History

The Abominable Dr. Phibes

The accident also affected his voice, so he can barely talk, he talk by using a phonograph as his voice by plugging a cord from the phonograph to his neck. To make things worse, his wife died on a operating table. And with that Phibes blamed to doctors and kill them by using the terrible things used as plagues Moses warned Ramses and God sent on Egypt for not letting the Israelites free.
