Title: The Fly
Director: Olly Williams
Length: 6 min 24 sec
The Fly is director Olly Williams (not be confused with Family Guy’s Ollie Williams) attempt at fusing Reservoir Dogs with Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven as a protagonist is driven mad by a hellish insect.
Reminiscent of the Breaking Bad episode Fly, The Fly is maddening, violent and also funny at times with Jack Doolan giving an intense performance miles away from his turn as tubby loser Snork in Cemetery Junction.
The final sequence is a fitting end to a continual build up of tension and whilst The Fly is not hugely original, it is at least executed very well and makes for a great ‘what if’ scenario.
