Get Abominable With Dr. Phibes (LA Screening/Contest)

Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights! (like us on Facebook, if you dare!)

Vincent Price muthafuckas!

Ever since we screened the Price episode of Night Gallery as a lead-in to the original Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, my cohort Sebastian and I have been itching to do a full Vincent Price movie. And the time has come. This Friday, May 25th, we’ll be screening one of Price’s finest, weirdest films: The Abominable Dr. Phibes! As always, the screening will be at midnight @ The Cinefamily in Los Angeles.

Quoth the FNF power blurb:

Death is the ultimate trip, so won’t you come groove on the vibes of Dr. Phibes? Horror icon Vincent Price is known for plenty of savage, spooky and shocking roles, but none are as far-out as his titular turn in The Abominable Dr. Phibes! In this epitome of cool U.K. horror from director Robert Fuest (The Final Programme, And Soon The Darkness), Price plays a phreaky phantom of the opera who’s got a bone to pick with the stuffy British doctors who allowed his beloved wife to die on the operating table. With the aid of his hot chick sidekick and his bizarro clockwork band, Phibes wreaks vengeance on the M.D.s with wacky and gruesome deaths inspired by — biblical plagues? Fuest imbues the ‘70s psychedelic proceedings with visual flair and gorgeous production design, making this an abominable in-theater experience you can’t miss!
