THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES
1971, Park Circus/MGM, 94 min, USA, Dir: Robert Fuest

Director Robert Fuest, a veteran of TV series “The Avengers,” brings his flamboyant visual style and tongue-in-cheekiness to bear in this 1920s tale of the disfigured Dr. Anton Phibes (Vincent Price), a madman bent on vengeance after the accidental death of his wife. Trying to dodge various deadly biblical plagues along the way - Phibes’ preferred method for dispatching enemies - are Joseph Cotten, Terry-Thomas and Peter Jeffrey.
