  Dr. Phibes Rises Again...
Between working on putting together a new swing set for the kiddos and holding down the fort with them while the missus worked all day Saturday, I managed to get to Ed McKay's used books and pick up Batman Begins and Dr. Phibes Rises Again.

I watched the latter last night with my lovely wife. It was as chock full of camp, weirdness, novel offing of characters, and organ music as I remember. Well worth the cash I plunked down for it. I think the thing I love most about it was Inspector Trout. Watching him and his boss track Phibes as people died around them was a hoot (in a really weird way).

If you want a look at a homicidal maniac that could teach Freddy a thing or two go rent this. Heck, buy it. The Midnite Movies release of it is as barebones as can be, but the transfer is clean and it's dirt cheap.

when they re-issue this DVD with a deluxe new package, i hope they'll include this fine summary:
