Not since I was a child and I stumbled upon the classic 1958 film, The Fly (late at night, while my parents were sleeping) have I been brave enough to rewatch it. Now as news of the film’s Blu-ray release comes out for this fall, I think I can muster the courage. Here are details of the release.
When a scientist (David 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.
