Abominable Dr. Phibes, The (1971, UK)

If our two loves be one, or, thou and I
Love so alike, that none do slacken, none can die.”
– John Donne

Strange, ritualistic murders begin happening to medical doctors. The only thing they have in common is a single patient that they failed to save. It couldn’t possibly be her husband who died at the same time… Or could it?

This tale of biblical revenge and eternal love is weird even by Price’s standards. There is little dialog. Price himself doesn’t speak for more than half an hour. Instead, we see him quietly disposing of those whom he blames for taking his beloved.

They really and truly don’t make them like this anymore. But after seeing the not-so-good doctor deliver “nine eternities in doom,” you, like us, will wish they did.
