The Dr finally will see us!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Dr Phibes [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Since I first saw these movies as a child, my love of Vincent Price and the Dr Phibes films have never waned.
At last those wonderful people at Arrow have issued a limited release (3,000) box set that not only incorporates both Phibes films with a clutch of extras but also a superb 100 page book to accompany the Phibes phenomena.
A shame that no deleted scenes or such-like was either found or indeed around for inclusion but the quality of the movies on Blu-ray are superb, at times so sharp it belies the age of the movies themselves.
Along with Theatre of Blood and Madhouse, the Phibes movies are important for anyone who was interested in Price's career as they represent a clutch of fine English output with Vincent in the early seventies. Arrow have given us Theatre of Blood and now the Phibes box set, please let's have a similar issue for Madhouse to complete that Price (ly) period of Vincent.

Any news on the commentaries? How would you rate them - especially the director's commentary? Is it a good one or one of those where there are long pregnant pauses?

The director commentary gives some interesting insights but for real Phibes fans they know around 75%.
