Vincent Price’s Dr Phibes avenges the death of his wife by bumping off the culprits with each murder having a biblical connection.
Very camp, very funny and very unsettling- this is one of Price’s best just like Witchfinder General and the Poe films he also made with Roger Corman.
Check out Phibes’ clockwork band- one of the eeriest things committed to celluloid.
Also check out the classic art deco decors and groovier surroundings that capture the early 70s so fantastically.
Caroline Munro appears but only as photos of Phibes’ tragic dead wife.
