Return of the Fly (1959)

Fifteen years after his father’s experiments with matter transmission fail, Philippe Delambre (Brett Halsey) and his uncle François (Vincent Price) attempt to create a matter transmission device on their own. However, their experiments have disastrous results, turning Philippe into a horrible half-man, half-fly creature.

Vincent Price signed on after reading the first draft of the script. However, the studio demanded re-writes in order to reduce production costs, removing much of what Price had liked about the first draft.
