Son of a Glitch

Vincent Price, David Frankham and Brett Halsey in Return of the Fly (Edward Bernds, 1959). This time around the human-insect fusion is caused intenionally by a treacherous lab assistant as part of industrial espionage, and the resulting Man-Fly takes revenge on the spy and his partner. But just as before, Vincent Price's character is side-lined from the action. Thanks to David Cairns for the bitchin' title.
