Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
The moon rises at a predestined angle and awakens the sleeping Dr. Phibes three years later. To his dismay, he finds his house has been demolished and his papyrus scrolls stolen, the scrolls he needs to find the Pharoah's Tomb in Egypt, where the River of Life flows. After identifying the source of the papyrus theft, he packs and leaves for Egypt with his assistant Vulnavia, still intent upon awakening his dead wife Victoria. The parties responsible for the theft of Phibes' scrolls suffer an attrition problem as Inspector Trout chases him across the world.

Biederbeck: I gave specific orders that no expeditions were to occur without my leadership. Baker: Is this your mountain, sir? Biederbeck: I regard it as such. Baker: Are we to take that literally, sir? Biederbeck: You can take it any way you see fit.

When the pregnant Virginia North was unable to reprise her role as Vulnavia for the sequel, Valli Kemp was cast instead.
Many of the characters were named after famous jazz bandleaders, (Biederbeck and Lombardo being the most obvious).
The desert sequences were filmed in Spain.
There was a lot of hostility between Vincent Price and Robert Quarry, particularly when Price discovered that AI were planning on replacing him with Quarry as their major horror film star.
