1000 Misspent Hours ends with this: "You won’t be disappointed. It’s much better than any of the Bond films whose overall tone it rips off." Moria says,
The Abominable Dr Phibes is like a Rolls-Royce among horror films. It has an ornate wit that seems to be an epitome the tail-end of the Anglo-Horror cycle was heading towards. And it features what is possibly the best performance that Vincent Price ever gave. Dr Phibes is a camp masterpiece of sublime elegance

  2. The Daughter loves both of the Dr. Phibes movies (and anything else Vincent Price had anything to do with), but neither son likes them at all.
