The Abominable Dr. Phibes

 (1971)

The Abominable Dr. Phibes Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Doctors are being murdered in a bizarre manner: bats, bees, killer frog masks, etc., which represent the nine Biblical plagues. The crimes are orchestrated by a demented organ player with the help of his mute assistant. The detective is stumped until he finds that all of the doctors being killed assisted a Dr. Vesalius on an unsuccessful operation involving the wife of Dr. Phibes, but he couldn't be the culprit, could he? He was killed in a car crash upon learning of his wife's death...

The Abominable Dr. Phibes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Abominable Dr. Phibes is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory, an imprint of Shout! Factory, with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.84:1. This is one of the stronger looking transfers in the new Vincent Price Collection set, one which perhaps benefits from the film's relatively more recent genesis. While there are certainly quite a few age related specks and flecks in attendance, that problem is more than offset by some lustrously beautiful color and an overall very sharp and clear looking image. Fine detail is exceptional, revealing the weird fissures in Price's "mask" as well as some of the intricate patterns in the deco lair of the good doctor and things like the tweedy material in Cotton's overcoat. Colors are nicely lush and extremely well saturated, with the reds and purples in Phibes' hideaway especially nice looking. Fine grain is natural looking and there doesn't appear to have been any aggressive digital tweaking done. I'd probably be prone to boot the video score here up to 4.25 if I were able to.


The Abominable Dr. Phibes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Abominable Dr. Phibes features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix delivered via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. This track is very clean and clear sounding, offering both dialogue (and Price's post-looped musings) with precision. (As mentioned above, Price's voice is intentionally distorted, which is faithfully recreated here). The best part of this track is Basil Kirchin's playful score, which utilizes a bunch of fun source cues to spice up the proceedings. Fidelity is excellent, though there's not much dynamic range to this film, despite some florid touches with the big Wurlitzer theater organ.
