This review is from: The Fly: Ultimate Collectors' Edition Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
The Fly films get a fantastic dvd workout on this, The Fly Ultimate Collector's Edition. The boxset is quite big and houses a plastic replica of one of the telepods from the 1986 movie. Open it, and you will find all seven discs, covering the original trilogy strating with The Fly(1957), Return of the Fly and Curse of the Fly. Then, you've got the two disc collector's editions of The Fly(1986) and it's lesser known sequel The Fly II.
One thing that I've heard people complaining about is the lack of special features on the original films. This is not true. Go onto The Fly II bonus disc and you will find a documentary entitled 'The Fly Papers:The Buzz on Hollywood's scariest insect'. This documentary cover a lot of material about the original films.
The Fly(1986) is a modern classic and belongs in everyone's dvd collection. It's making of entitled 'Fear of the Flesh' is astounding and warrants a watch. The Fly II isn't quite as an effective movie as it's predecessor, but is still a very entertaining horror film. It also gets a fantastic dvd workout. The original films are dated, but the original Fly is still worth a watch. The Fly Ultimate Collector's Edition is an excellent DVD and is a requisite addition to any dvd collection.
