Revenge Is The Best Medicine. Meet Doctor Phibes: a one-time concert musician who's now an all-time crazed murderer. In this clever, crypt-kicking classic, horrormeister Vincent Price plays a diabolical doc seeking the ultimate in revenge with precision creepiness and surgical wit. Watch Dr. Phibes live up to his promise: "Nine killed her, nine shall die, nine eternities in doom!" After a team of surgeons botch his beloved wife's surgery, leaving her for dead, the emotionally distraught Dr. Phibes creatively concocts a fatal prescription for revenge. Using the Good Book as his guide, Phibes unleashed a score of old testament atrocities -- from a plague of locusts to an attack of rats -- on his enemies that climax in what may be one of "the eeriest endings on screen record" (Syracuse Herald-Journal)!
One by one, Vincent Price kills off a team of doctors who failed to save his wife on the operating table. Due to injury in an auto accident, Phibes has no face or voice. He devises gruesome ends for the doctors, each death patterned after one of the plagues brought down on Ramses in ancient Egypt -- from bats to locusts.
