Unfortunately, there is no youtube link to Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox’s intro for Kurt Neumann’s 1958 science-fiction horror film The Fly. Instead you will have to rely on this link to the transcript of Cox’s intro (read here). The episode’s original airdate was August 7, 1988 (read here). Personally, I am a bigger fan of director David Cronenberg’s 1986 remake, which was the work of a filmmaker discovering a personal connection to the material. In contrast, Neumann’s film plays out more like a routine monster movie by comparison. Nevertheless, Vincent Price is entertaining as always and the climax is impressive in it’s own way.

Here is a youtube link to the trailer below
