Dr. Phibes

Fresh from the wagon, two of Vincent Price’s best performances but in two very different films. While The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) is an original and well written horror film with a darkly comic streak, Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972) is a rather pallid effort relying on too many logical jumps and flat humour to be of interest.

    Good work.
    Shamefully, I’ve never seen either of the Phibes films. However, that
    review of ‘The Abominable Dr Phibes’ has whetted my appetite and I’m
    going to give it a go. Not so sure about the sequel though. I like Price a
    lot but what you say doesn’t make it sound too encouraging.
