Product Description

Amazon.ca

The title says it all--the abominable Dr. Phibes is back and as ruthless as ever. No longer content with merely avenging his wife's death, Phibes is now bent on her resurrection. Phibes and his mute assistant, Vulnavia, set off for Egypt, meting out bizarrely elaborate deaths--everything from clockwork snakes to a particularly severe exfoliation treatment--to all who stand in their way. This time Phibes has two competitors to race against, the trusty Inspector Trout and the renowned archaeologist Biederbeck, who has his own reasons for chasing Phibes. Like its predecessor, Dr. Phibes Rises Again adds dark wit and imaginative art direction to the mix. Vincent Price is once again in high form, playing his organ with swooping arms and adding dry comic touches with a delicately cocked eyebrow. A worthy successor to the classic original. --Ali Davis

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as the original Sept. 23 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The beauty of the original Dr. Phibes movie was that while the plot was fantastic and Phibe's schemes convoluted and almost impossible to pull off, there was always the sense that given a driven and malignant enough intelligence they could (emphasis on could) have happened. In other words in real life there could have been Dr. Phibes-like murders. In the second Phibes film, all pretense of reality is stripped away and the fantastic is embraced. The plot being that Phibes is racing against Robert Quarry's Biederbeck to locate the river of life in order to revive his long dead (yet remarkably perserved) wife, Regina. Whereas in the original, Phibes is merely out to avenge her 'murder' by killing the operating team that tried to save Regina's life. This is not to say this makes for a bad film, it just seems a little diminished when weighed against the original. Just how likely is that a man who can figure out how to survive years entombed with embalming fluid in his veins could not save his wife's life? And what exactly is Phibe's relationship with the conveinently ressurected Vulnavia? How is it that Phibe's tomb was never discovered but his safe was found and the house above him was completly leveled?
That being said, Dr. Phibes Rises Again is one heck of a fun, twisted movie to watch. Vincent Price is again at his campiest and the retro/deco sets are glorious to behold. Even the Egyptian sets are gorgeous and the outrageous props (like the elaborate tuba Phibes carts all the way to Egypt or his standard automated musicians) just add to the outlandish fun.
A number of the character actors from the original make appearances in this second installment including the dogged Inspector Trout and his bewildered Scottland Yard superior.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give It To Me Straight Doctor, I Can Take It! July 8 2004
Format:DVD
Yes, the good doctor (Vincent Price) has risen again, just as diabolical, just as obsessed with his beautiful, dead wife Victoria. He is now trying to get her to Egypt, where he plans on taking her down the secret "river of life" for her complete resurrection! Accompanied by the ever silent Vulnavia (Valli Kemp), Phibes must compete with archeologist / eternal-life seeker Beiderbeck (Robert "Count Yorga" Quarry) in a race to the land of the pharaohs for the expected murder-fest, and ultimate showdown. Lots of laughs and killings-a-plenty in this near perfect Phibes phollow up! Highly recommended...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Horror Movie Taken to the Absurd Aug. 23 2002
Format:VHS Tape
The 1st Phibes was enjoyable enough as Vincent Price punished those Drs. whom killed his wife, each being done away with in a manner appropriate to their profession. Price seems to enjoy this type of movie, Theatre of Blood being a terrific example. The ending leaves open the possibility of a sequel, and here it is. Unfortunately.
Phibes has risen from his double coffin where he slept with his dead wife until a certain time. Upon awaking, he discovers his house destroed and a papyrus, detailing the river of life in Egypt, missing. He traces it to Robery Quarry's house and begins a series of murders to recover the papyrus. It turns out that Quarry also knows about the River of Life and is, in fact, several thousand years old and must return to the River to renew his supply of aqua vitae.
After a few more murders, Phibes and his wife journey down the river, leaving Quarry to perish beside his wife, who recoils in horror as he ages, dies, disintergrates and floats away as dust. there is probably some message there but I don't care.
Several characters reappear in the sequel, even the ones killed in the 1st movie but it's ok. The bumbling detectives add some slapstick humor and everything seems to be tongue-in-cheek.
The murders are why you watch Phibes to see what diabolical manner he thinks up to kill. The needle in the phone is okay but uninspired.
The bottle murder is good but I still don't know how he got the body in the bottle. The Scorpion is predictiable, since they're in the desert and the hawk is just stupid.
Price is his usual excellent self but doesn't seem to enjoy himself as much as he did in the 1st one.
You have to get it to see the end of Phibes and fortunately, it is the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars In De-Nile of Death July 18 2002
Format:DVD
This movie is true to formula for the most successful sequels: it's exactly the same, but completely different.
Egyptologist Dr. Beiderbeck has stolen a uniquely rare map from the ruins of the late Dr. Anton Phibes' palatial estate, with which he intends to locate the waterway of Osiris in Egypt's Valley of the Kings and obtain the elixir of eternal life. The undead Dr. Phibes revives by a mechanism of his own brilliant devise, and with the assistance of his beautiful mute servant, Vulnavia, follows the unlucky Dr. Beiderbeck's party to the land of the pyramids, for a little murder and mayhem - Phibes is sorely ticked, needing the elixir himself for the resurrection of his beloved dead wife, Regina, and doesn't take kindly to amateur interlopers interfering with his plans.
The production is cheaper than its predecessor, but no less enjoyable. The sets and props are obviously less expensive, the colors more washed-out. The first film is more straightforward in its horror, where the sequel is generally more campy in its gruesome killings. Phibes abandons any particular pattern to his slayings, but sticks for the most part to a sort of "local color" motif - hawks, scorpions, sandstorms and the like. As in the original, Phibes comes off as an effective anti-hero because his adversary is a tyrannical cad, and his victims are almost all greedy, treacherous flunkies of Beiderbeck's - aside from which, he shows some nobility in seeking eternal life not for himself, but for his dearly departed beloved.
The cast is good. Robert Quarry is the venal Beiderbeck, with the lovely Fiona Lewis as his spoiled but oddly kind of likeable girlfriend. Hugh Griffith and Terry Thomas return, in different cameo roles, and Caroline Munro is back as Phibes' ultimately passive love-interest.

Vincent Price is wonderful as the nasty Dr. Phibes. Anything with an Ancient Egyptian theme is fine with me. May the Neturu forever bless Mr. Price.
