Vincent Price Double Feature!
HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL / THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES

Introduction to the double feature by Terry Castle. Discussion between films with THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES screenwriter William Goldstein.
HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL
1958, Warner Bros., 75 min, USA, Dir: William Castle

Morbidly whimsical millionaire Frederick Loren (Vincent Price) offers five guests $10,000 each to spend the night in his mansion, a haunted house with a homicidal history. The vastly underrated Carol Ohmart is delightful as Annabelle, Price’s amoral, murderous wife. One of director William Castle’s most entertaining frightfests. With Richard Long, Elisha Cook Jr.


THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES
1971, MGM Repertory, 94 min, USA, Dir: Robert Fuest

Director Robert Fuest, a veteran of TV series “The Avengers,” brings his flamboyant visual style and tongue-in-cheekiness to bear in this 1920s tale of the disfigured Dr. Anton Phibes (Vincent Price), a madman bent on vengeance after the accidental death of his wife. Trying to dodge various deadly biblical plagues along the way - Phibes’ preferred method for dispatching enemies - are Joseph Cotten, Terry Thomas and Peter Jeffrey.
