Abominable Dr. Phibes, The (1971, UK)

A series of medical doctors begin dying in strange and ritualistic ways. 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. Our lead doesn’t speak for more than half an hour into the movie. 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 eternities of doom, you, like us, will wish they did.
