Obsessed scientist Andre Delambre invents a matter transmitter with horrifying repercussions. Though he has had varying degrees of success with the device, he decides to use himself in a human project to test the machine. When a fly accidentally enters the chamber at the time of the experiment, the scientist reemerges a hybrid – half-man, half-fly!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Deliciouly funny to some and eerily presicient to others, The Fly walks a fine line between shlocky fun and unnerving nature parable.
Variety Staff

One strong factor of the picture is its unusual believability.

Clavell's script successfully treads a fine line between black comedy and po-faced seriousness.

New York Times
Howard Thompson

One of the better, more restrained entries of the 'shock' school.
