5.0 out of 5 stars He's back again., 8 April 2005
This review is from: Dr Phibes Rises Again [DVD] [1972] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
One of the most bizarre and sickly inventive films of all time and an absolute classic.
Vincent Price is back with more fiendish deaths devised for foolhardy folk. This time it's got an ancient Egyptian slant with some great macabre moments (normally the deaths it has to be said)
For me it's more polished than the first Phibes film. It starts with a zany recap of the first film (I'm not too sure about it's usefulness for those who haven't watched the original but there you go).
I love the mixture of ethereal organ music and kitsch 70's beebop. I wonder when they made it if they realised that people would view both as equally 'quaint' in the future.
There are lots of stalwarts British actors popping up in cameos (John Thaw is an example). The character 'Vulnavia' is there too (although played by a different actress). I'm a bit mystified as I seem to remember her dying in the first film. The character is very unsettling- played by Valli Kemp (Australian semi-finalist in the 1970 Miss World contest and whose only other film was the 'Great Muppet Caper' a decade later!).
Oh- and for those of you still interested the other actress to play Vulnavia was Virginia North................
