The Fly can refer to various works:

These films provide examples of the following:

  • Body Horror: Across all incarnations it's the story of a man who becomes a fly, or something like it.
  • Merging Machine: All involve a scientist getting merged with a fly - half and half in the original (though the 1958 has both the head and left arm of the scientist and fly get reversed - the sequel Curse of the Fly has the iconic "man with fly head and vice-versa"), wholesome in 1986.
  • Science Is Bad
