From the hallowed music vaults of 20th Century Fox comes this elaborately produced 2-CD set devoted to the classic 1958 chiller THE FLY and its two sequels RETURN OF THE FLY and THE CURSE OF THE FLY.

Each of these scores showcases the efforts of Paul Sawtell and Bert Schefter, two of the genre’s most versatile collaborators well known for Irwin Allen’s VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA and THE LOST WORLD, KRONOS and THE BLACK SCORPION, and are being released here for the first time ever in any format.

This extravagant limited edition package contains the complete scores to all three films, fully restored and digitally remastered, plus a massive 56-page booklet featuring exhaustively researched liner notes by noted film historian Tom Weaver and film music specialist Randall Larson.

The booklet also contains a dizzying array of never-before-published production photos, rare movie poster art and lobby cards from all over the world, pre-release trade ads and showmanship campaigns, a detailed pictorial on make-up supervisor Ben Nye and his creation of THE FLY, and much more!

This deluxe double-CD pressing is limited to 3000 copies, so catch the buzz before it’s too late!

THE FLY - Wealthy Helene Delambre (Patricia Owens) is discovered late at night in the factory owned by her husband Andre (David Hedison). Helene stands beside a huge metal press, which has crushed the head and arm of her husband. Held for murder, the near-catatonic Helene refuses to tell anyone--not even Andre's brother Francois (Vincent Price)--why she did it. Francois cannot help but notice that Helene reacts in mortal terror when a tiny flies zips through the room. Nor can he disregard the statement made by Helene's son Philippe (Charles Herbert) that the fly has a curious white head and leg. When Francois pretends that he's captured the fly, Helene relaxes enough to tell her story. It seems that Andre, a scientist, had been working on a matter transmitter, which he claimed could disintegrate matter, then reintegrate it elsewhere. After a few experiments, Andre tried the transmitter himself. Just as he stepped into the disintegration chamber, a fly also flew into the chamber. We aren't immediately shown the results of this, save for the fact that Andre afterward insists upon keeping his head and arm covered. Alone with her husband, Helene abruptly removes the covering, revealing that Andre now bears the head of a fly! His atoms have become mixed up with the fly, and now he is unable to reverse the procedure. Deciding that his transmitter will be a bogy rather than a blessing to mankind, Andre smashes the apparatus and burns his notes. He then instructs Helene, via body language, to crush his fly-like head and arm in the press. Neither Francois nor inspector Charas (Herbert Marshall) believe the story...until, while staring intently at a spider's web in the garden, they see a tiny entrapped fly with Andre's head and arm, tinnily screaming "Help me! Help me!" as the slavering spider approaches (If you're wondering why Vincent Price and Herbert Marshall do not look one another in the eye during this scene, it is because they couldn't deliver their dialogue without dissolving into laughter). The 1958 The Fly is one of the definitive big-budget horror films of its decade. Best bit: the prismatic "fly's eye view" of the screaming Patricia Owens. The Fly was adapted from George Langelaan's short story by James (Shogun) Clavell.

THE RETURN OF THE FLY - As the horror story opens, Francois (Vincent Price) explains to Philippe (Brett Halsey) that one of his father's experiments on a "matter transmitter" went wrong -- his head and one arm were transformed into that of a gigantic fly. Since his instincts were beginning to be transformed as well, he asked Philippe's mother (her funeral occasions the tale) to kill him. Like father, like son. Now Philippe is experimenting in the same way, though unknown to him, his assistant Alan (David Frankham) is in it for his own gain. When Philippe is forced to follow his father's example, the question is, can the procedure be reversed? 1959

THE CURSE OF THE FLY - This horror movie, the third and final entry in "The Fly" series, features a failed teleportation device, a mad scientist, a fugitive from a looney bin, and a closet full of mutants. The trouble begins again after a young woman escapes from a mental institution and ends up at the home of the Delambre family. There she finds the family leader continuing his experiments in using a machine to teleport people from one place to another. She also finds his handsome son whom she marries. After she discovers a closet filled with failed teleportation experiments, the police are notified. The crazed scientist tries to use his machine. Again it fails and all that remains of the mad inventor is a gooey blob. 1965
