Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 155: Sun June 3

How To Make a Monster  (Strock, 1958) & Dr Phibes Rises Again (Fuest, 1972):
Roxy Bar and Screen, London Bridge, 3pm
Another double-bill from the Classic Horror Campaign, a pressure group trying its best to get horror films back on our TV screens. You can find out more about them via this Facebook page. And more about this afternoon's brilliant double-bill here.


Chicago Reader review of Dr Phibes Rises Again:
'Vincent Price was once asked on a TV talk show how his skull-headed Dr. Phibes had risen again after embalming himself at the end of The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971). Price replied grandly, “He disembalmed himself.” This 1972 sequel to the camp classic is more of the same—which is to say, priceless. Robert Fuest, of the British TV series The Avengers, returns as director, and Peter Cushing puts in an appearance.' JR Jones


Here is the trailer.
