The Fly (1958)
Director: Kurt Neumann
Main Stars: Vincent Price, David Hedison, Patricia Owens
Storyline: A scientist has a accident in which when creating a teleportation device a fly got trapped in the device with him splitting their atoms.
Review (Spoils): Andre Delambre (David Hedison) is a mad sciensit that puts his work before his wife and child. He creates a teleportation device and it goes wrong when a fly flies into his portal when he was transferring. This splits the atoms with himself and a fly. Part of him is with the fly and part of the fly is with him. This wife Helene (Patricia Owens) tries to help him even though she knows Andre’s brother Francois (Vincent Price) loves her too. This leads to her heartbreak as it cannot be fixed and she has to end his life. This brings the film to the fold where she retells the story for her innocence which leads to the whole film. The hunt for the fly with the white head and legs is the remaining piece as it is needed so that they both can go back through and maybe it will split the atoms back to normal.
The climax of the film is when Helene discovers the head of her hidden husband as an actual fly and how it is starting to overtake his mind. The second best part is the “Help me, help me!” part where his other half is trapped in a web and is put to death.
Rating: This classic sci-fi horror film, the movie was totally entertaining and the story was well written. All three main stars took the stage for this one and it all worked out. This is a must see for any horror fan of the classic monster era. 3 Cheers for the Fly!
