Dr. Phibes Rises Again

US flag Dr. Phibes Rises Again 1972

Fun, but it doesn’t hold a candle to the original Dr. Phibes film. The antagonist is no fun whatsoever and generates zero sympathy. Even the Vulnavia character was replaced with a lesser and less attractive actress. Dr. Phibes seems more demented in this outing, which does not help the film. He eventually disappears with Victoria (his semi-living wife) on an underground river beneath a pyramid… for all the world looking as if there would be another installment, and apparently several films were scripted, but, sadly, only the original and this film were actually produced.
