Ep. 03-11: The Fly (1958 & 1986)

Both the 1956 and 1986 versions of The Fly tell the story of a scientist transformed into a grotesque creature after a common housefly enters unseen into a molecular transporter he is experimenting with, resulting in his atoms being combined with those of the insect and producing a hybrid creature. Both films feature brilliant, obsessed, tragic scientists literally in the right place at the wrong time. And like the aforementioned creature, both films are hybrids too… combining strong tropes from both sci-fi and horror.

Episode 03-11 THE FLY(S)

Welcome to our second double feature this season. And this one is a winner, folks—BOTH films deserve their spot in the hallowed halls of the horror/sci-fi canon. Join us as we discuss their casts, the variations in the story, and what key elements lift both films up solidly on their own. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys enters the lab of a formerly sane and reputable scientist, only to find a chamber of horrors released from the proposed advancement of humanity.

The Fly (1986) Directed by David Cronenberg Shown: Jeff Goldblum (as Seth Brundle)
