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 »
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 »
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.

Nice black & white follow-up to the colorful 1958's original. Philippe Delambre decides to continue his father's work, at the disapproval of his uncle François (an ever so great Vincent Price, reprising his role from the first film, this time having a lot more screen time). Inevitably, things go wrong again, but not the way one might expect they would. Actually, the subplot about betrayal and revenge is the one that drives this film and keeps it all interesting. And if you want to know what comes out of the second tele-pod when you throw a human and a hamster together in the first, then all you have to do is watch this sequel to know the answer. Decent classic horror entertainment. And a damn decent sequel to boot.
