Oh fie! Mr. Phibes!

One of my absolute favorites of Price's deliciously macabre masterpieces. Can't say if I like this or Theater of Blood better. Sure, the means of eliminating the victims are contrived and strain the suspension of disbelief, but the tone and atmosphere created by Price's presence is grand, magnificent, and ghoulish.

I agree, Mr. Phibes, for all its over-the-top hokeyness, still plays it with more or less of a straight face, and appropriately. But the mischievous glee with which Price pursues his victims in Theater of Blood, mixed with the occasional storm of passionate outrage, makes it one of the top of his macabre movies.
