He does and they find the mangled remains of his brother in the family factory, his head and arm crushed under a hydraulic machine press. Later that evening, he hears Henri mention something about a fly with a funny white head. She relents and advises him to come back the next day, at which time he will receive his explanation.

The next day she gives him a handwritten manuscript, and later that night he reads it. He had two such machines in his basement, one being used as a transmitter pod, the other as a receiver. He also tried transmitting the family cat, which disintegrated perfectly but then never reappeared. Eventually, however, he ironed out the mistakes and found that the invention worked perfectly. Unbeknownst to him, a tiny housefly had entered the transmitter pod with him, and when he emerged from the receiver, his head and arm had been switched with that of the insect.

Not believing it will work, but wanting to humor her, he agrees and goes through. Not only is his head now that of a fly, but some of the missing particles from the family cat were also mixed in with his scrambled anatomy during the last experiment. Unable to live with her memories, she committed suicide by cyanide during the night.

It was a fly with a white head. Reception[ edit ] The Jungian analyst Marie-Louise von Franz discusses the story in her lectures on "The Inferior Function", an aspect of the theory of psychological types.

She describes it as an "example of inferior introverted intuition" that "illustrates the disgusting form and desperate abyss into which the inferior function can lead.

Since the story is written by a sensation type, it gets disguised as completely practical sensation. The fly would represent inferior intuition, which gets mixed up with the conscious personality.

A fly is a devilish insect. Here, this scientist gets caught and victimized by an idea that involves murder and madness. One sees that he would represent collective common sense — the verdict finally adopted by the writer, who admits that all this is just madness. If the writer had established the continuity of his inferior function, and had freed it from his extroverted sensation, then a really pure and clean story would have come out.

In genuine fantasies, such as those of Edgar Allan Poe and the poet Gustav Meyrinck, intuition is established in its own right. These fantasies are highly symbolic and can be interpreted in a symbolic way.

But a sensation type always wants to concretize his intuitions in some way. Return of the Fly is a film which is the first sequel to the film. The Fly II is the sequel to the film. A recurring gag in the film is that the Fly would spit in his hands and rub it as he tells those following his exercise moves not to do that. Bart becomes a fly. The cartoon "Animaniacs" frequently made pop culture references to music and film as the Looney Tunes who preceded them did, one of which was the popular Geena Davis catchphrase, "Be afraid, be very afraid," from the remake.

His natural propensity for travel eventually brought Langel aan to the USA, where he worked for many years before returning to Paris. While in the States, he became a member of a circle of literary figures, including Terry Southern, who were selling work to the then prestigious and hi gh-payi ng Playboy magazi ne. Eventually Playboy took several pieces from the literate, sophisticated Langel aan; including what would become his most celebrated tale, "The Fly. The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction cited it as "one of the most noted recent weird-horror stories" and it was immediately selected for reprinting in The Best SF Just why this unsettling tale, which the Science Fiction Encyclopedia rightly called "a macabre story of an unsuccessful experiment in matter transmission" should have proved so popular is difficult to understand. Perhaps because the author had the good sense to take his narrative out of the laboratory, where previous science fiction writers had placed it, and into the drawi ng room, where it affected real people. Whatever the explanation, "The Fly" touched a universal enough nerve to have stimulated the creation of not one, but two movie versions , filmed almost thirty years apart, while each in turn produced its own lineage of sequels.
