    The Complete Doctor Phibes Coming To Blu-ray

    The Complete Dr Phibes [2-Disc Blu-ray]

    “Nine killed her, nine shall die, nine eternities in doom!”

    Horror legend Vincent Price (The Fall of the House of Usher, Theatre of Blood) is Dr. Phibes, former musician, current murderer. Seeking revenge from the medical staff that left his wife for dead, he sets about knocking them off one-by-one in a series of elaborate murders based upon a Ten Plagues of Egypt. Death by bats, by boils, by blood and more await the nurse and surgeons who failed to save the life of the beloved Victoria Regina Phibes!

    A camp classic, The Abominable Dr. Phibes sets itself apart from the seventies horror crowd with its knowing humour and art deco sets, and also prefigures the Saw movies with its increasingly fiendish set of murder devices.

    Pairing the original film with sequel Dr. Phibes Rises Again, The Complete Dr. Phibes provides viewers with a double diabolical dose of macabre thrills and black comedy.

    Special Edition Contents:
    - High Definition digital transfers of both films
    - Newly created exclusive content
    - Deluxe Edition collector’s Box featuring original artwork
    - 100-Page Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film, archive content and more!
    - More to be announced closer to the release date

    Release Date: 9 June 2014

    Pre-orders up on Amazon.co.uk. At £34.99, I think I might hold out for a possible Shout! Factory release of Dr. Phibes Rises Again and pick up the first Vincent Price Collection while I wait.

    Amazon's preorder prices for Arrow titles tend to start steep and drop as the release approaches - probably as Amazon's way of safeguarding themselves against unexpected increases in the RRP as the release date approaches (their policy of honouring the lowest preorder price has probably bit them on the arse one too many times ).

    The preorder price on Arrow's website is much more reasonable, at £19-99: http://www.arrowfilms.co.uk/shop/ind...product_id=349

    Thanks Paul! I wasn't aware there was a difference between the pre-order prices on Amazon and Arrow's site.

    This is looking to be a pretty cool set. I may have to double dip! I just watched these a while ago, but I'm curious to hear the commentaries.
