Poster of The Fly

...the film’s climactic reveal of André’s transmogrified appearance – the hirsute fly face, the pulsating proboscis, the white lab coat from which a shaggy fly’s claw protrudes – achieves a rare blend of the ludicrous and the genuinely horrific.

Jonathan Rigby, American Gothic: Six Decades of Classic Horror Cinema (Signum Books, 2017)

The revelation, when it comes, is nonetheless one of the screen’s greatest moments of shock...an unmasking scene to rank alongside those of The Phantom of the Opera and Mystery of the Wax Museum.

Denis Meikle, Vincent Price: The Art of Fear (Reynolds & Hearn, 2003)
