Seth Brundle was a renowned scientist whose warped experiments with teleportation transformed him into a man/fly hybrid called BrundleFly. A few months after the BrundleFly insect met its demise by his lover's, Veronica, shotgun, she dies while giving birth to their son, Martin. Seth's corrupt employer, Bartok, adopts Martin, only so Martin can solve the new problems that the still-functioning TelePods present and to use him as a science project because of the dormant insect genes. Martin is now fully grown, even though he is five, and the fly genes begin to awaken and make him just like dear, dead dad. With the help of his girlfriend, Beth, they go to wherever they can find a possible cure before Bartok finds them and brings them back, but not before Martin finishes his transformation into MartinFly, the deadliest of the BrundleFly species.Written by
Steven-Charles Jaffe and Chris Walas were unsure about Daphne Zuniga in the role of Beth Logan, because they had not seen any of her work. But, when the actress came in and read the part, Jaffe and Walas thought she was fantastic and she was cast. See more »
When Martin leaps through the glass in Bay 17 in the film's climax. Beth doesn't scream and freak out over Martin's hideous and terrifying new form and is calm. Although she knows Martinfly is Martin because of the security guard reporting Martin's location to Bartok on the radio, surely Beth would really scream in horror and freak out over Martinfly.

In the end credits for The Fly (1986), CWI effects artist Guy Hudson used the pseudonym "Sir Guy of Hudson". For The Fly II (1989)'s credits, a "II" was added to the same pseudonym. See more »
A scene of Martin being heckled by children and vomiting corrosive enzymes on the windshield their car in response (during a stop for fast food on the way to Stathis Borans' home). The kids are little league players. They're terrified as the vomit creates a huge hole in the car. The little league coach angrily throws the food for the kids down in anger. This scene was filmed but deleted. See more »
This is a real sequel ! I watched this movie in 1993 on a sunday night and I really enjoyed!The leading couple (Eric Stoltz and the always beautifull Daphne Zuniga) is very atractive. I love the twist in the end cause I thought that the fly would die just like the first part of this movie. Of course I have a copy of this film that I keep very carefully. I must say that the bad comments right here don´t bother me because I know that the people are very jelous with the first part of The Fly and I don´t blame them.But this film is a jewell if you compare it with the trash that is made in this days.
