31 Weird Tales: The Abominable Dr. Phibes

A marvelous dark confection with Vincent Price as a mad genius seeking revenge on the doctors he holds responsible for his wife death and using the 10 Biblical Plagues of Egypt as his template. That only begins to scratch the surface of this mescaline soaked Art Deco gem. Perfectly arch in tone and performances and unusually lush looking for AIP. Most recommended.

I put Dr. Phibes up on my blog on Oct 7th. Nice to know I'm not the only one digging this film. Great Halloween viewing.
