Product Description

When a scientist (David Al Hedison) attempts to transfer matter through space, things go horrifically wrong and two grotesque man-fly hybrids are created. Now, with the head of a fly and a wing in place of one of his arms, the scientist desperately hopes that he, his wife (Patricia Owens) and his brother (Vincent Price) can capture the other mutant and reverse the experiment.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fly Blu Ray! 24 Sep 2013
By Adrian Drew TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
"The Fly" still works quite well and has surprisingly high production values for a 1958 film of this genre even including a ballet sequence in it's attempt to evoke the cultural life of Paris: as the film - true to the short story on which it's based - takes place in France.

Strongly cast with David (Al) Hedison, Patricia Owens, Herbert Marshall and Vincent Price in the leads, and some well/known faces as support players ( the maid, the nightwatchman in the factory, even a member of the audience sharing the box at the opera) what could frankly have been a totally ludicrous story, comes across with some - if limited - conviction - although film historians tell us that Price and Marshall went into paroxysms of hysteria when filming the ending which required countless takes before the cast could control themselves!

For over 35 minutes of its short running time, the film seems very much a standard murder mystery which only gradually reveals the sic-fi/horror at its core. Marshall, as ever, gives a thoroughly convincing performance as the sceptical detective and Hedison who went on to star in the series "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" gives a committed and naturalistic portrayal of the scientist victim, insisting that he wore the fly mask throughout all sequences when his character was on screen - even when covered with a black head cloth! Price and Owens however are never totally convincing as his brother and wife and Price's campness and Owens melodramatics will be definitely a plus or minus quality depending on the tastes of viewers.

The new Blu-ray comes in a solid transfer on this 50GB disc. The original elegant CinemaScope 2.35:1 ratio is thankfully
retained and there is little evidence of DNR or "sharpening".

5.0 out of 5 stars Flying Tonight! 28 Nov 2013
By John B
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a much better film than the newer version with Jeff Goldlum and the picture quality is excellent for a film of this vintage. The extras are reasonable and have a trailer of Return of the Fly which amazingly is in Black and White!

I saw this original version many years ago and it has not been televised since. I would have recorded on VHS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anything but cheesy 7 July 2012
Format:DVD
This classic science-fiction thriller from 1958 starring the king of horror Vincent Price has been misunderstood by many film critics around the world. Most people only like the 1986 remake starring Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. That was also a great movie but it wasn't even near as good as the original. Most people think that the original is cheesy, not knowing how good it really is. The original is an entertaining, suspenseful, and well written film. And the remake is an entertaining gorefest with great acting by Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum. Also, the original has one of the greatest movie endings of all time, which I'm not going to spoil for you. Vincent Price is great, as always, but he's not the only one who's great in this. The whole cast is excellent. The final unmasking scene is spectacular. That's the only thing I think is better in the remake than in the original: the special effects. Of course, the remake is from the 80's and the original is from the 50's. They didn't have those effects back then. But even if the original isn't filled with blood and gore, it's a classic that gets better with age.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREATS IN SCI-FI 16 July 2013
By Peter M
Format:Blu-ray
I was still a child when I first saw this film and have watched in numerous times over the past 50 years.It is great that it is finally coming to bluray.This film terrified audiences on its original release. The amazing finale was the most talked about scene of its day for a horror/sci-fi film.The two sequels were disappointing and the remake was nothing like the original.It is truly a classic.See it at all costs.
