This final installment of Animal Trilogy centers on the rock band drummer Roberto Tobias (Brandon), who accidentally murders a disturbed stalker during a knife fight.  In the moments after, Tobias notices a mysterious masked figure taking pictures of the grizzly act.  When photographs of the murder are mailed to him, Tobias attempts to track down the masked man blackmailing him, while he is followed by a bizarre toy puppet and a growing number of dead bodies.  Worried for her husband, Tobias’s wife hires a private investigator to help him before it is too late. Long overlooked, mostly due to the limited availability of prints, “Four Flies on Grey Velvet” is presented on a rare 35mm print.
