  • I think we should give his head a decent burial.


Dr. Phibes: It is a pity in a way. We have so much in common.
Biederbeck: You flatter yourself.
Dr. Phibes: I think not. For years I have had one terrible obsession - to find the river of life once used by the pharaohs of Egypt. It lies beyond those gates, a river that gives new life, again and again and again.
Biederbeck: Why do you think I came here?
Dr. Phibes: You have all the life you need.
Biederbeck: No more, Phibes. The elixir that gave my life for a hundred years is gone. It has suspended time and age, but no more.
Dr. Phibes: How long? How many years?
Biederbeck: Too long to remember. Too long to throw it all away now!

Biederbeck: What kind of fiend are you?
Dr. Phibes: The kind that wins, my friend!


  • Flesh crawls! Blood curdles! Phibes lives!
  • They Haven't Built The COFFIN That Can Hold HIM!
  • The Sting's in the tale! Another horrendous story from the merchant of menace
