The Abominable Dr. Phibes

The Abominable Dr. Phibes is a 1971 Vincent Price film. Also starring are Joseph Cotton, Peter Jeffrey, Terry-Thomas and Hugh Griffith. Basil Kirchin does the music.

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
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."


  1. A true classic

  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.
