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>

Goofs

When Trout and Waverley stop their car in the desert to consult a map, Waverley points left and states that Cairo lies in that direction, then points right and says that the Red Sea is in that direction. Cairo is west of the Red Sea, so logically he's just pointed west, then east. Waverley then looks forward and tells Trout that England lies that way. They are actually looking south, with their backs to the correct direction. See more »

Quotes

Trout: Phibes must have used that storm last night as cover.
Waverly: Used it? He probably summoned it!

I liked the subtle humor in this one
14 September 1999 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

Dr. Phibes rises from his grave 3 years after entering and goes on a quest for immortality. This one was about as good as the original, I thought, with another batch of really neat ways to kill folks. Good to see Robert Quarry again; I remember him well from that excellent old film "Count Yorga, Vampire", a real scare treat. This was a fun, funny movie to view, I recommend it highly.
