Trivia

Director Edward Bernds has said that, contrary to rumors at the time, he was not hired to replace Kurt Neumann, who had directed the original The Fly (1958). Neumann had died in 1958, before this film began production, and before his death was not being considered by the producers for the director's job. See more »

Goofs

When Alan is about to run the detective's car into the lake, he first takes a rock and places it on the gas pedal of the car. During that scene, when he is leaning into the driver's side of the car, an arm reaches up for the steering wheel - obviously the stunt driver who was going to drive the "driverless" car. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Francois Delambre: [voice over] Here passes from this earth Helene Delambre, widow of my brother, Andre, whom I loved deeply, hopelessly. She was destroyed in the end by dreadful memories, a recollection of horrors that did not dim as the years went on, but instead grew monstrously, and left her mind shocked and unsteady, so that death, when it came, was a blessed release.

Cultish Follow-Up to the Horror Classic The Fly
15 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Return of the Fly suffers from comparison to the film it sequels. It feels like a B movie rather than an A-list production. Here, the heir to the Delambre fortune attempts to validate his dead father's work on the teleportation device. His involvement with a murderous swindler leads to a catastrophic transformation mirroring the tragedy of the first film. Vincent Price reprises his role as a concerned uncle trying to save the Delambre family from dangerous scientific experiments.The unconvincing creature design has a campy charm to it and overall The Return of the Fly can best be appreciated as a minor cult favorite. Followed by the slightly better Curse of the Fly.
