  1. Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film The Fly

    Still as terrifying as when it was released

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Fly

    Goes a little deeper psychologically than what is usual for this type of "monster film" - especially from the 1950s. A memorable, creepy but also absurd ending has made the film famous but the film should also be applauded for it's dry humor and likable characters. It is also nice that one didn't decide to overuse the monstrous fly-makeup but keeps him mostly hidden under blankets.

  3. DenoResandono's rating of the film The Fly

    THE FLY is an intriguing movie. It doesn't feel rush to show the monster. Director Kurt Neumann wants us to getting along with its characters. So we can feel sympathy to them. The great thing about THE FLY is the plot was told in flashback. If THE FLY had been told in linear plot it would be mediocre. Special effects maybe looks dated. But the cinematography feels haunting. Honestly I still prefer the 1986 version...

  4. sissy69's rating of the film The Fly

    Oo, what a lovely romance! and what beautiful costumes on miss Hélène. . . But kinna freaky for my liking. . .

  5. João R's rating of the film The Fly

    Even though I couldn't take the plot seriously, I can't say that this wasn't enjoyable - mainly due to its brilliant presentation.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film The Fly

    Hormis une fin plutôt moyenne, voire passable, tirée par... les toiles d'araignées, une oeuvre inoubliable qui reste un classique du film fantastique...

  7. Alice dos Reis's rating of the film The Fly

  8. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Fly

    You know you're through the looking glass when Vincent Price is the guy you need to call for help. The special effects may have dated, and the pacing may now seem "off" because everyone already knows the general plot, so there's no longer a real mystery. But the original Fly retains a fascinating power because it's still so conceptually creepy, teasing the audience and climaxing on a note no arachnophobe can stand.

  9. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The Fly

    The true terror of reality as bent to human will. Beautiful colors, nauseating use of sound design and incidental music. A classic.

  10. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Fly

    2-3. Really, really clever presentation. But the actual time we spend with the fly isn't deep or interesting enough to compensate for the fact that his fate is ultimately sad rather than scary (though the ending is disturbing). On the other hand, at least it has A theme, even if it's not as meaningful as the Cronenberg version. So, glad I saw it, though I probably wouldn't watch it more than once.

  11. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Fly

    PRICE + FLY = a very original post war horror movie.

  12. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Fly

    Great technicolor Sci-Fi. Price is wonderful and Herbert Marshall has one of the coolest voices ever.

  13. teresa romã's rating of the film The Fly

    What was all that build up for? Ridiculous.

  14. Daniel Roque's rating of the film The Fly

    Vintage horror > CGI creepy shit

  15. Rachel Tyler's rating of the film The Fly

    3.5. I wish the very end hadn't been uplifting. In the original short story she killed herself in the asylum

  16. msmichel's rating of the film The Fly

    '59 version holds up very well and was a surprise box office hit on release. Elevated by good performances for a genre film especially Patricia Owens. Good script with a couple iconic scenes that have been over parodied over the years. Not up to par with the later Cronenberg remake but that may well be comparing apples to oranges.

  17. Diogo Pires's rating of the film The Fly

    Dos finais mais "qeq foi aquilo" que me lembro

  18. Matt Rolls's rating of the film The Fly

    Probably my favourite fifties sci-fi horror.

  19. KafkaesqueKyle's rating of the film The Fly

    My goodness, that was unexpectedly freaky.

  20. film_lies101's rating of the film The Fly

    Yes, the Cronenberg remake is superior. There is still so much to love here...

  21. Gabriele Taddei's rating of the film The Fly

    Un classico, dramma e horror ben mescolati, e Vincent Price arricchisce di molto il film

  22. Donald R. Monroe's rating of the film The Fly

    Brando. Olivier. DeNiro. Vincent Price.

  23. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Fly

    Underutilized Price (whose character is surprisingly weak) and Owens had problematic acting in this somewhat frustrating horror film. It had its moments though...

  24. mjgildea's rating of the film The Fly

    3 1/2 out of 5 stars. A decent watch, but not the landmark piece of cinema I was expecting to see. I was sort of disappointed by the lack of Vincent Price. The commentary on the dangers of scientific advancement was interesting and the fly makeup was amazing. And Jesus Christ, that spider web scene at the end was horrific even by today's standards.
