Critics reviews

Can Vincent Price’s presence—an eccentricity veiled by urbanity—be overstated? Those discreetly sinister eyebrows, knowing smirk, and slithery voice became the stuff of camp, and never was he ashamed to commit effortlessly. Even when his appearance was strictly vocal—an invisible man, a ratty Disney villain, or Michael Jackson’s most underrated collaborator—his physicality permeated through the audio. There is, perhaps, no greater demonstration of these dual strengths than Phibes.
