Horror History: Tuesday, May 18, 1971: The Abominable Dr. Phibes was released in theaters

Love means never having to say you’re ugly.

One by one, Vincent Price kills off a team of doctors who failed to save his wife on the operating table. Due to injury in an auto accident, Phibes has no face or voice. He devises gruesome ends for the doctors, each death patterned after one of the plagues brought down on Ramses in ancient Egypt — from bats to locusts.
