Format: DVD
This whole film has its tongue firmly placed in cheek. Its Trippy, its Camp and it's all about surreal embellishment and melodramatic excess. Realism plays no part in this. From the blood that resembles strawberry juice to Price's outrageously theatrical make-up. But as long as you have a macabre sense of humour, I think you will enjoy this film as much as I did. Price is at his hammy best as the disfigured organ playing Dr.Phibes. Phibes is seeking revenge on the group of surgeons, who he blames for killing his wife in an unnamed surgical operation. What follows is a compelling carnival of murder in an art deco looking world. All the murders (based on the plagues of Egypt) are as much genius as they are ridiculous. Rats on planes and shrinking frog masks to name just a couple. And there is a sick death trap/puzzle at the end, which is equally as disturbing as anything seen in a Saw movie. At its heart this film is a love-story. Price gives an outstanding performance as the anguished Phibes. Creepy and funny, yet tragic all at the same time. Comic moments come from Peter Jeffrey as the apparently slow Inspector Trout. Also look out for Terry-Thomas and an uncredited role for Caroline Munro.

Format: DVD
The inimitable Vincent Price plays the villainous Dr. Anton Phibes (a character obviously inspired by The Phantom of The Opera - he plays the organ, he's horribly disfigured underneath the mask he wears and he has a penchant for staging a series of gruesome murders) in this pair of beautifully-crafted horror films from the 1970s.

In "The Abominable Dr. Phibes", Dr. Phibes seeks revenge against a group of doctors who failed to save the life of his beloved wife, Victoria (Caroline Munro), following an horrific car crash. Phibes uses the ten Biblical plagues bestowed upon Egypt as his inspiration and this sets up some highly-inventive murder scenes. This is a wonderful and extremely entertaining film that combines horror and humour very effectively. The great cast also includes Joseph Cotten, Terry-Thomas, Hugh Griffith, Peter Jeffrey and John Cater.

In "Dr. Phibes Rises Again" it's very much a case of carry on again doctor as Phibes travels to Egypt in search of The River of Life, used by the Pharoahs, that will grant eternal life to he and his wife, Victoria. Also in search of this river, is someone called Biederbeck (Robert Quarry) who has his own personal reasons for wanting to find it. Once again we are treated to some inventive murders as Biederbeck's team are bumped off one by one by Phibes and his mysterious female assistant, Vulnavia. Comic relief is provided by Terry-Thomas (who plays a different character this time) and Peter Jeffrey and John Cater, who reprise their roles as two bumbling policemen trying to catch Phibes. The cast also includes Peter Cushing, Beryl Reid, John Thaw, Milton Reid and the gorgeous Fiona Lewis.

What is there not to like about these two marvellous films?

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Stylishly directed by Robert Fuest, these are two delightfully camp horror comedies from the early 70's. Vincent Price is wonderful as the hideously scarred Phibes (usually wearing a Vincent Price mask) who can only talk when attaching a tube, itself attached to a record player, to his throat.

Set in the 1920's, in the first film he wreaks a Biblical revenge on the doctors who killed his wife and in the second does the same on those who would stop him resurrecting her.

The supporting cast is excellent, as are the stylish sets, in particular Phibes' art deco lair, the period music, costume, photography, and witty script. This budget price, widescreen with subtitles, diptych of movies is impossible to beat for three hours of fun.

Oh yes, and it features my favourite horror movie device - sweet faced fruit-eating bats pretending to be scary vicious blood-drinkers. Grr!

...this double bill of Dr Phibes is a classic...gloriously shot, with pacey direction and good solid acting from a talented cast(an outstanding role by Price),make for a unique and never imitated viewing delight that is exactly how 70's tongue-in-cheek horror should be...heavy on peril,a slice of black comedy and a little bit of the red stuff thrown in for good measure...great!
N.B-nice picture quality too/not as grainy as the late nite T.V versions or the dreaded VHS! Enjoy!!! MFP

Oddly enough, given the wonderful richness of his voice and his tremendous faculty with language, Vincent Price doesn't have many lines in either of these two movies. Much of his performance is silent; indeed much of it is done through his eyebrows due to the characters mostly immobile face. That he still manages to create a passionate and driven character that we can sympathise with despite the terrible murders he executes is a statement to the talent of the man.

The two Dr Phibes movies are great fun, done with a wonderful touch of the bizarre, the surreal and the horrible, delivered with a wink to the audience as if to say "don't take this seriously - we don't!" Phibes himself is a tremendously charismatic arch-villain, and as many times as I've watched these movies I'm always sad when they come to an end.
