Dr. Phibes Rises Again Movie Review

Terribly uninspired, this sequel to the bizarre and hilariously gory The Abominable Dr. Phibes has Phibes (Vincent Price) reanimating himself after three years of death (he engineered his own embalming at the end of the first one) in an attempt to find his scrolls holding the key to ultimate life. This of course leads to innumerable murders, though they aren't nearly as amusing as in the original -- vultures and animatronic snakes? Spare us. Phibes, alas, would arise no more after this installment.
