CURSE OF THE FLY (1965) *** ½

Third in the original Fly movies offers no half-man/half-flies, but interesting mutants and failed experiments. The third generation of the Delambre family is still meddling with the teleportation pods. Brian (The Creeping Unknown) Donlevy is the controlling father of his two scientist sons and is badly scarred from a teleportation accident. His son (George Baker) marries a beautiful concert pianist (Carole Gray) who escaped from a mental institution in her underwear. They are perfectly happy together, until she finds his first wife (with a mutated face) and two mutated assistants locked up in the stables, and she begins losing her grip on her sanity. When the two assistants are transported together, they become a tangled, mutated mess. The other son can’t take it anymore so he smashes the pod which is unfortunate for his father, because he gets lost in limbo between the two pods. Good effects, memorable characters, (especially Gray), and some real scares make up for no flies (except for a photo from Return of the Fly) and makes for an entertaining film. Directed by Don (The Kiss of the Vampire) Sharp.
