Gallery Update – Dr. Phibes

Updates for both 1971’s The Abominable Dr. Phibes and 1972’s sequel Dr. Phibes Rises Again are live on the review and the gallery page.

Revisiting this was interesting. The films have cult status and it is easy to see why. Vincent Price camping it up with ridiculously complex murder methods is pure cult catnip. Impractical, but that’s the point, I suppose.

While I could not care less about Phibes, I stan Vulnavia. Or maybe I simp for Vulnavia. I’m old, slang is hard. She’s 100% classy and capable femme fatale. It would have been a really short movie if Phibes just handed her a list of names and a sniper rifle.

Feel free to address that famous controversy that’s constantly plagued cinematic history in the comments. Who’s your favorite Vulnavia?
