My favorite Price movie & one of my all time favorites.  It's like if Dr. Evil actually killed people.  With a hottie sidekick named Vulnavia.  My personal favorite was the supercharged portable ac unit.  That's some serious creativity.  I was waiting for the frickin' sharks with laser beams, but I wasn't disappointed.  The rest of the deaths were just as creative.  I mean, come on - carniverous grasshoppers?  BWAHAHA!!  It doesn't get any better than that.  Except for maybe the catapulted unicorn head impaling scene.  I am anxious to see the sequel...

in the 1980's, George Romero was attached to direct a 2nd sequel, PHIBES RESSURECTUS, with a script by the original writers (they hadn't worked on the 1st sequel,which wasn't as good as the original). Shame that never happened, as this is one of my faves...

Your review of Dr. Phibes is hilarious, especially the "what I have learned from this film" list.  I had been meaning to see this film for nostalgia's sake recently, but what sealed the deal tonight was seeing a Diane Arbus retrospective at the Museum of Fine Arts.  I don't know if she got around to seeing it when it was released, but I'm sure she would have liked it!

Great Price. Great killings. What is left is pure boredom.

I'd never heard of this film before until i came across this site by accident. I bought it on DVD, and it is quality viewing, great film. The unicorn head scene is hilarious.

Only one other person in my group of friends had seen Phibes, so we corrupted the rest of the group. Now we are all Phibes fanatics!

I don't believe I,ve seen a bad Vincent Price movie.  He really get,s into character.  Phibes rules!
« Reply #26 on: November 25, 2006, 04:09:03 PM »

Only Vincent could do that name justice.
My all time favorite B-movie, altho at the time it was the scariest thing.
The House that Dripped Blood. Another of those icky-ooky movies. Christopher Lee I believe in that.

Now I gotta find these on DVD.....

Honey....popcorn run!!!!

My favorite of all Vincent Price movies.The scene with the man in the frog mask was my favorite death scene .Vulnavia was my favorite character she was more evil then the good doctor himself. I would marry her myself.I give it six stars.

I also loved the movie, but one thing got me really puzzled.  The Rabbi says nobody knows the order of the plagues, and the movie takes some liberties there (e.g. the death of the first born was the last plague, not the ninth).  All anyone needs to do to find out the order is to read Exodus, where everything is spelled out in great detail.

The wave files were well chosen and brought back memories - but a decent "Viictoooooorriaa' is as canonical as a Moriaty [tm:goons]"AOooooooowwwww".
