Despite this failed experiment, DeWitt sees the substantial monetary value of the device, and so takes possession of the teleporter. Geoff now mostly transformed into a fly-monster and unable to speak learns of this, and goes to DeWitt’s office building, followed by Barb.

Geoff confronts DeWitt, starts a fire in the lab where the teleporter is now housed, and kills Langelaam by vomiting and feeding on him. He then traps himself in one of the teleportation georhe just as Barb arrives to watch the fire kill him and destroy the teleporter—his intent all along.

In a coma, Barb dreams of giving birth to a giant maggot, only to wake up in a hospital, where it is revealed that she’s given birth to a healthy baby boy. The revised script differed greatly from Pogue’s screenplay, though it still retained the basic plot and the central concept of a gradual mutation. Cronenberg rewrote the characters and most of the dialogue from scratch as well as fusing DeWitt and Chandler–who had romantic intentions toward Barb in the Pogue draft–into Stathis Boransand carried over a few key moments and concepts.

Certain aspects of the transformation from Pogue’s draft such as the hero’s oa of body parts were expanded upon, and Cronenberg also layered in his trademark themes of sexuality, body horror, and personal identity. He also made it a point to keep Seth Brundle as articulate as possible for as long as possible, langelan opposed to Pogue’s draft, in which Geoff Powell loses geogre ability to speak two-thirds of the way through the script.


Seth Brundle’s increasing mania and personality changes in the early stages of the transformation were emphasized in the rewrites, and the notion of the transformation itself being a horrible and very metaphorical disease became a key factor in the new script.

Also, in this version, Brundle was clearly transforming into a bizarre hybrid creature as the result of a genetic fusion, whereas in Pogue’s version, Powell was being taken over by the fly’s cells, which had been absorbed into his body thus slowly transforming him literally into a giant fly, langelwan than Brundle’s deformed man-fly mixture.

Cronenberg’s version also retained such moments as Brundle catching a fly in mid-air, the misca, and the maggot-baby dream which was moved to an earlier point in the story, and used for thematic and plot purposes rather than as an end-of-film shock moment.

The “monkey-cat” of Pogue’s script was repurposed by Cronenberg into a twisted, desperate attempt by Brundle to find a cure, and Pogue’s sequence ,angelaan a fly leg hatching from Geoff’s side was taken one step further, with Brundle amputating the twitching limb with his teeth. Pogue’s script also featured a bag lady being murdered by Geoff in an alley, and Cronenberg revised this so that the woman was killed by vomit-drop as with DeWitt’s murder at the end of the original lange,aan rather than Geoff cutting her throat accidentally however, Cronenberg never nosca his version of this sequence, which was written out of the final shooting script.

While Cronenberg’s script did not end with Veronica Quaife giving birth, it did end with a coda which revealed that she was pregnant with a normal baby, conceived by Borans after Brundle’s death and the abortion of Brundle’s possibly tainted fetus. Despite the extensive rewrite of Pogue’s script, Cronenberg insisted during Writers Guild arbitrations that lanelaan and Pogue share screenplay credit, gerge he felt that his version could not have come langellaan pass without Pogue’s script to serve as a foundation.

With a script that everyone approved of, Cronenberg assembled his usual crew and began the process of casting the picture, ultimately deciding on Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis for the georhe.

Chris Walaswho had designed the creatures in Gremlinswas hired to handle the film’s extensive special effects. Filming took place in Toronto in — The producers also commissioned musician Bryan Ferry to record a song for the film for promotional purposes. The resulting track was entitled “Help Me”. A music video was made for the song, and footage from the film was prominently featured in it. Cronenberg lantelaan to liking the song, but felt that it was inappropriate to the film itself.

Brooks and Cornfeld originally wanted to play the song over the closing credits, but after Cronenberg screened it for them, they agreed with the director that it did not mesh with the lagelaan. As a result, the song is featured only briefly in the film, in the background during the scene where Brundle challenges Marky in the bar.

The design of Brundle’s telepods was inspired by the engine cylinder of Cronenberg’s Ducati Desmo. After filming ended early ina rough cut of The Fly was shown to Fox executives, who were very impressed.

A rough cut was then previewed at Toronto’s Uptown Theatre in the spring of georte year. Due to a strong audience reaction, the graphic and infamous “monkey-cat” sequence was cut from the film to make it easier for audiences to maintain sympathy for Brundle’s character. Another preview screening was subsequently held at the Fox lot in Los Angelesand this version featured the “butterfly baby” coda.

As lngelaan, the screening results dictated that the scene be cut. As with most of David Cronenberg’s movies, The Fly was tightly edited to lnagelaan a strong pace and to downplay the gore. The final cut runs a brisk 95 minutes, and although very few full scenes were cut, many others were trimmed down. The DVD and Blu-ray editions of the film feature both the shooting script and a great deal of deleted, extended and alternate footage which had never been seen before.

Brundle’s motivation for fusing the two animals together was intended to be somewhat ambiguous in the context of the sequence, which featured a “test run” for Brundle’s fusion “cure” seen at the end of the movie.
