Abstract:

The fly (1958 : 94 minutes : color). Experimental scientist Andre Delambre attempts to transfer matter through space, using himself as the test subject. But things go horrifically wrong when a common housefly buzzes into the machine, resulting in two grotesque man-fly hybrids. Now, with the head of a fly and a wing in place of one of his arms, Andre desperately hopes that he, his wife Helene and his brother Francois can capture the other mutant - the human-headed, one-armed fly - in hopes of reversing the experiment. Special feature: Audio commentary with actor David (Al) Hedison.

Return of the fly (1959 : 80 minutes : black & white). Despite warnings from his uncle Francois, young scientist Philippe Delambre is determined to reattempt his late father's teleportation experiments with the help of his assisstant Ronald. But Ronald schemes against Philippe and turns him into the same horrifying man-fly creature that his father had become. Once again, it is up to Francois to try and make things right again.

The curse of the fly (1965 : 86 minutes : black & white). After escaping from a mental institution, Patricia Stanley is rescued by scientist Martin Delambre, the grandson of the doomed teleportation experimenter Andre Delambre. The two fall in love and marry, but Patricia quickly realizes her new husband's science experiments are as horrific as his family's past. As she investigates further, Patricia learns the unnerving secrets of the Delambre family and has to find a way to escape them before she becomed the next human-fly hybrid.

The Fly collection disc of horrors: Delve further into the creepy underbellies of "The fly," "The return of the fly" and "The curse of the fly." Filled with tantalizing bits of information about the creation of the Fly's mutant monster mythos, including the award-winning 1957 novella by George Lagerlaan; a featurette about the tower of talent known as Vincent Price ("Fly trap: catching a classic"); 1997 Vincent Price interview originally broadcast on A & E Network's Biography; stills galleries; pressbook; posters. This compendium of Fly features is an invaluable way to alight on the subject.
