I think my favorite V Price movie is The Abominable Dr. Phibes, outside of all the Poe films, of course. He’s just so good in it. You really feel for him and his wife even though he does kill just about everyone in the movie. Well, he killed only the people he thought deserved it. Not that they did, of course, but I can see how someone might think that based on what they did to his wife. I like how he was inspired by the 10 plagues of Egypt to create all those elaborate deaths, even though some of them aren’t exactly believable. Favorite death? The frog mask. Yeah, the frog mask.

My dad said they must have had 100 copies of it at Video Hits Plus and all but 1 copy was left. He got that one. Lucky us, I guess, but after seeing it I’m not so sure. It’s not bad, per se. You could even call it good but I don’t know if I’d call it a Batman movie. I came for Batman but all I got was the Joker. More to the point, all I got was Jack Nicholson in clown make up. At least the soundtrack was good. Both the main song and all those Prince songs. I don’t think it’s possible not to like a Prince song, though my dad might have a word or two to say about that.…
