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.

Enjoyably Cheezy
9 April 2007 | by michaeldukey2000See all my reviews

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.
