Trivia

The producers decided that Vincent Price was all they needed, so they hired no other actors from the first movie. Filming was completed in March 1959 for July release. See more »

Goofs

When Francois and Philippe visit Andre's laboratory from the first film, the messages Andre wrote on the blackboard can still be seen. But at the end of the first film, Helene had told Inspector Charas she had rubbed them off the board to cover up Andre's experiment. 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.

Was very lacking on the whole for me, but has its good points
9 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I quite enjoyed The Fly, it had a creepy atmosphere and was well performed. Return of the Fly I wouldn't say was a terrible film but at the same time it was somewhat lacking. It certainly has redeeming values, the Guinea Pig moment is by far the most effective scene of the film and the lighting and sets are suitably haunting. Brett Halsey is very good, but I found Vincent Price to be the best asset. His role is bigger than in The Fly, which is always a treat for fans of his, and again he brings his natural charisma and distinctive voice to proceedings. Sadly, the camera work is awkward and the effects especially Halsey's make-up and "fly-head" are noticeably fake. The script is of cheesy quality, sometimes hilariously, often uncomfortably and the story is mostly too rushed with no real sense of terror or creepiness. All in all, a lacking sequel but not one of the worst. 4/10 Bethany Cox
