The Abominable Dr. Phibes

Buy Tickets

(1971) dir Robert Fuest w/Vincent Price, Joseph Cotton, Virginia North, Peter Jeffrey [94 min; 35mm]
One of the most astoundingly designed films of the 70s, THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES weaves the gruesome tale of a former scientist who concocts an intricate revenge when his beloved wife dies during an operation. Phibes pursues and murders the perceived wrongdoers using the nine Biblical plagues of ancient Egypt as inspiration. Featuring a deliciosly demented Vincent Price performance and gorgeously over-the-top art nouveau sets.

It’s that time of the year again when people start buying candy and jewelry and putting up pictures of cherubs everywhere. As much as we love celebrating love, we feel that sometimes there’s too narrow a definition applied around Valentine’s Day. Here with the antidote is our latest REEL WEIRD BRATTLE late night series. From David Cronenberg’s transgressive masterpiece CRASH to the bizarre obsessions of THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES to the alternative affections of SECRETARY, we present a series of weird and wonderful films that are all, no matter how strangely, driven by passion.
