Film screening & live organ performance by Alexander Hawkins.
With its art deco sets, dark humour, exemplary cast and soundtrack by Basil Kirchin, The Abominable Dr. Phibes (Dir Robert Fuest, 1971) is a cult classic.
This quintessential British horror film follows the title character, Dr Phibes (Vincent Price) – a theologian and musician – believes that his wife died a victim of incompetent doctors, and begins elaborate plans to kill them using methods inspired by the Old Testament’s Ten Plagues of Egypt.
Vincent Price is brilliantly camp as Dr Phibes and leads a cast that includes Joseph Cotten, Terry-Thomas, Hugh Griffith, Peter Jeffrey, Virginia North and an uncredited cameo appearance by future Bond girl Caroline Munro.
Supported by the BFI, this screening will be accompanied by live music from Alexander Hawkins, played on the mighty Hull City Hall pipe organ.
We Start Counting, a live show featuring The High Llamas’ Sean O’Hagan will precede this event. Why not make an evening of it? Book for We Start Counting and get free access to The Abominable Dr Phibes.
