After fleeing from the law to his secret crypt at the end of "The Abominable Dr. Phibes", Phibes (Price) returns to again seek out a way to return his deceased wife to the living and deal with interfering interlopers along the way too ! His quest takes him to Egypt in search of the river of life that can provide the answer to his dreams.....
The second Phibes film is even more polished than the first, with Robert Quarry providing a fine adversary to Phibes as the cunning archaelogist Beiderbeck, himself living on borrowed time. Additionally, there is a wonderful support cast with such luminaries as Peter Cushing, Terry Thomas & Hugh Griffiths adding more finesse to this production.
And keeping in line with the Biblical plagues & gory comeuppances aspect of the first Phibes production, those persons stupid enough to challenge the evil doctor soon meet their doom by a variety of grisly and ingenious means !!
A campy, thrilling and entertaining film that has not diminshed in enjoyment on each subsequent viewing....and the transfer to DVD has kept the colors and art deco mood of the film very well. A definite recommendation to any cult film fans collection...both Phibes adventures are grand entertainment !
The film begins by relating some highlights from the first film (amazing how they can sum up a movie in the space of three minutes) to which we learn it's now three years later, and as the planets align themselves, Phibes (Price), who has since been in a state of suspended animation, rises like the phoenix from the ashes as he has a new quest, one that involves resurrecting his long dead wife Victoria along with ensuring eternal life for both him and his beloved...good luck with all that...also returning is Phibes faithful and fashionable mute assistant Vulnavia (Kemp), which is a pretty neat trick given that whole acid incident from the last film.Read more ›
i like the first film, a really Good thriller lots of suspense of course Vincent price is fantastic as Dr Phibes
the first film had brilliantly written script and was well Directed by the late Robert Fuest who passed away 2 years ago now
the plot for the sequel is similar to the first film that's all i can say
wikipedia has the plot got to wikipedia website read it from them
but Director Robert Fuest also directed this 2nd Dr Phibes film
so the film still has some suspense and of course brilliant acting from Vincent price
i didn't like the ending thou, i thought it was stupid ending, but every fan will have opinions
so it's still a Good sequel, the first was the best of course
well this sequel is now on blu-ray from scream factory
this film is part of the Vincent price collection II set
the film does look really Good in a new High definition transfer in 1:85:1 widescreen better than the old dvd version
and a new Master audio stereo mix which does look and sound much much better than the old dvd release from over 10 years ago
sadly no new extras, this blu-ray has the same extra from the dvd release which is just Theatrical trailer & Stills Gallery
i'm not surprised actually that there's no new special features
most of the cast & crew from the film have passed away now
Director Robert Faust passed away 2 years ago
but Robert did do a Audio commentary for the first Dr Phibes blu-ray re-issue which is in the
first Vincent price blu-ray collection set
you may like the Audio commentary with Robert , you may not, personally i found it pointless listening to
Robert had a very difficult time remembering what he filmed on set...Read more ›
