The whole Dr. Phibes series is Liberace on mescaline. I saw the first installment on a big screen and then had to walk home a couple of miles in the semi-dark. I laughed and gave myself 4 demerits for feeling creeped out. Vincent would be proud.

Lab Mode splits between contemplative work and furious experiments.
Both of which require you to stay the hell away from everyone else.
This is a feature, not a bug.

Wow -- 30+ years since I have seen that. As I recall, Mr. Price was proud of the character as being a bit deeper than all the Hammer-esque films he had done.

 

I never figured out how he got the honey to drip on that one victim without waking 'em.

That's gotta be the second rarest phrase in the English language, the rarest of course being "highly respected keytarist."

IIRC, the victim had been drugged before having her head coated with that green, honey/vegetable goo. The resulting view of her insect-ravaged skull freaked me out big time, as a kid. I still loved the movie, though. For a long time I dreamed of our church organist playing "War March of The Priests".
