Remember that scientist that was trying to perfect a matter transportation machine but got fused with a fly when one of the little critters got into the transporter with him? Well, this story is about three of his descendents (a son, Henri Delambre, played by Brian Donlevy and two grandsons). Seems the son wants to continue and perfect the machine while his two sons want to get out of the scientist business and live "normal" lives. The oldest son, Martin, decides to take a wife (who just happens to have escaped from a mental hospital after her parents died). Martin's father is not happy with this intrusion but finally gives in because he understands him son's needs. They all try to be a happy family until humans used in botched experiments are discovered by the new bride and the police nearly discover the lab while looking for Martin's wife. Everyone tries to get out of there via the transporter but things just don't go according to plan ... Written by

Low budget, grade B second sequel to the "classic" Vincent Price horror film with the half-man, half-fly trapped in a web crying for help.
Might be lumped in with all the other stale, stodgy, campy horror flicks of that era, but "Curse of the Fly" has the distinction in my family of being the only film I can truly say startled me with one single, solitary, particular scene; when the young woman was looking in the locked cells outside where the failed experiments were kept and she opened the little door where food is put in and slowly she bends over to see what is inside, .. . .
The falling door before she looked within startled me to such a point I leapt into the air when I first viewed it. I told my brother and he had just watched it earlier and said the same thing. Our older sister said the same thing happened to her when she watched it.
And we were all well out of high school when we watched this film for the first time.
No other movie has had such a startling moment as that scene in this movie.
