THE FLY was one of the seminal films from my childhood...it was my first sci-fi/horror movie (seen on WOR 9 at the tender age of 5), my first Vincent Price movie, the first movie that sent me running to my mother in tears (the "help me"-shrieking fly and then Herbert Marshall squashing both it and the spider hurled me over the edge) and still kinda makes me quivery...so I decided to give it a whirl today for the first time in ages. Here's what I don't get...why does the fly-with- Hedison's-head leave the lab in the first place? We're to assume the fly must have some degree of Hedison's brain matter working, right (otherwise, why would it be able to speak and say things like "help me!" and "go away!")? Shouldn't the fly have just stuck around in case Hedison-with-fly's-head wanted to try the experiment again, instead of making Patricia Owen and son and poor frazzled housekeeper Kathleen Freeman tear apart the study and toss sugar about? I'd think he'd want to stick around where his wife, son, and brother were anyway...unless fly-with-hedison's-head was so horrified by itself it would rather buzz off than face his family.
