Has Lord of the Flies influenced anything contemporarily? (i.e. movies, books, poetry, television) Have you seen allegory's of Lord of the Flies anywhere?

I don't know if it's just me, but does anyone see Lost as a more complex "adult version" of Lord of the Flies?

EW wrote a list of the books you HAVE to read that played a huge influence on Lost. Lord of the Flies was one of them, so I have to pat myself on the back for the comment I made above. =)
