view all

A deranged sculptor (Price, who else?) builds a sinister wax museum which showcases creations that were once alive. A remake of the early horror flick "Mystery of the Wax Museum," and one of the '50s most popular 3-D films. This one still has the power to give the viewer the creeps, thanks to another chilling performance by Price. Look for a very young Charles Bronson, as well as Carolyn "Morticia Addams" Jones as a victim.

House of Wax
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

The horror film, House of Wax, came out in 1953. It was released in 3-D, which happened to be one of the most popular 3-D films during that time. The movie has a run time of 88 minutes. Professor Henry Jarrod (Vincent Price) opens up a wax museum called House of Wax in New York. The horrifying thing is that he uses his victims as the wax figures on his displays. He covers them all in wax! Will any of his victims be able to make it out alive?
