Picture It & Write, 24 February: River of Life

Ah, it is once again time for the week’s Picture It & Write over at Ermilia’s. Go check it out and add your brilliance!

As I mentioned on a previous post this evening, horror movies reign supreme in our house on Saturdays. I decided to go back to my tried and true favorite, Dr. Phibes for this piece I call “River of Life:”

The key! Where is…the key?! Phibes screeched as loudly as possible; he’d been asleep for three years and in that time Biederbeck had destroyed his home and caused him to have to travel around the world in search of the River of Life without the scrolls. And as if that had not been enough, cruel Biederbeck had taken Victoria’s sepulchre and stolen the key that opened the gate to the River of Life.

However, revenge was swift and sweet; having reclaimed his property, Phibes prepares to take his bride to the Beautiful Beyond. When moon and water reconcile, the secret River of Life shall be revealed.

  1. Interesting. I don’t think anyone ever took us into a movie with one of these prompts before. Something funny about hearing Vincent Price say, “terrible price.” 🙂

    1. The Phibes films are my absolute favorites, next to “The Car” (which I also used in a prompt some time ago). Never having been a hopeless romantic, the Phibes films were the closest to almost make me become one. The recitation of part of “The Good Morrow” by John Donne in the first movie did it…(oh, and I wrote about that in a prompt before also…hahaha!).

  2. Very creative. I do think this is the first to have a video accompany the photo. A great idea! Thanks for sharing it with us, AR Neal. 🙂
