Storyline

The moon rises at a predestined angle and awakens the sleeping Dr. Phibes three years later. To his dismay, he finds his house has been demolished and his papyrus scrolls stolen, the scrolls he needs to find the Pharoah's Tomb in Egypt, where the River of Life flows. After identifying the source of the papyrus theft, he packs and leaves for Egypt with his assistant Vulnavia, still intent upon awakening his dead wife Victoria. The parties responsible for the theft of Phibes' scrolls suffer an attrition problem as Inspector Trout chases him across the world. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Dr. Phibes is back, but not as abominable as in the first one
14 March 2009 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

I like the Vincent Price Classics: Theatre of Blood and The abominable Dr. Phibes. What keep my most intention on both movies were the questions: Who is next? And how will Vince mange to bring them to death? Also it was quite interesting that Vince killed his victims after a certain scheme (After Shakespeare's Dramas in Theatre of Blood and the biblical plagues in the first Dr. Phibes). I cannot say the same thing about the second Phibes Movie. In the second Phibes he just kills the people because they disturbed him bringing his dead wife to life. It would have been much more interesting if he would have killed them after Egyptian Mythology or something similar. The killing scenes in the first half aren't that imaginative as in these other Vince Price Flicks. Later there are a few really extraordinary murders. Not quite sure but maybe the filmmakers of SAW also saw Dr. Phibes rises again. Two popular actors Peter Cushing and Terry Thomas have short cameos. It's a pity because I would have liked to see both as victims and not in such useless roles.

Nevertheless also the second Dr. Phibes Movie is enjoyable and has some black British humour. Vincent Price with his stoic grimaces is wonderful as ever. Vulnavia is back and pretty as in the first Phibes. This time she is played by a different actress. The movie has a certain campy charm and some brilliant weird moments. If you like the first Dr. Phibes Movie and don't expect too much "Dr. Phibes rises again" will entertain you.
