Dr Phibes, that bizarre evil genius of The Abominable Dr. phibes, is back with all his old diabolic devilry for another excusion into musical camp fantasy.

Dr Phibes, who went into a state of suspended animation at close of Abominable, rises three years later to restore life to his wife who died many years before.

Quest for the necessary elixir hidden in an ancient chamber below a mountain once used by the pharaohs takes him to Egypt, where Robert Quarry is his rival in race for the re-incarnating drug. Phibes starts decimating Quarry’s men who would prevent him from bringing his loved one back to life.

Vincent Price, as Phibes, delivers one of his priceless theatric performances, and Quarry is a properly ruthless rival who nearly matches Phibes in knowledge and cunning.
