One of my favourite horrors, if not my favourite, it’s The Abominable Dr. Phibes, from 1971. A gloriously dark comic romp where a crazed, heartbroken organist plots revenge against those who let his wife die on the operating table. Beautifully directed by Robert Fuest, it drips with period atmosphere, and if I hadn’t have been trying to do this poster so simply, I’d have loved to have included the brilliant supporting cast. Great score from Basil Kirchin too.
Tempted to do a companion piece featuring the other Phibes ‘look’.
