The Fly

 (1958)

The Fly Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Scientist Andre Delambre becomes obsessed with his latest creation, a matter transporter. He has varying degrees of success with it. He eventually decides to use a human subject, himself, with tragic consequences. During the transference, his atoms become merged with a fly, which was accidentally let into the machine. He winds up with the fly's head and one of it's arms and the fly winds up with Andre's head and arm. Eventually, Andre's wife, Helene discovers his secret and must make a decision whether to let him continue to live like that or to do the unthinkable and euthanize him to end his suffering...

The Fly Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Fly is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. Fox has continually been one of the leaders in maintaining and restoring their deep catalog in high definition, and that trend continues with this largely impeccable presentation of a CinemaScope classic. It's a bit odd that Fox continues to license some of its pre-existing HD masters when it's obviously able to bring these titles out so well themselves, usually with some nice bonus features accompanying the main film as well. Just a cursory glance at the clips from The Fly included on the older Fly Trap supplemental feature shows just how nicely the elements have been spruced up for this release. Though Deluxe Color isn't known for its ability to withstand the rigors of age, the palette here is quite nicely saturated and overall very accurate looking. I personally would have liked the greens boosted just a bit, but reds, purples and flesh tones are largely exemplary. There's no overly obvious damage to report here, either, and contrast and black levels are both strong and consistent throughout this presentation. As should be expected, the optical effects (see screenshot 12 for one of the most iconic effects not just from this film, but in the entire annals of cinema) look a bit degraded, with additional dirt, grain and softness. Some midrange shots look just slightly fuzzy in comparison to the bulk of the film, and once or twice colors don't appear quite as robust as the rest of the film (see screenshot 5 for an example of this slight but noticeable anomaly). A high bit rate and a roomy BD-50 provide ample space and streaming to offer an artifact free presentation. By and large this is a stellar transfer that should easily delight the film's many fans.


The Fly Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Fly's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 4.0 mix is similarly excellent, boasting at times really inventive separation and offering excellent fidelity and some surprisingly wide dynamic range. Dialogue is cleanly presented and is often quite directional, and the film's great foley effects and score are also represented very well. There are a number of fantastic little moments here, including the "disappearance" of the family cat, and, late in the film, that high frequency squeal for help that is unforgettable once it's been heard.
