Description by OLDIES.com:

A brilliant scientist becomes obsessed with perfecting a device that can transmit matter from one location to another. Successful in his initial tests, he experiments with a human guinea pig - himself. But an ordinary housefly makes the journey with him, and when they emerge, both creatures have been extraordinarily changed. This is the chilling story of a man fighting to retain his humanity, and a desperate woman's attempt to save the man she loves.

The boundaries of science are pushed to their eerie limits in this sequel to the classic, ever-popular "The Fly." Here Philippe, the son of the ill-fated scientist, naively continues his father's misguided experiments. The victim of his traitorous assistant's greedy ambitions. Philippe finds himself in a terrifying limbo - he's grown the head and limbs of a fly! Taking spectacular revenge on his betrayers, Philippe must also race against time and find a way to reverse the horrifying mutation.

Product Description:

Includes both of the classic FLY movies. In the original THE FLY, a scientist experimenting with teleportation accidentally exchanges his head with that of a housefly. in RETURN OF THE FLY the scientist's son, years later, replicates his father's experiments a little too closely. A pair of sci-fi/ horror classics that spawned a remake in the 1980s.

Plot Synopsis:

"The Fly [1958]": A classic science-fiction/horror film about a scientist's two "teleport" machines, one of which dissolves atoms, while the other reconstructs them. When the scientist unwittingly shares the machine with a common fly, he turns into a hideous hybrid of man and insect -- and begins to exhibit the characteristics of a housefly. The scientist wants to reverse the process, but first he must catch that fly...
"The Return of the Fly": Sequel to 1958's "The Fly." Here, the son of the man who invented the "teleport" machines continues his father's endeavors to perfect them. But just like his dad, the young man shares the contraption with a common housefly, and is transformed into the same insect/man hybrid as his father. But will the son, unlike the father, succeed in reversing the process'

Rating 4.0 You don't want this coming through the open window! Movie Lover: from Sunny Isles Beach, FL US -- November, 5, 2005

Although not having the creepier special effects and make-up of the newer Jeff Goldblum flicks, Vincent Price does his usual excellent acting in these original classics. These are Canadian-produced and, as science fiction, come across credible and well. And there is a bit of dark tongue-in-cheek humor over some of the outcomes of Price's ongoing matter-transportation experiments. Break out the microwave popcorn and enjoy!
