This is the 1972, well thought out sequel, to the great british horror film The Abominable Dr Phibes. Vincent Price plays Dr Anton Phibes in one of his best screen performances as the mad and very bad doctor. This film starts with extracts from the first film outing, just to get you in the mood. The soundtrack and humour also adds to this amazing film.
Three years have passed when Phibes rises from the tomb and also takes his beloved dead wife Victoria [Caroline Munro], whom he had spent his time with in suspended animation. Dr Phibes then sails to Egypt to the tomb of the dead pharaohs to find the key of life to resurrect Victoria. He is accompanied by his mute partner in crime Vulnavia, and the corpse of his dead wife. It's not long before his catalogue of well worked out murders begin using very clever methods. These include a weird and wonderful way of drowning, birds of prey and scorpions to name a few. Watch out for a brief special guest appearance by horror legend Peter Cushing as Captain, and a young John Thaw (The Sweeney) as Shaver, an unfortunate victim of Phibes. Biederbeck (Robert Quarry), and colleagues go in search of eygptian jewels not knowing Phibes is in search of them. Can Inspector Trout (Peter Jeffrey), and Waverley (John Cater) stop Phibes once and for all in another brilliant nail biting british horror finale?
