The Abominable Dr. Phibes / Dr. Phibes Rises Again

(1971 /1972) Tongue in cheek art deco horror double bill with Vincent Price as a disfigured doctor seeking revenge on those he holds responsible for his wife's death following a car accident. In the first film Phibes uses Biblical plagues as the basis for his revenge. In the sequel, Phibes attempts to resurrect his wife, stopping those who interfere with Egyptian-themed deathtraps. The first flick is better, but they're both worth seeing.

I love, love, LOVE these movies. Vincent Price is at some sort of camp acting peak with "The Abominable Dr. Phibes."
