Overview

Fox's double-disc DVD pack of The Fly and The Fly 2 presents David Cronenberg's gruesome yet moving update of the '50s horror classic and Chris Walas' gooey sequel with a basic range of features. Both films include anamorphic, widescreen transfers and Dolby Digital 5.1 and Surround Sound -- all the better for showing off Walas' impressive makeup and animatronics in each movie (he won an Academy Award for his work on The Fly). Theatrical trailers for each of the films, the original Fly movies and similarly themed films like Fantastic Voyage and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea round out the discs. Though Walas' disappointing sequel is adequately represented by this rather spare package, The Fly deserves much better treatment; commentary, interviews, a "making of" featurette, or the footage Cronenberg deleted from the film would all go a long way toward presenting it properly. With any luck, Fox will release a separate special edition of The Fly with features like these; as it stands, the two-pack will probably frustrate as many Fly and Cronenberg fans as it pleases.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Time to bug out: The four Fly films are available for the first time on DVD in two double feature sets, setting horror fans abuzz at the promise of an in-home, insect cinema marathon. This set features director David Cronenberg's 1986 remake of The Fly starring Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. "Be afraid. Be very afraid" was its nightmarish tagline, and the warning was no joke. The same goes for the film's unique sequel The Fly 2, a continuation of the series that follows Eric Stoltz as Goldblum's son -- also a brilliant scientist but suddenly alerted to his own inevitable mutation. Both DVD double features are presented in anamorphic widescreen and include each film's original theatrical trailer.
