The scores to The Fly and Return of the Fly were written by the team of Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter. Beginning with just the kind of bombastic and memorable music you'd want for a movie called The Fly, Sawtell and Shefter immediately introduce the theme for the happy couple at the film's center, and it establishes immediately the human element of the story, which is so important for any sci-fi or horror film. From there it's classic Sawtell and Shefter, with the scary music and the human music balancing out each other and creating a symphony of terror and things gone wrong, all in that unbelievably great Fox stereo sound. It's one of the great sci-fi/horror scores. Return of the Fly is equally strong as a score and it's not just a rehash of the first score, which is refreshing.
The Fly and Return of the Fly were both previously released in a box set on Percepto Records (which also contained Curse of the Fly, composed by Shefter alone), which has been long out of print and hard to find. For this reissue, we decided to just present the first two films, since they were made only a year apart and were both composed by Sawtell and Shefter. We've done some cleanup work and remastered the sound, combined a couple of shorter cues and removed the "Fox Fanfare" since it obviously wasn't composed by Sawtell and Shefter. Both scores are completeThe Fly in glorious stereo, and the low budget Return of the Fly in glorious mono. So, turn off the lights and bask in the eerie glow of two classic sci-fi/horror scores by the great team of Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter.
The Fly / Return of the Fly is limited to 1000 copies only.
