Dr Phibes Rises Again

Three years after the events of The Abominable Dr. Phibes, the moon rises at a predestined angle and awakens the sleeping Dr. Phibes. To his dismay, he finds his house has been demolished and the papyrus scrolls he needs to find the Pharaoh’s Tomb in Egypt, where the River of Life flows, stolen. After identifying the man behind the papyrus theft, he packs and leaves for Egypt with his assistant Vulnavia, still intent upon awakening his dead wife Victoria. The parties responsible for the theft of Phibes’ scrolls suffer an attrition problem as Superintendent Waverly and Inspector Trout chase Phibes across the world.
