The Fly burgers, onions & a kiwi drink

The Fly burgers, onions & a kiwi drink

Let’s be honest, we all know most remakes should never have been made, but THE FLY is one of those rare exceptions. Sure the original with Vincent Price was kind of cool for the time, but Jeff Goldblum mastered the art of disgusting his audience in the 1986 remake. There weren’t any little human headed flies yelling “Help me!”, but instead David Cronenberg’s version brought us nail splitting, put-some-hair-on-your-chest type of quality gore. THE FLY has scenes in it that will forever be embedded in our minds and that’s what we call a good movie. Now it’s our job to up the ante on your movie viewing experience, so we’re bringing you these fly inspired dishes.
