Fifteen years after his father's experiments with matter transmission fail, Philippe Delambre and his uncle François attempt to create a matter transmission device on their own. However, their experiments have disastrous results, turning Philippe into a horrible half-man, half-fly creature.Written by

Although Philippe has received not only the fly's head in the transfer, but also a claw replacing both his left hand and right foot, the fly reveals only Philippe's head, but still has the rest of his various appendages apparently intact and functioning. 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.

For UK cinemas, the BBFC imposed a brief cut to remove the shot of Alan crushing the hybrid guinea pig with his foot. Later video releases were uncut. See more »
It's not as howlingly bad as Plan Nine From Outer SPace but there are plenty of laugh inducing effects to sing your fly claws into but what do expect from a teensy budget and a director that was used to doing The Three Stooges Episodes with Shemp.Most of the cast strives for dignity in the face of a script that was hurriedly written and probably uncared for even though you do get the standard over the top moments that were in just about every 50's sci-fi. The effects are legendarily bad and many folks(myself included) have a fondness for them. Where else are you going to see a guinea pig with tiny human appendages? Glen Danzig of Misfits fame even writes about it in a song Return Of The Fly. "Return Of The Fly,with Vincent Price.You guinea pig,Return of the Fly,human hands and feet,Return of the fly." It's a lot of fun and one of my Saturday night TV chiller show faves as a kid.
