The poster was printed by BKKM, the printing house of Kecskemet. The cinema in Kecskemet had its own printing house where they produced their own designs for movies. In most cases the designers are unknown since the majority of these works is unsigned. BKKM started at the end of the 1970s, early 1980s when many movies became available in Hungary which were banned before due to censorship. All of these posters were printed in A2 size. Most of the posters by BKKM are somewhat alike considering the composition. They usually consist of two or three characteristic colours and are made with photomontage technique. These pieces mostly present a scene or a character of the movie.

The Fly is about a brilliant but eccentric scientist begins to transform into a giant man/fly hybrid after one of his experiments goes horribly wrong. (source:
