Special Features
Before the menu, you can view an up-front anti-piracy ad and a fly landing on the FBI warning (nice touch). As a fly zooms around the menu screen, cat owners (with a decent home theatre speaker system) may observe their feline pets searching frantically for the insect (as mine did). Director Chris Walas joins film historian Bob Burns for an engaging audio commentary on Disc One. There are also bonus trailers, a deleted scene, and an alternate ending. Disc Two adds two impressively in-depth documentaries: the 48-minute Transformations: Looking Back At The Fly II and the 58-minute The Fly Papers: The Buzz On Hollywood
