The Fly is a 1986 American science fiction horror film co-written and directed by David Cronenberg. Produced by Brooksfilms and distributed by 20th Century Fox, the film stars Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis and John Getz. It is based loosely on George Langelaan's 1957 short story "The Fly", which also formed the basis for the 1958 film The Fly. Some critics saw the film as a metaphor for the AIDS epidemic. The score was composed by Howard Shore and the make-up effects were created by Chris Walas, who, along with makeup artist Stephan Dupuis won the Academy Award for Best Makeup. The story is about a brilliant but eccentric scientist, who begins to transform into a giant man/fly hybrid after one of his experiments goes horribly wrong. (source:,
