Not enough good things to say about this set. Simply put, the video & audio are fantastic on both movies. Fly 1 is better plot-wise Fly 2 is an effect driven gore-fest (like Fly 1) with an interesting story that ties almost seamlessly into the 1st. If gore is not your thing avoid this set at all costs. Both movies have great actors in them Fly 1 has Jeff Goldblum & Geena Davis saying her now infamous line. & Eric Stoltz in Fly 2 acts circles around most of the rest of the cast. I wont get into the plots as they are already listed here. I recommend this box set highly.

The Fly is a great story about a scientist working on a transporter gets a fly melded with him. We get The Fly and The Fly Part II from the 1980s. I'm confused that Region 2 gets 7 discs but we get only 2 discs in this 2007 DVD release. So it's a mixed bag because it could have been a good move to simply duplicate the Region 2 release instead of cutting it in half. You are almost better off buying each film separately on DVD. The Fly Collector Set & The Fly Collection make up the entire set but are sold separately in the US. The Fly Collection contains The Fly, Return Of The Fly and The Curse Of The Fly. Both collections are on DVD only (there is no Blu-Ray collection in the US but you can buy the film as a stand-alone Blu-ray). Fans of Vincent Price won't like this particular Collector Set.

I would rate the movies 4 stars and this set 2 stars. Until we see The Fly: Ultimate Collectors' Edition Box Set in the US on DVD or Blu-Ray (with all the extras) this set isn't complete. The Fly got a 2-disc DVD that was fully loaded with content ported over here. It has an almost 3-hour long documentary about the making of the film but it drags. We need a little more to upgrade. If we see The Ultimate Collector's Set from Region 2 released on Blu-Ray it would be an easy decision to purchase it. The missing pieces are to be found in The Fly Collection. That box set is not exactly overloaded with bonus material either but it does get a bonus disc. So we are missing a disc somewhere.

"The Fly Ultimate Collector's Edition includes The Fly (1958), Return Of The Fly (1959), Curse Of The Fly (1965), The Fly - 20th Anniversary Special Edition (1986) and The Fly II - Special Edition (1989). Pushing the boundaries of horror from the outset, The Fly franchise successfully combined spine tingling shocks with heartwarming romance and produced some of the most frightening yet memorable films of all time. Presented in a limited edition Teleportation Pod boxset (modeled on the pod used by Jeff Goldblum in the 1986 film) this collection finally brings together the classic 80's blockbusters with the original films that inspired them."

The Fly/ Fly 2 is awesome movie from back in the day. It will have you on the edge of your seat wondering how they pulled of some many disgusting scenes that look better than CG! Buy this set it's worth the money!

I had Seen both movies when they came out in the 80's and were scary enough. I wanted to see how they would sand up by todats standards. I think they are still good movies except the sound is a little hollow like most all movies from the 80's and before. (not much sub woofer action)
