The almost-human son of "Brundlefly" searches for a cure to his mutated genes while being monitored by a nefarious corporation that wishes to continue his father's experiments.
When she was interviewed about the film, Daphne Zuniga said that Beth Logan gets stronger by what happens in the movie and changes by the end of the movie. Beth's character arc is similar to Sarah Connor's in The Terminator (1984). Linda Hamilton, who played Sarah Connor, was David Cronenberg's first choice to play Veronica Quaife in The Fly (1986), but Geena Davis was cast.
Veronica Quaife (on videotape):
Oh, my God! There's something wrong! I can feel it!
As young Martin is investigating Zone 4, the shot dwells on the handle and deadbolt of a door he is about to open. When it opens, you can see the deadbolt is a dummy; there is no actual bolt or latchplate.
The sound of flies buzzing is heard in the 20th Century Fox intro at the very beginning of the film.
Alternate Ending: On the 2-Disc version of the Fly II, there is a alternate ending on Disc 1, under the special features section. The scene takes place in the daytime on Beth Logan's houseboat. It shows her bringing some food to Martin, who's sitting down on the dock. She asks, "How do you feel?" He replies, "Much better." As he is saying this, the camera zooms in on his eyes. One eye is an almost blackish color, while the other one is green.
