The Abominable Dr. Phibes

Nine killed her, nine shall die, nine eternities in doom!

Horror legend Vincent Price (The Fall Of The House Of Usher, Theatre Of Blood) is Dr. Phibes, former musician, current murderer. Seeking revenge from the medical staff that left his wife for dead, he sets about knocking them off one-by-one in a series of elaborate murders based upon a Ten Plagues of Egypt. Death by bats, by boils, by blood and more await the nurse and surgeons who failed to save the life of the beloved Victoria Regina Phibes!

A camp classic, The Abominable Dr. Phibes sets itself apart from the seventies horror crowd with its knowing humour and art deco sets, and also prefigures the Saw movies with its increasingly fiendish set of murder devices.

Presented in a new high definition transfer from original film elements by MGM.

First released: Monday 10th November 2014
