The Fly was a 1986 film directed by David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome) and starred Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day) as Seth Brundle, Geena Davis (Beetlejuice) as Veronica Quaife, and John Getz (Zodiac, The Fly II) as Stathis Borans.

This is honestly a fantastic score with Howard Shore’s memorable “Main Title,” and fans are sure to remember tracks like “Plasma Pool” and the emotional “The Last Visit.” Shore was a frequent collaborator with director Cronenberg and the two worked together on films like Scanners, Videodrome, and Dead Ringers, all of which helped lay down the foundation for his illustrious career and eventually lead him to major accomplishments like the The Lord of the Rings trilogy and its prequel film series, The Hobbit.
