I remember these movies ! Dr. Phibes was like a more current Batman villain ( Think Harvey Dent / ” Two – Face ” with both sides of his face hideously disfigured a la 60’s Dr. Doom or an evil version of Darkman ) with a liberal sprinkling of 1960’s Batman – series campiness set in the 1920’s with steampunk technology.
Of course if they made ” Dr. Phibes ” movies today, the violence would be EVEN MORE graphic.
