“A plague on both your houses. In fact, I’ll help…”
I saw this the first time over the weekend. Loved the art deco and the smoking hot assistant. Was she supposed to be a robot?
I believe so…maybe? She returns in the sequel, which is a neat trick after the acid thing. However, she’s also played by a different actress, so you can theorize that Phibes hypnotizes young women to fill a slot as needed.
When I first saw the second film I assumed she was a succubus Phibes summoned to do his bidding. I think I’d go with the android explanation now though since he did have a bunch of clockwork devices – maybe she was the ultimate version?
“I-am-al-ready-dead!” One of the more suspenseful climaxes in 70’s horror. The inspiration for SAW?
Please, PLEASE Hollywood! Do not remake this movie! Its perfect as it is!
I’ve read that Burton and Depp have their sights in it.
Actually…that could work.
If I remember correctly, she was going to be revealed as the Greek goddess Athena in one of the scripts for the never-realized third movie.
Athena? Wouldn’t one of the Furies make more sense? Odd choice.
