15 years after the events of The Fly: Philippe (Brett Halsey), the son of the original Fly, has since grown up to be a young scientist himself, and he is hell-bent to continue the work on the teleporter (or disintegrating-integrating machine, as it is called here) his father had to give up once he had been turned into a fly.

Rather understandably, Philippe's uncle Francois (Vincent Price) is totally against it, but Philippe goes ahead anyways with the help of his loyal assistant Alan (David Frankham), even if that means he has to blackmail his uncle.

Eventually though, after Philippe's first experiments are successful, Philippe manages to regain his uncle's trust, and soon enough, uncle Francois even helps witht he experiments himself out of his own free will. And soon enough, too, the teleporter seems to be working properly ...

... which is when Alan turns out to not be the loyal assistant he seemed to be, as he wants to get hold of the plans for the teleporter and sell them on his own ... and when a cop steps in hisw way, he throws him into the teleporter with a rat (which results in a rather ridiculous cross-breed) and then kills him.

Later, Philippe too tries to stop him, but is thrown into the teleporter with a fly, which leads to the same results as with his father: His human body comes out of the teleporter with a fly's head and arm while the fly suddenly has a human head and arm ... and the human with the fly head soon goes after Alan and his fence (Dan Seymour) to kill them while Francois - who has been badly injured by Alan - is on the lookout for the fly with Philippe's head so he can reverse the experiment.

Of course, Francois manages to turn Philippe back to human form in the end, and Philippe can look into a brighter future in the arms of his sweetheart (Danielle De Metz) - a future without teleporters ...


The story of the original Fly is by now considered classic science fiction, even if it is somewhat silly. However, to repeat the same story only one year later with an added crime plot results in rather pure trash - so no, the film is not on par with its predecessor. Still, if you like silly and trashy science fiction with the occasional unintentional humour (especially the cop/rat cross-breed), you might as well give this one a look. It might not be as enjoyable (for its shortcomings) as many comparable AIP-flicks, but it's a good laugh anyways.

By the way, while original Fly was in colour, this sequel is in black and white - which is more in tune with its trashiness anyways ...
