What can I say? - you either love him or loathe him (surely there's no-one who's undecided on the Master?)
Of my friends, family and acquaintances I am alone in loving Vincent Price. And, believe me, this is the pinnacle of his acting career.
It's really not just him- everything from the inventive storyline, witty script, creative directing (whatever happened to Douglas Hickox?) to the various excellent supporting actors, this film is the best you'll get- in the genre....
Other reviewers have given this the once over & done a good job so I'll let you read those but there are also various sub themes as well; is it not ironic that Price's melodramatic acting is the central theme here? And your like or dislike of what's before you could be pivotal to your survival.....
The DVD itself is disappointing- there's an awful trailer and not much else; but IS there anything they could have dredged up? An interview or documentary perhaps?
Also- I'm finding that a lot of these DVD releases have awful sound quality. Ho hum.
Even so- this is pretty much my favorite film in this category and if you've got this far BUY IT!!
P.s: the locations (London) are also very effective- deserted post-industrial landscapes). Most of these will now been bulldozed or commercialised so enjoy!

First up - I love this film and never tire of watching it. My gripe is with Amazon and their customer service response. After pre-ordering this many months ago I was disappointed to find a pixellation fault on one of the extras. OK...maybe just bad luck? I informed Amazon of this and they sent a replacement - same issue I'm afraid. Not overawed by Amazon's response the 2nd time, I contacted Arrow films (the maker) who confirmed the fault and that they had already advised Amazon who should have not issued any faulty stock. Despite speaking to Amazon at some length about this...it didn't register...and was given no reassurance the disc would be "swapped" for a corrected version.,,merely send it back and we'll give you a refund. As such, both faulty items are being returned and have decided to buy from Arrow direct. 3rd time lucky?

Format: DVD
Price decided to ham it up for the Abominable Dr. Phibes and Dr. Phibes Rides again. Riding on a tide, he took up this high camp film, and some of England's biggest name actors came out to play his victims. In Phibes style, you have a series of set victims - in this case, Stage critics - and the much scorned Shakespearian Actor Edward Lionheart extracting his revenge by killing his victims through acting out a scene from Shakespeare's plays. Deliciously witty Diana Rigg is there to support Price as his doting, darling daughter Edwina, who mourns her father's recent death, and hisses at the critics who refused to honour his talent while he was alive.
Price's all-star victims include his real-life wife, Coral Browne, Harry Andrews, Ian Hendry, Jack Hawkins, Robert Morley (especially funny twist on the tale!), Denis Price and Diana Dors and more. Hot on the trail of the killer, with Hendry in tow, are Inspector Boot (Milo O'Shea) and Sergeant Dogge (Eric Sykes), but Price and his "helper" are one step ahead.
It's Price at his wickedly delightful best. And great to see the funny takes of the Bards tales being used as a murder medium. Douglas Hickox (Zulu Dawn, Sitting Target), ably orchestrated the marvellously talent crew of actors through this black humour marathon.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Antony May TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 6 July 2007
Format: DVD
This is a wonderful movie. Vincent Price plays the brilliant but one dimensional Shakesperian actor Edward Lionheart. Lionheart's desire to perform in nothing but Shakespear earns him some pretty 'sour' and mocking reviews over the years from film critics. Subsequently ignored each year for the award of best actor because of this by these said critics, Lionheart decides to murder each one of them to get his revenge. To add to the sweetness of his revenge, Lionheart murders each one by replicating the death scenes from various shakesperian plays. Price is at his brooding, menacing and unnervingly calm best in this film and, despite the black comedy element to the film, there are moments which make you feel decidedly uncomfortable. As others have said, this is not a particularly good transfer to DVD and there are no extra's of note either but if you love 70's horror and or Vincent Price you should buy this film.
