St. Mary Redcliffe Church, Bristol, England
I am not a ‘dyke’ or a ‘yid’. I’m not a man in drag nor a failed abortion. What I AM is someone who doesn’t have to put up with someone else’s shit and ‘take it’ like I keep being told. Sorry, despite how many times it’s parroted back at me from whichever other dipshit was heard saying it first,…
One of my favourite horrors, if not my favourite, it’s The Abominable Dr. Phibes, from 1971. A gloriously dark comic romp where a crazed, heartbroken organist plots revenge against those who let his wife die on the operating table. Beautifully directed by Robert Fuest, it drips with period atmosphere, and if I hadn’t have been trying to do this poster so simply, I’d have loved to have included the brilliant supporting cast. Great score from Basil Kirchin too.
Tempted to do a companion piece featuring the other Phibes ‘look’.
