Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972)

** out of 5

An absurd sequel to an equally absurd film.  I guess these two oddities in Vincent Price's oeuvre are just not to my tastes.  This one at least has better comic timing with the jokes it makes.  The plot is still nonsensical, but if you're in the mood for something with the same kind of hokum as mid-70s Bond films, but with a bit more art deco flair and psychadelic flavor to its Theater of the Absurd performances, give this one a spin.  Maybe watch The Abominable Dr. Phibes first; make it a double feature if you're feeling daring.
